Cozy Friends

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

This is my latest painting from a reference photo by my friend Karin in Switzerland. The models are beautiful Siamese cats named Kyra and Kalima. They are the models for most of my Siamese cat paintings. I have never met them in person, but can tell how sweet they are from Karin's photos.

This one holds a special place in my heart Akiko, since we've had our own gorgeous Siamese for 13 years now. You certainly have captured their affectionate, intelligent nature so well. Fantastic, as always and a Happy New Year to you!!! :)

Akiko, thanks for your visit and comments on my blog. Cats are just too cute, they kill me with cuteness. Glad you liked seeing my new Siamese baby.
I visited your home island once, about 25 years ago. I remember it was rather colorful, and hot and humid. :)

I have a dear friend who grew up with two siamese cats, and they would rest just as you've shown here. Lovely work!
