"Bun In A Basket"




















6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

Fellow blogger Sally Baker graciously gave her
permission for me to paint
this reference photo of her
beautiful cat, Bun....in a basket. She sent several others
that I can't wait to paint.
Thanks again Sally!

Beautiful work, Gwen. Cat and dog portraits have really been popping up a lot, and yours are exquisite. Have you ever seen Akiko's ACEOs?
Anyway, your little bun in the basket looks just like the cat playing hide and seek with the basset in my Sunday Funny Photo. I invite you to drop by and visit my wildlife art and needed humor site.

OMG he's beautiful!! It took my breath away when I saw him. You have really captured him to perfection. Thank you thank you so much!!
He is nine years old and I call him My Big Bunny (among other things).I can't wait for my husband to see this!!

I love this. I stopped by to tell you how impressed I was with your DSFDF challenge entry but I really love tuxedo cats and the detail on the basket is amazing.

Dear Gwen, The Big Bunster passed away earlier this year. I looked up this photo again and it brought a smile. Happy that it found a good home. PS: I'm painting cats myself now.
