Huey "Chewy" Adler Kauffman, RIP

My friends Brad and Joan are mourning the loss of their beloved cat, Chewy. He was a big cat in every way. I think the painting looks a little cartoonish, but he did have a "Sylvester" look about him. Of course, he was a black cat shot inside against a dark background so not the greatest photo to paint from, but I really enjoyed doing this for them.

He's beautiful - both the cat the your painting of him. And what a special gift.

Love love love this one. You make really great animal portraits, not at all mawkish as they can so often be. I love 'em.
