Cat Portrait Finished.

8"x10"oil on aluminum art panel

Smudge is completed.  He's a fine looking bengal cat and he posed so nice for his portrait.  

I hope to do more commissioned portraits even though the stress level increases dramatically when someone is expecting...  well I'm never sure what they expect but I do obsess a bit about it.  Commissions are definitely an example of me stepping out of my comfort zone but it does feel good to create a unique and lasting keepsake for people. I'll paint a portrait this size for $250.00 if you happen to know anyone who would like one. (person or pet)

Hoping you have a great day and if you're Canadian, don't forget to vote.


  1. How unique............wonderful job, Bonnie.

  2. Smudge is gorgeous, Bonnie! You've done a marvelous job!

  3. This is nice Bonnie.
    This kitty's eyes look just like our Tyger's eyes! Big and bright. I wonder if Tyger has a bit of bengal in his genes....

  4. Absolutely gorgeous. I am sure Smudge's owners will be thrilled with it.

  5. Good work Bonnie. As a former veterinary receptionist, I would advise posting a flier on local clinic bulletin boards. People love to have keepsakes of their babies.
