One thing I learned from my cats while growing up is that sunspots are an awesome place to nap! Josie and Ginny are no exception to this rule, as they found a warm patch of sun to share on the back of their couch.
Josie and Ginny are two cats that were adopted by one of my family members, and they are both greatly loved! Last summer, I was asked to create this portrait of them as a surprise present for their owner. Ginny is the calico cat, and Josie is the orange tabby.
I loved painting this image because of how relaxed and content the cats were. The venetian blinds and a plaid pattern on the pillows also gave me a welcome challenge, as I’ve never painted them before.
