Double portrait of my niece’s cat.. and she loved it. A rather good thing that some of us artists don’t reveal how we do things because the photos she provided me with were totally awful!! The cat was “fuzzy” and out of focus half the time and I think out of about 25 pictures there was ONE that was almost decent.. that would be the top one… the bottom one? That’s my secret..

NOTE: Reno passed away in 2010.
