Cat's Eyes

Not For Sale

11x11" Oil on Stretched Linen

Painted from a photograph that my stepdaughter, Catherine, posted on Facebook a few years ago. My very first thought upon seeing the photograph was, "Amazing eyes!"  Actually, Catherine has an amazing face with the kind of distinctive features that inspire a portrait artist to paint.  Catherine Nichols was born in London, England, and is also an artist in Pensacola, Florida.

Beautiful portrait. Definitely amazing eyes! I love the detail of the hairstyle, it makes her seem familiar, recognizable.

Thanks, Cat. I actually gave her a haircut in the style she had grown into after the photograph. Catherine was pleased.
