Cocoa the Cat

For my latest commission I was sent an envelope full of great photos of a very handsome black cat and given total freedom to chose which one I wanted to paint.

It looks to me like Cocoa loves his garden.  Perhaps he’s out there pondering why black cats get such bad press.

I love the way the light is bouncing off his shiny coat.

Before the painting left to go to its new home my own little black cat gave her approval :)
