I just listed these two ACEOs on eBay. The first one is one of our cats Temmy. I like the intense gaze in both pieces. To see the listings, click the image.

As you can see in these paintings, the pupils of domestic cats are slits while big cats have round pupils like people.

Wonderful, I can't believe how prolific you are. Do you even stop to eat Akiko? These are just beautiful, and thank you too, for the mini lessons about the eyes. I didn't know that!

Kathleen Coy said...

Absolutely amazing, as always!!! Beautiful job, Akiko! :-)

Sheila, Doris, and Kathleen thank you so much for your visit!!

Hi Akiko, I especially love the tiny reflections in the snow leopard's eyes. One thing I find a challenge is to portray animal hair when it is angled 'head-on', and you did it beautifully in both of these.

Dean Grey said...

Two more amazing cats, Akiko!

I personally love the bottom one the best. It looks deadly!

Thanks for the info about the differences in the cats' eyes. I never knew that until now.

Fantastic miniature works of art.......as always!

Mona, Thanks! Cats' eyes have so many different colors. I especially like the combination of green and orange.

artbyakiko said...

Dean, I agree; you don't want to mess with this snow leopard. However, Temmy (the cat on the top) is also deadly in my house. lol

L.Holm said...

Fantastic, Akiko! Have to laugh at your comment that Temmy's deadly in the house! I woke up one night because Angel was growling and holding a bleeding mouse over my head. (aaack!!)

Both of these are gorgeous.

Vern Schwarz said...

Akiko, these cats are superb. Your standards are always so high and so consistent. I don't think I could ever sign anything using this level of accomplishment as a gauge...but it gives a worthy target if anyone chooses to aim this high.

DEB said...

Akiko - Your paintings make me miss the cats we used to have! We are all allergic now, and have to make do with our bunny, but as hard as he tries - He's just not a cat.

Sandy said...

You've so inspired me to get busy on practicing cat drawings..these are beautiful, just like all your others.

arcobaleno said...

Gail H. Ragsdale said...

Temmy is incredible! Your work takes my breath away!

artbyakiko said...

Liz, I have to say that 'all cats' are deadly. lol

Vern, thank you. You are too kind.

Deb, I love bunnies, but am allergic to them. :(

Just beautiful Akiko, it always amazes me how detailed your work is for its size-you must have a very delicate touch!
