Third in Maine Coon Oil Paintings

What can I say? I am so thrilled with how Simba's pet portrait turned out! I painted Simba's housemates Baxter and Skylar before, and this guy's portrait was the final piece.  I cannot express how much I enjoyed painting these guys.  Maine Coons are such beautiful cats, with their flowing long fur, huge eyes, and almost dog like attitudes.  No wonder they're such beloved cats!

What I love the most about Simba's painting is his look of defiance.  He seems to be full of attitude, as though he's saying, "Hey! What about it? Got something to say?"  Yeah, that's what I see when I look at this guy and I'm so happy I was able to convey that.  It was such a precious part of this portrait.

I still have a few spots open for Christmas but do not wait otherwise time will run out!  Contact me using the button on your right if you have any questions.
