Pastel painting on tinted 9″ × 12″ Strathmore pastel paper.

This work is inspired by, and dedicated to, all of our world’s orphans…my painting is based upon a stunning, heart-rending photograph of an abandoned kitten, taken by Red Bubble member, Mike Ross, who so kindly allowed me to use it as a reference for this work.
Features: Cats & Dogs; Pets Are Us; Revealed; Cee’s Fun and Artsy Friends; Art Universe; Cat’s Pajamas

The story has a happy ending and the kitten found a loving home:)

Thank you for visiting my site. I work only in traditional mediums—primarily, oils, pastels, charcoal, and graphite.
