A friend of mine has two lovely cats, Marianne and Ginger, and has recently commissioned me to paint portraits of her “children”. I just finished Marianne today while sitting in a Iowan Super 8 hotel room. It was a lovely day outside, but I wanted to get this painting finished while I had a decent amount of time off from work. I see her this weekend and hope that she loves it.
Lately I have taken to painting portraits of people’s pets – I find it relaxing when I am stuck in isolated hotels for long stretch of time. Of all the ‘Pet Portraits’ I have painted this year, I think this one is my favorite.
Next week I will start Ginger 🙂
