Another gift commission, this one a college graduation gift. Kagi was a homeless cat found in a forest in Japan. Now living in the lap of luxury in Atlanta. Hopefully I'll be there to see the recipient receive his gift. Something started to feel familiar as I was painting and I realized I know someone else with one of these stubby-tailed Japanese cats and had done a portrait of their cat several years ago. Didn't even realize they came that way. It hangs out at a auto repair shop during the day so I just thought it had had a bad experience with a car door.
