These two paintings represent my first ever portraits of cats. I paint plenty of dogs—a Dachshund, a Cocker, and one particularly adorable Brittany, among others—but until I painted Noah and Mookie I’d never painted a kitty. To see process images of the making of Noah’s portrait, check out this video.
