At Rest, oil pastel painting of Oreo

I finished Oreo's painting. It's titled "At Rest" and is an 8x10" oil pastel on watercolor canvas board, varnished for protection. I figured I've spent a year photographing the kittens...maybe now I'll spend a year painting them. :)

See more photos and purchase this original painting here.

This is the first painting in my new series, 365 Cat Paintings.

Thank you! It's been so long since I did an oil pastel, I was really worried about it turning out okay. I'm so glad it did...and it looks so much nicer in person than in the photo.
