This was a study in how to do short-haired cats. I just picked the leopard from a combination of images I found online and adapted the painting to what I wanted. 16 x 20″ oils on canvas.
Just before my nephew was born, my Mom and I spent a day and made a mural for him from the movie “Open Season” (2006 Columbia Pictures).
This is us working on it… 12 hours!
These have got to be the most-loved cats I’ve ever met! A friend and I traded a stunning handmade quilt for this rather large painting of her three cats. 14″ x 24″ oil on canvas.
I’m sorry to say the little guy in the middle died shortly after the painting was complete, but I’m glad that he’s been immortalized :)
