It's been awhile since I've been commissioned for a pet portrait, so I thought I'd take matters into my own hands.
This is Ophelia. She belongs to my good friends Erika and John. I haven't met her yet, but when I finally do, they probably should make sure to check my purse before I leave their house.
It's a graphite drawing on lightly textured paper, with small, acrylic paint accents. I'm so very happy with how it came out - the fluff, the tangle of limbs that only cats can pull off, the serenity of sleep.

Ophelia came into Erika and John's lives right after they finished up their ::ahem:: extended honeymoon traveling the world. You can follow all their adorable shenanigans on their blog where they're catching us all up on the trip. So interesting! Forty four countries! I won't spoil anything! But tell them I sent you! https://alldaysaresaturdays.com/
