This is a second attempt at my first commissioned pet portrait. I'm still not satisfied with the results. The reference photos make this a particularly difficult and fascinating challenge. It required some reconstruction of the subject matter, where details in the original photo are obscure, and a reinterpretation of lighting conditions and color. The aptly-named Cutie deserved the effort.

Cutie Outside of Time (for Brittany). Acrylic on masonite, 8"x6". Cutie appears courtesy of Brittany.
