Artist's Description

This has been a rough week as my cat has been sick and the vet thinks he may have cancer. I have had to do a bunch of expensive tests to determine if he does or not; in the meantime, I have to hand feed him since he won’t eat by himself. I’ve had Harley as a constant companion for almost fourteen years now so it’s pretty tough to see him so sick (he used to be a big fellow at 19 lbs. and now he’s down to a little over 13 lbs.). Since I’ve never done a portrait of him, I decided I should do one. I used a photograph I took of him when he was feeling better as inspiration.

UPDATE: Harley Cat passed away on November 14 2011 around noon E.S.T., a few days after I made this picture. It had to be one of the worst days of my life. I wrote a post about it on my blog here, as well as included some photos of Harley.
