Gaia

This is my neighbours cat, who I occasionally feed when her owners go on weekends away in the summer. She is very sweet natured, and has the most beautiful green eyes.

I am attending a Karin Jurick workshop this November, and she recommended Ampersand Gessoboards, which I used for the first time with this piece. It has a smooth surface that has enough tooth to grab the the oil paint nicely. I also like the idea of not spending time prepping masonite myself. More time to paint!

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this painting, or if you would like to commission a pet portrait.

Gaia is just lovely, Catherine. You have a softness to your style that I adore.
