These are gray and orange tabbies sleeping together. I'm thinking about entering one of them in the upcoming county fair. Which one do you like better?

Lovely-You really have an intimate relationship with these felines, Since I am a graphite lover-I'll go for the black and white one!

Dolores said...

I have two sisters who are the grey colour although one is a short hair and one is long haired. Unfortunately they do not like each other and so they would never curl up together. A shame really. I like both the grey and the orange tabbies.

Karen Hargett said...

Oh how cute! I'm partial to gray but those orange kitties and that paw are too cute.

Kathleen Coy said...

Aw, there's nothing sweeter than cuddling, sleeping kitties. Wonderful job, Akiko!

As much as I love the colors of the orange kitties, the composition of the gray cats and the smile on the little gray kittens face makes me like the gray one better.

Oh I love your twins. Their interaction are so sweet and of course you captured it so well. In my book you are queen of the Realistic Animal Acrylic.

Mona said...

These are both beautiful, but I think I like the orange ones best because the color allows them to stand out more. Good luck at the county fair!

Edward Burton said...

Both are wonderful, Akiko, but I'm a little bit more drawn to the orange one due to the position of the heads and the paw sticking up.

Melody Lea Lamb said...

Oh Akiko, these are wonderful!! I like the orange tabbies best. These little paintings are so charming and endearing...I want more! :)

Diana Marshall said...

You got to be kidding, how could anybody choose between these two equally adorable & beautiful paintings!! What talent you have and on such a small scale, I am in awe.

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

A very hard choice. I like the smiles on the gray kitties better; but the orange is more colorful. You can't enter both?

jane augenstein said...

Ahhhh, they are both so beautiful I can't pick one!!!

Adebanji, Dolores, Karen, Kathleen, Dominique, Mona, Edward, Mel, Diana, Christine, and Jane, THANK YOU ALL for your wonderful remarks on my kitty paintings. So far orange tabbies have more votes.

Christine, I am entering two ACEOs and one of which is already decided, so one of these kitties will be the second one.

Gail H. Ragsdale said...

love them both, but the orange kitties are special.

artbyakiko said...

Gail, thanks! I also have a soft spot for orange tabbies.

Doris said...

Beautiful work. I especially love the orange kitties. Your love of animals shines through your wonderful paintings!

Vern Schwarz said...

Akiko, I have to admit, I miss seeing their eyes because of the fabulous job that you do, but these are wonderful. All the best!

Jala Pfaff said...

I'm sorry, it's impossible to choose. I love the little smiles in the gray tabbies, but love the color in the orange ones...

artbyakiko said...

Doris, Vern, and Jala thank you so much!
It seems orange tabbies are getting more votes. I think I will enter the orange one.

I love both but the orange kitty with the face turned forward and looking so contented is so sweet. Great job.

Fuzzy Brush said...

OMG Such a choice! The greys look like my Sadie and I could just hug them to pieces but I think the orange tabbies show a more unusual posture albeit very cat like. Most artists would not be able to come up with that 'under the chin' pose in such a realistic way. Other than that Akiko...just toss a coin. They are so beautiful!

DEB said...

Awww! It's hard enough to paint one cat in such miniature detail, let alone two! You are the master!

artbyakiko said...

Jeanne, Doris, and Deb, thanks for your kind remarks!!

theresamillerwatercolors said...

Akiko, your work is outstanding!

These are so endearing and cosy Akiko, I totally love them!!

artbyakiko said...

Theresa and Karen, thank you so much!

Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor said...

They are just so sweet and so well done - just about brings tears to my eyes:)

artbyakiko said...

Jen, thanks for your visit! I'm glad you like these kitties.

Gwen Bell said...

What precious kitties! It's so hard to choose which ones I like more...the orange or grays. How about one kitten from each?

L.Holm said...

Who could choose! They're both so perfect. Love them both!
