Three more commissions and I will finally have caught up on orders, and can reopen my stores again. Thank you so much to anyone who is waiting for a portrait - I do appreciate your patience.

Your pieces are so exquisite, Karen! I thought this was a photograph (actually, I've thought the last three commissions were photographs)! Such a beautiful kitty!!

Thank you so much Bridie and Sherry for your lovely comments.
Bridie, I started by building up a volume of work, by doing portraits for friends for nothing, and then I have stores on Ebay and Etsy, and then I advertise on a host of other sites.

Karen- I go back and forth between which of your work I prefer- babies/kids or animals. They are all so stunning. But I believe I lean toward the animals just because I love animals so. Not that kids aren't nice- but I'm just partial to those animals. :-)
Beautiful cat- love all your eyes. Better than a photo- they are "alive" in a way photos can't be.

What wonderful comments Carol, especially about the eyes. The eyes are my absolute favourite part of any portrait, so your comments mean a lot!!!!

You are such an expert on cats Akiko. I never knew what a Calico cat was and now I understand the name Cali (LOL) - thank you for educating me!!!!
