Truffles

This is the second in the series of three pets for my friend. Truffles is part Maine Coon so she is a big kitty. Her color is lime green which means her owner buys everything in her color.

Daisy's color is purple.

These are very lucky pets.

You are the pet artist supreme!!!! This terrific Sheila. Those cats always seemed like a bobcat or lynx to me

Hey, Sheila, these are wonderful paintings! I really love the eyes, especially, on both of them. So round and deep. I can't wait to see the third.

Sheila, thank you for coming over to Oasis in Puerto Rico. I like your cute Miss Truffle kitty...and I just ate one....I mean a Godiva Truffle! Sorry about the weak humor...your light-hearted kitty put me in a silly mood! I'm placing your blog on my sidebar roll so Oasis readers can find you, too. <3

Hi Sheila,

Very lovely...you've captured the proud spirit of the Maine Coone! I shared my house with one for a few wonderful years. I still miss his thick ruff, giant lily-pad paws, and emperor-like demeanor.

Hello Shelia - This type of fur pattern is not easy to accomplish, but you did so beautifully. Keep painting these; I can't wait to see more!

Very nice, Sheila, you really conveyed the size of the cat. I love the green eyes with the green background!

Now even luckier pets with their own painting by you. The eyes are exceptional.
