“Tippy” the Cat Portrait

“Tippy” – this is the one my customer chose

Meet “Tippy” the cat, she was a pet portrait commission for a customer to give to her friend as a retirement gift. Tippy was a beloved cat, and unfortunately she went over the rainbow bridge over a year ago. This was one of only 2 photos (at bottom) my customer had and she couldn’t ask her friend for another photo for fear of ruining the surprise. She’s not even on social media, so she couldn’t search for other photos, so I told my customer that I’d do the very best I could.

I ended up having a lot of fun painting Tippy, and I painted 3 versions of her, all 4″x4″ on ceramic tile with alcohol inks – and my customer loved all 3! She ultimately chose “Tippy”, so “Tan Tippy” and “Trippy Tippy” are for sale (below), and will be added to my website once they are spray sealed and resined. If you want first dibs and reserve one before it’s available to the general public, or to request your own pet commission you can contact me at 🎨 Vera  🎨
