Oil on linen on panel, 3 x 3 inches --
This is a cat I saw at my friend's house in Oregon. It was a rainy day, and this cat was looking outside from the top of a couch by the window. I liked her expression, and I took several photos of her. One of my challenges was to make her black body three dimensional, instead of just flat black silhouette. The other challenge was to treating the blind slats with the same intervals. I made the edges of the blind softer and more subtle.
