Great looking piece Matt.

Susan said...

That's beautiful! Are the other cats jealous? lol.

Nancy Bea Miller said...

Lovely! You really caught the light.

Deborah Elmquist said...

Not only is the painting beautiful executed but he looks just like my cat, Felix. That look must be universal for cats. Felix gives me that hauty look that you captured so well.

Hi Matt, This is beautiful. It caught my eye right away but I didn't realize it was yours! It was great seeing you down in Atlanta. Thanks for the great blog. What great paintings and sculptures, Lea

stunning Matthew, fantastic piece.

Absolutely amazing work...brings to mind the Dutch little masters..Gerrit Dou for one. Nice work!

Brandy Agun said...

Wow! I love this! What I find so compelling is the character of the cat. Her expression. Like she is tolerating her portrait being painted as she is of course royalty and has other important business to attend to. Very, very well done. And I'm so glad Susan bought it! Way cool! Thank you so much for you blog and your art.

Beautiful Matthew! Nice to meet you at the Portrait Society of America Conference. We got to chat briefly about the blog and all the great work you're doing with that but not about your paintings which are by the way stunning! Thanks for your hard work keeping us informed about the art world!

Really beautiful painting on so many levels Matt, nice textures, color, expression etc. Susan is lucky. I'm sure she had a lot of competition to get this one.

What a beautiful painting... S&S are lucky to own it. Double Congrats on such stellar work, and the sale to such fine artists.

I hope Leo doesn't see this - he'll be unbearable to live with! Congrats on an awesome painting of an awe-inspiring feline :)

Had the cat been human...you would have won the Draper award! Im not kidding,this piece is unique!

If I encountered humans entirely covered in hair, I'd probably be a decent portraitist! Thanks for the love.

Matthew, this is an exceptional painting. It falls into the category of "I wish I had painted that". You don't know me but I really enjoy your blog and appreciate the updates.
yours,
