I took a quick break from dogs and cats to try a still life. This is actually painted from a photograph of a still life I found online- I don't have good lighting/space to set up my own still lifes. It feels very different to paint inanimate objects when I'm used to painting animals!

I was drawn to the warm colors in this cat, and also its eyes.

This is my first commission, of sorts! I donated a pet portrait painting to the silent auction of a benefit for my friend, and this is the winner's dog, Zora.
