Another feral cat at Rockaway Beach

Size: 8 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Hardboard

This is Izzy. He is a beautiful gray cat, blind in one eye. In this painting, he is looking straight at us with a beautiful sunset sky behind him. The caretaker told me that Izzy and Reece are the only cats still living at the beach. Finding a forever home would be a great Christmas gift for them.

Beautiful Akiko!

Thank you for your kinds comments about Heckle passing. Feels so strange just to have one cat left after having so many.

Akiko, he's a very handsome looking fellow. I love this pose, and of course your masterful painting.
