Another Cat ACEO

Title: Persian
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia Artboard

This is a close-up of a Persian cat. When I saw the picture at morguefile (site providing copyright free reference photos), I was mesmerized by her beautiful eyes. I just had to paint this beautiful Persian cat.

This one is on eBay. To see the listing, click here.

She is a beauty, Akiko!!! I love not only her eyes, but also her lower lip. So cute! I could look at your cat paintings all day... :-)

Kathleen, thank you so much!

Your sushi rolls sparkle Akiko, but so do the eyes in this cat. It's stare really captivates my attention so that it's hard to take my eyes off it! Another lovely, intimate portrait.

Mona thank you! This Sushi is my first still life painting. I actually had fun. Might try more. :)

Gorgeous Akiko! Persians always look mean when I paint them. Yours looks friendly!

the eyes are not only windows to the soul but also exotic pools of color. I love the upclose encounter of this piece. I continue to enjoy my prize leopard!

Thanks again for your help with the technicalities of sushi.

Just discovered your blog and love it. Anyone who adores cats is an okay person in my book. And can paint them too! I'm adding you to my blogroll so I can come back soon.

Vern Schwarz said...

Akiko, how do you do it? Your cats live on the canvas or whatever you choose to paint on. Simply marvelous!

artbyakiko said...

Vern thank you so much!!

Deborah Ross said...

Akiko, I could hardly look away from this beautiful little face. You are the queen of cat artists.

simoart said...

Hi
This cat is beautiful, my son loves cats, I will show him your blog.

Dean Grey said...

Amazing blue eyes, Akiko!

Again, I don't know how you did this. This painting is just too small to be able to get that detailed.

You are one of the best pet portrait/miniature art painters I've seen!

Fantastic composition, expertly rendered, natural colors. This is officially perfect!!

-Dean
