The grandchildren made my task of painting very easy by larking about near a pond near the house of the grandparents who commissioned the piece. After tearing around for a while the girls settled naturally into this pose as they watched the ducks.
I was so pleased that a customer from over twenty years past chose me to paint this portrait of his late Maine Coon cat, Yankee. As an animal lover and the owner of a lovely cat, Louie, I can feel so much for their loss. Using photos I was able to put together this view using the very lush and luxurious couch and cushions that seem so in keeping for this “King”.
