Winston's Eyes

I have all these 4x6 inch panels that my husband cut for me to make paintings on, and decided that instead of making a painting of a tiny cat, I would just focus on their eyes. The tabby cat in the previous posting is still not finished because the frame I had painted for it turned out too small for that panel, so I did another one of my cat Winston.
I'd been chasing my cats around with my camera for two days, because it's just too darned hard to get a cat to pose for a sitting for very long. Even for photographs though, cats can be real jerks sometimes. Believe me, they know I'm trying to get a picture and they will keep turning their furry little backs to me. I did get some good shots to work from. My iPad makes it so easy too--no printing, and no film developing; I just prop my iPad on the table with his picture for my visual reference and paint away.
