My little baby turned 1! She’s such a big kitty now! It was finally time to paint her portrait and put it on my wall alongside the paintings of my dog and other cat. I love doing custom cat portraits!

Kittens grow up so fast… They are the tiniest little things, you turn your head, and they’ve become giants! Della, my adorable kitten turned 1 year old last week. When I decided to offer pet portraits, I practiced on my dog and Aria, my first cat. When I got the kitten, I decided to wait for her to turn 1 before painting her portrait. Custom cat portraits and dog portraits are my favorites things to paint.

When I start a custom pet portrait, I ask my customer a little bit about their pet so I can infuse some of their personality in my paintings. I create bright and colorful portraits, without being too realistic. I like for the painting to be different from the picture. What’s the point of having a painting that looks exactly the same as the reference? That’s why I work with splatters of colors and fine line markers.

For my kitten, I wanted to show her goofiness as well as her cute and serious little face. I also wanted it to match the portraits of my other pets, hence the splash of yellow/orange. It adds joy and energy, and parallels the other paintings.

Custom cat portraits are not always easy. It can be hard to capture the cat’s personality but it is a challenge I love to take. Dogs and cats are so adorable. To me, they are family. I could not live without my fur babies. Little Della grew up to be such a beautiful cat! She’s probably one of the goofiest kitty I know!
