Animals are beautiful and challenging, and they offer many opportunities to create unique textures such as feathers or fur. My favorite subject was my cat Bunny (who sadly died in 2014). She was an unusually small cat and the cutest thing I have ever seen. Bun loved to watch me paint, too. I've occasionally painted pets for people, such as the pretty tabby lying on the rug below. And I'd like to introduce Pooj, my new kitty seen below.
