Commission Portrait

Size: 8 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Stretched Canvas
Sold

This is a commission portrait of a beautiful Siamese cat named Murphy. A few weeks ago, I received an email with several pictures requesting a portrait of a cat. This lady was also telling me that she was the person who purchased the miniature painting titled "Mountain Lion"at the MASF (Miniature Art Society of Florida) show.

Needless to say, I was delighted to hear that because I had no idea that my first-time entry for the show was sold! Unfortunately, I was unable to go to the show. I wish the show were closer to where I live.

Murphy is such a handsome cat! I like the soft blue background you used to compliment those hypnotic siamese eyes.

So realistic and those eyes are beautiful...

I can't imagine anyway being able to pass up your work if they saw it at a show.

Akiko...your cats are awesome, but I think you excel with whatever subject you take on. That puts YOU in the awesome category, too.

You ARE the cat's meow!

That's great that the buyer found you and added a commision. I always like to at least have a name and city/state from a buyer... otherwise I have this odd feeling that the work has been 'orphaned'!
