Hello all -- Here is an orange beauty guarding her young one with a "don't take a step closer" look. I love the contrast between the wisened features of the mother and the innocence of the kitten as they lie together. In the original photo of these cats there was another kitten present but I opted to omit it as its face was buried beneath its sibling with just the bottom end sticking out. Just the two of them made a better composition.
This is oil on canvas measuring 40 x 30 cm. Anyone interested in purchasing this painting please contact me here. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the local shelter.
