This was another little cat commission of a precious pet named "Empress Annie." Her owner, Margaret, told me she got her as a "foster" when she was about four weeks old and bottle fed her. Empress Annie went to work with Margaret until she was about four months old, and Margaret could never find a perfect home for her. Margaret gave me a few photos of Annie to choose from... but she mentioned to me that she has so many facial expressions, and I had to paint the one where she seemed to be smiling. Thanks again, Margaret.
And below, is a picture of a painting I was commissioned to do for a Christmas present. The little boy, Bentley (the couples' grandson) found himself in the painting.
