Intermission...


While I'm working on some new art, I thought I would post a video for your entertainment.

Here's one of my favorite videos, it's of my Mom and Dad's cat Valerie. I love this cat so much! She's a very sweet!



Here is a portrait I did of Valerie. It's also one of my favorites. It was one of my first pet portraits and I gave it to my Dad for Father's Day. I know I've changed my techniques since this portrait, but there's just something that I like about this one. I have the tendency to be a bit critical when I look at my older work, by this one gives me warm fuzzy feelings. Probably because I have such a soft spot for Valerie. Her little nickname is "Moo Moo." When she was a kitten she would walk around the house saying "Moo Moo!" it was just too precious! I think I should dig up her kitten pictures!

The portrait is great, but she really doesn't look very "nice" in the vid... She looks TOTALLY TICKED!!!! Too funny! Grammy from CC

I think she is so laid back for the bath! And even seemed to be enjoying the brushing.
Gorgeous portrait. It is a true treasure.

Thank you! She's laid back compared to the other Persian kitties I grew up with! She kinda likes being brushed, she's a sucker for the attention! She also gets baby food as a little treat after it, so I think that helps!
