It goes without saying that I love cats.

They're adorable, quirky, and make no sense 99% of the time. There is no logic when there is a cat involved.  Cheesy

These are two pet portraits I whipped up with soft pastels on velour paper of two of our three felines.



This is Crush...



...and this is Fidget.

Cutest little boogers in the world, snuggly and goofy. Love them ~

I will most likely be redoing Crush's portrait in the near future, compared to Fidgets I'm not happy with the results.

Your application is beautiful! I love pastels on velour paper. The sophisticated and educated version of a "Velvet Elvis". Grin
Thank you for sharing your work.

the second is stunning! its hard doing series of paintings (well i find it hard anyway) theres always one that you arnt as fond of. i think its the pose that really makes the second its a more unusual one to your usual 'portrait' kinda pose. more intimate, engaging Smiley

Your work is remarkable. Your cats are lovely and I cant believe the details with all the little flecks of color in their eyes.
If I weren't allergic, I would soooooo be a cat lady.
