Anna wanted her portrait to include her 5 cats. I started with a favorite photo. As will show in the end result, focus of eyes has been altered to gaze lovingly on the
viewer. as is her way during conversation. Not surprisingly her cats images have been produced from photographs and "arranged" around her. The cat over her right shoulder looks in from screen door, and the lower left hand cat is one of those who will stare you down.
Final image about 40 x 30". Acrylic and pencil.
