Here’s a portrait I finished at the beginning of December. Fanny’s person received a portrait gift certificate for Mothers Day so she could get a portrait of her sweet Fanny, a little Bombay kitty. I had several photos of Fanny to work with and some very active and cute poses, like sitting up on her haunches to watch a squirrel at the bird bath. Her person wanted to make sure her incredible eyes were prominent, so watching the squirrel wouldn’t work.

In another she was on the mantel near the flowers, but she was looking directly at the viewer, and I knew that impish purrsonality was the one. Fanny had visited the mantel often when she was younger and could hop that high in one leap, so it was a happy memory. I thought a portrait of curious Fanny contemplating the woodland sunflowers would be a good interpretation of her purrsonality, and her person agreed. I used other photos to create the pose of her I wanted and moved her closer to the flowers.
