Yesterday, I made a delivery.
I'd been asked by John and Juli, (of Mjölk), to do a commission of their two cats. I had a lot of fun coming up with the idea for this painting. First off, their cats are beautiful, and were a lot of fun to paint. But I also wanted to include something in the painting that was very personal to them, so I chose to include their beautiful Berber rug that they acquired while thrifting in Scandinavia. I thought it was beautifully designed and would be a lot of fun to replicate. Truth-be-told, it wasn't always fun to paint. It was quite difficult because, as you can see, there's a fair bit of detail in it. I'm so happy with the finished project though!
I just finished work on another project with them that I'm excited to show very soon!
