Lucy & Gabriel





















10 x 10 oil on canvas panel SOLD

Just finished this commission of this adorable
pair. This was just one of the lovable poses
their Mom sent me for reference.

Gabriel, the cat, is the oldest and is completely

accepting and accommodating to his new rambunctious,
ever growing playmate. Don't you love it when dogs
and cats get along? If only more humans were this
inclusive of others and accepting of the differences!

Another note about Gabriel...he is black as coal but
has white whiskers and one stray one that grows out
of this eyebrow. So unusual!

Terrific painting! Wish my dog and cats would get along. Those are some lucky owners, not only do they have harmony in the house but they also get a beautiful Gwen Bell original:)

I'm taking a lesson - next time I see somebody 'different' I'm going to tackle them and lay on top of them until they agree to be my friend! Paco does that to Isabelle, too.. Poor Izzy!
Beautiful work. I love the white whiskers!

What a great painting Gwen. Yes I do love it when the animals get along.
My cats just love my dog and vice versa. They are all quite adorable together.

A thoughtful post.

I LOVE it - great expressions! Beautiful painting ... I have a dog who only sees cats as chase toys - none of my friends have cats, so she's never met them up close. One day we'll get a kitten, I'm sure they will be best buddies.
