“Friso,” a portrait of my friend Lya’s cat, is done! This is a 10-3/4" x 13-1/4" wholecloth painted piece that is heavily thread sketched. You can read about the painting process in this blog post and this one. The thread really gives him texture and you can almost feel the fur looking at it.

Of course, my cat Wicked had to take a closer look. With her black and white markings, she looks a lot like Friso, but has half a mustache and half a goatee.
Next week, “Friso” will be on its way to Lya in the Netherlands.
