Oil Paint on Canvas
12" x 12"
It had been too long since I'd created a pet portrait. In fact the only other animal portraits I had ever done was another oil painting (one of my very first portraits) back in 2009 and a charcoal drawing in 2010. I knew my skills had grown quite a bit since then so I was excited to see what I could do with beautiful Grigia. When Grigia passed away her human parents decided they would like a painting to commemorate her life. Being a fellow cat mama I completely understood and was delighted to capture Grigia; which means "grey" in Italian. Her plush fur took days to layer in but the final results are better than I could have imagined. I'm so thrilled with the results of this piece and am glad that the couple will be happy, remembering their adorable Grigia, when they look at my painting.
