Cat Portrait in Oil

SOLD


After painting a whole string of dogs these past several months, I was thrilled when I was asked to paint this beautiful girl!  She is now passed and lived to a wonderful age of 18.  Her owner is a repeat client who had commissioned me to paint Shelby, the first Malinois I painted.  I can't tell you how much of an honor it was to paint this beauty and also to have satisfied a client so that they come back and ask me to do more work for them!  Once can't ask for more as an artist.

Once again, the client provided a wonderful reference photo which made me light up when just ooh and aah when I saw it.  It was a great high resolution photo with beautiful soft natural daylight.  The softness is what lends to the dreamy quality in this painting and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Next on the agenda is a German Shepherd commission.  This one will be headed to Germany, so I guess we can say it's a real German, German Shepherd? Wink-wink.

I've also got three pieces I'd like to complete for a a show, so I really need to crack the whip on myself.  I'm getting started right now on a swan.  Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon with more work!

P.S.  Don't forget, shipping is free in the Canada and the US if you want your own pet portrait commission and now shipping is also FREE in the UK!
