Cuddly Oliver - Cat Commission IV



Cuddly Oliver, 8" x 10" pastel on Richeson sanded pastel paper. Photo reference by client Lisa Polo.

The commission to paint portraits of her three cats and her fur-nephew Poindexter has taken me so much longer than planned that I can't even go by the "multiply expected project time by three" formula. Got flu, got injured back, got sick with cold, got injured back, rinse and repeat... all 2011 so far. It's been maddening! In my street art days I'd have done all four of these cats in a day. At most a week if I was slowing down to layer them, which I did.

Instead, I've finally finished at the end of April. Drives me nuts.

Thank you! This is so great. I loved doing the series and I may be doing some more cat portraits for her later on too.
