Lucky the Cat

"Lucky"  (pastel, 10x8 inches)  sold

Lucky was my last demo from the workshop, and a portrait commission from before Christmas. The girl who commissioned it had just received a 5x7 portrait of her dog, commissioned by her sister and painted by me. So this is her sister's cat, as a return gift. As soon as I saw the photo I knew I had to work larger than a 5x7 head shot! It just had to be the whole "kitten caboodle!" as my client put it. And she agreed.

This one was a lot of fun! Everyone was so entranced, no one took shots of the progress. But here I am finishing up, with the painting and photo...
