Portrait Marathon Update: Celeste is Done

Celeste turned out kind of moody, kind of 19th century, I think.  I'm pleased.  I hope you like her, Laura!  :)  Thanks for the opportunity to work out the unique challenges of this particular painting.  (I can say that now!  LOL )

I'm off to take a sick kitty to the vet.  When I get back, I'll start in on ... who's next? ... Ah!  Quilty!
Stay tuned!


  1. She is gorgeous, Xan... and I hope your kitty gets better riteawayquik!!!

  2. She looks beautiful!

    I hope the kitty is feeling better soon!

  3. oh, I love it! and the window pane divider shadow-becomes brindle-back to shadow is very cool!

  4. Beautiful portrait!
    Hope the sick kitty isn't the mascot of Bad Cat Vineyard :(

  5. Laura here - I LOOOVE it! It really captures Celeste's personality. Thank you. :-)

  6. Yeay! I'm glad you like it, Laura! :) Thanks, everyone.

    The kitty had to stay over, since the vet's out sick, and they want to observe her. It's Coco, the 13 year old shy kitty that my family thinks is a figment of my imagination, since nobody ever sees her. She's NOT happy about this, and I hated to leave her!

    But *ahem* this is not about that. Thanks for the kind words, folks! On to Quilty!

  7. I love the energy your marathon engenders, and the results are amazing! Good thoughts for Coco, sweet figment that she is!


I can't wait to hear from you!
