Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. I had the honor recently to do a memorial portrait for dear friends of their little friend, Flash. As you may have seen in past posts, my studio companion during the pandemic has been a cat. A lot of people tend to characterize cats as aloof and not particularly good companions. That is a stereotype that does have some basis in fact, but not all cats are aloof. My cat is extremely affectionate and loves to cuddle with me. I say that to say that I’m told Flash was the same way: a very affectionate and loving cat. I know that his people really miss him very much, and I hope that the portrait brings a bit of comfort for the loss.Thanks for looking. I hope everyone is safe and well.
