Best in Show

Title: Soulmates
Size: 3 x 3 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia artboard

I am very happy to report that this little painting has won Best in Show at 2012 Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show hosted by Alabama Miniature Art Society.
The models are Benny (right) and Temmy (left). These two cats were literally soulmates. Temmy followed Benny everywhere. This award is especially precious to me because Benny passed on a little over a year ago at the age of 19. Temmy was very lonely for a while but she now seems to be getting closer to some of our other cats.

Un prix spécialement précieux et je le conçois... Un très bel hommage à Benny qui d'où il se trouve vous fait un beau clin d'oeil...
Moi je vous fais un gros bisous et vous envoie toutes mes félicitations.

Wow! What a wonderful piece and so deserving the award.

I remember the pictures of Benny and Temmy. Temmy always reminded me of Charlie who passed in 2009.

Oh WOW Akiko - good for you. Your cats are always a huge hit and with all the detail you cram into such a small space, it is no surprise at all that you do so well in the exhibitions :)
