Patch

Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Medium: Oil
Support: Multimedia Artboard
Sold

This is our newest rescue kitty "Patch." He joined our family right before Christmas last year. He was such a scared cat, but now he can't wait for his daily grooming session. Very sweet cat!

This painting is in oil, not my usual choice of medium, but I enjoyed it for a change. It is on eBay now. To see, click here.

Oh, Akiko...I'm at a loss for words...

Ok, this is incredible. The way you paint eyes...you are my hero and inspiration at painting eyes. Patch looks so sweet, please give him a big hug and kiss from me! :-)

I wonder how you can pick so much detail on such small surfaces! This is nothing short of amazing!

Incredible! The eyes are absolutely wonderful! Patch looks so much like my Little Kitty that passed many years ago.

Kathleen, thank you for your wonderful comments! Hugs and kisses back to you from Patch. :)

Adebanji, thanks! I like working on this size because it takes far less time to finish a painting, and ACEOs are collectible.

Gail thank you! Patch is cute, but quite muscular and strong. I cannot hold him long enough to give him a deworming pill. :(

Jane, thanks! He's getting more relaxed. He purrs when I stroke his back.

artbyakiko said...

Sheila thank you! I want to see more of your ACEOs!
