Josie and Ginny

Painting 6

Josie and Ginny were adopted by one of my family members several years ago and are greatly loved.  Last summer, I was asked to create a portrait of them as a surprise for their owner.  Ginny, the calico cat, and Josie, the orange tabby, both love lounging on the back of their couch and soaking up rays of sun.

This painting was created by copying a photograph and adjusting elements so the cats face viewers.  The venetian blinds and plaid pillows were a welcome challenge to capture, I hope to paint more patterns and geometric shapes in the future.
