Here are two of three portrait commissions that I have done for Roxane. Both paintings are very large - 18 x 36 inches! One is of her black cat Gin and the other of her white cat Sel (which means Salt in French). I painted these paintings in several stages. First with an underpainting where I put in a nice reddish brown in the background area so it could peek through in the finished painting. These paintings were a real pleasure to paint!

This is the second portrait I have painted of the Chocolate Cat Gaia. Such a fun face to paint! This tuxedo cat oozes personality :-) This painting is 11 x 14 inches.

My latest custom black cat portraits are Lisa's lovely cats Leo and Lucy. Lisa says that Leo is not a small cat and looks like a mini black panther and that Lisa is part Siamese and has a gorgeous Siamese face with lovely pale green eyes. I painted two sets of paintings for Lisa. The first is a classic portrait style.
The next pair of paintings are of Leo and Lucy laying down, with Leo playing with his favorite feather toy and Lucy looking adorable on Lisa's lap.
Such a pleasure to paint such beautiful black cats!
