Sweet Gus

Sweet Gus
8" x 10"
oil on canvas
private collection

This is Gus. He belongs to a good friend. Every time I would go to her house, Gus would most likely be sitting on the sofa and I would sit next to him. Unlike most cats that would run away to some dark room in the back of the house at the sight of an intruder, he would stay and let me pet him and just sit quietly - nothing seemed to bother him and always seemed deep in thought.
He was a cool cat and will be missed.

  1. Sweet Gus - The background of your experience with Gus explains the overall calmness in the eyes. As with any pet portrait... the eyes tell the story and usually are the key to whether the painting works. Kudos.
