'Cathbad' tabby and white cat portrait painting

Portrait Information

This painting is 30 x 20 cm (12 x 8 inches) in size and is of Cathbad. His portrait was commissioned as a special birthday present in 2019 for his owner who adopted him last year from the ISPCA. The client, the lady's friend, wanted to give her friend something different. The client was very happy with the portrait. You can find more information on the commission on my blog here.

Client Feedback or About the Commission

"Ivana, the portrait arrived last week. My friend was delighted with it and amazed that you were able to produce such a good likeness from photos. Everyone who saw it thought it very life like and were really impressed. Thank you for making a special occasion really special."
