Pet Portraits

Animals are another favorite of mine to paint, of which cats are a particular favorite, but I’m drawn to animals of all shapes and sizes, and with each portrait I endeavor to capture the animal’s personality and intelligence.

I have two tuxedo kitties that I adore, Bob and Tommy.  Bob, the youngest, is very photogenic, which means he stays still long enough for me to take photos.  He also has the most direct gaze and expressive face.  I painted him here, from a photograph I’d taken, as he sat squarely facing me as the afternoon sun lit up his black fur.

If you would like a portrait of your furry child, send me an email for sizes and prices.
