I did this painting this afternoon from a picture I found of a lovely little kitten. I am really enjoying doing these animal portraits especially on the velour paper. I find this paper is perfect for doing the soft fur of animals. This painting is for sale. Please contact me at email@example.com for information regarding the purchase of this or any other painting.

This is a portrait of my late cat Crystal who passed away several years ago. She was the most beautiful blue point Himalayan and I loved her dearly. I found this picture and thought I would give it a try as my dog Harley turned out pretty good yesterday. She is done in pastels on velour paper.

Just finished this portrait of my dog Harley. This is the first time I have ever painted any type of portrait. I very much enjoyed this. It is done on velore paper. I absolutely love this paper for pastels. The pastels just glide on like butter. Very satisfying. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for info on this or any other painting.

I really enjoyed doing this pastel as I really feel a connection with the ocean. I have always lived very close to the sea and love being either on it or around it. I think this one portrays the icy water in a hard storm at sea. This pastel is for sale for $50.00. If interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for having a look.
