Rest in peace, handsome

The Cat Who Came in for Winter Solstice
Oil on canvas, 20" x 24" COLLECTED
The collector who commissioned this Original Finger Painting recently contacted me to let me know of Miles's passing yesterday, January 9, 2011.

He and his wife were grateful for the painting, as a way to remember a member of their family. You can see the posts documenting the painting, from the sneak preview, to the finished artwork, to the commission inspiration.

I'm saddened. I actually had the opportunity to meet Miles a couple of times and he was every bit as handsome in person as he was in the reference photograph. He'll be deeply missed.

My condolences to his adoptive family, and my own gratitude for having been a part of creating something meaningful.

Invite Beauty,

I.
