9 x 12 oil on stretched canvas
Another furry portrait commission! With this one I could see the eyes! Had a disk of photos to work from and wouldn't you know, Daisy always had those little front paws tucked under her. Wonder what that means in "kitty speak body language"? Such a pretty cat - and with those big yellow eyes - so paintable. Since this was a portrait of Daisy, the kitty beside her was given less detail. I'm becoming very fond of cats! Daisy is now in her new home in Pinellas Park and I'm missing having her and Mitzi in the studio where the two of them have spent lots of time looking at me from the monitor and the easel as I squinted back at them!
