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.

    • Hi Kelsey…it’s Steve, the owner of the cats. My wife and I loved your painting; we thought it captured them perfectly! The painting is now hanging on the wall of the very room shown in the painting. It’s funny to see the cats and the painting and the same time. It’s sort of like living and/or interactive art. (Or something like that…) Sometimes, they’ll end up posing as they were in the picture. Again, we really loved it!

      Also, I need to offer a correction: Josie is the blonde cat and Ginny is the calico.

      • Hi Steve, I’m so glad that you and your wife love the painting! That sounds fun seeing the cats with the image. Thank you so much for letting me know that Josie and Ginny’s names were switched, I’ll fix that right away. I’m so happy that you like it!
