Finished Cat Portrait and Weekend Gig

Besides fluffing up the outline like Mona suggested, I reworked this portrait's nose, mouth and eyes. I am happier with it now than I was before. I am delivering it to the client tomorrow.
From the Y-Bridge Art Festival, I was contacted by a retailer in Rosecoe Village -- a restored canal town next to where I grew up and still travel to visit my mother. The retailer is doing a food drive for the county animal shelter and invited me to show my work in front of her store as part of the drive. Roscoe is a touristy place and their is a T-Bird car show there and an Air Show nearby this weekend -- so hopefully there will be plenty of traffic. I got some feet for part of my indoor booth from Flourish Canopy Co. which enable me to set up a single panel which is what I will do along with the print rack and doing a demo.
Have a great Labor Day weekend!


  1. Very nice. I really like that I feel like the cat is looking at me, now. I love eye contact.

  2. Thanks Mona! I moved the corner of the right eye (viewer's right) slightly before delivery. The client seemed happy. I am looking forward to finding out his mother's, who owned the cat, reaction when she receives this gift.
