Chia the Cat, Mark Two; Oscar the Cat.

Oscar the Cat, above, has no vision in his right eye. This is a 5 x 7" portrait in pastel on paper, for Oscar's loving humans over in England.

Below, Chia (the Second), also pastel on paper, 6.5 x 8.5". For a friend on The Motley Fool boards. She liked the first Chia portrait so much she ordered another for her sister.

Remarkable how, though I was using the same materials and techniques, Chia demanded utter refinement which Oscar stubbornly refused. The personalities of the animals always seem to direct the work more than I do myself.
