Oliver - Orange tabby cat

I finished this one today. He's to go with Ruper, and I'm doing another painting of them snuggled together snoozing. This one is 16"x20". acrylic on gallery wrapped. He's a perfect antidote to the snowstorm we are having here.

Re: Oliver - Orange tabby cat

This cat is beautiful. Maybe I'll try Acrylic next time instead of pastel for my dogs.
It would brighten up any room.

Re: Oliver - Orange tabby cat

I'm a real pushover for cats and yours is simply adorable, I love the all too common pose of a cat just lying there and looking so loveable. I can see my cat lying there and miss her so much and she's been gone 3 years now. I love your painting.
