How about a cat?

I have just finished a colored pencil drawing of a kitten named Ollie. This drawing is a surprise gift for Ollie's owner. Ollie is the friendliest cat I've ever known, so I thought the owner ought to have a portrait of him.

Just thought I'd try something different

green frog wildlife animal acrylic painting  Here is a 14" X 11" painting of a green frog I finished yesterday. I just wanted to try out the new canvas boards I got, and to paint something a little different. I actually had wanted to paint a frog for quite a while, and this close-up photo I took about two and a half years ago seemed like a good one to try to paint.
