Like Tobey (from Tobey’s Gaze), TJ has a bunch of fluffy white fur and a piercing gaze.
This is a fun combination of a few techniques I’ve been wanting to try more: an extreme crop, asymmetric multiple canvases, and textures.

More pet portraits – here’s a bunch of dogs I’ve painted so far this year.
The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.
I put out a call for pet portraits early in the year and have done quite a few since then. Most of them I held off on posting because they were gifts and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. This batch is cats!
