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 :)

Meet Bob

At home we have a crazy black cat and a lovely, fun dog, and it’s through walking our dog in the park every day that I  have made some really good friends, human and canine! One of these friends recently had a special birthday, so I surprised her with a painting of her cat (who I had the pleasure of looking after last summer).  This is the wonderful Bob:
