Siamese Mix

Siamese Mix - 6 x 6 Oil on Gesso Board

A friend of mine who just started up her own photography business, recently came over to take some photos of our cats for her portfolio.  This painting is from one of her photos of our Zora.  My friend really has a way with animals, because Zora just sat there politely on a pillow and posed for her to get off several shots... amazing!  She got a few of Bonita also, but Belleza, as per her m.o., was missing in action :)

Zora is a Siamese-American Domestic Shorthair mix... or something like that.  She has the trademark gorgeous blue eyes, but when the pupils are dilated they actually look red, and it's not just the camera--they are glowing red.  It's kinda scary actually!  But when you get to know her, she's a real sweetie.


  1. It,s a marvel, she has such an expression, and what beautiful eyes!

  2. Your love for your cat really comes through your painting! Lovely!
