This piece was done as a commission for Christmas. Jackson and Lola are a pair of Chihuahuas living in Austin, TX (the skyline in the background.) I tried to capture the dogs' personalities based on descriptions and photos and I think I did a pretty good job.
These two cats are Cricket and Calypso. Both were second generation (at least) strays - born without a home. Cricket was lucky enough to be found and given homes along with her siblings. Calypso just found a home in Pittsburgh PA. I'm planning on doing more of these small images -they're about 2x3"- and selling, framed, on Etsy. A portion of the profit will go to Columbus' Cat Welfare Association.
