"Shy, Shy Simon," 2007
This is one of two portraits done for Kris Tsujikawa. I promised her one of Maxey last year and I planned to do one of Binky this year.
Kris has three lovely tuxedo cats. She sends digital images of them that she shoots with her Nikon D-40. Yes, I am jealous of that camera, especially since my little digital Nikon was stolen when my house was broken into last month. Or was it the month before? Time flies by.
I thought that the photograph that she sent that is this painting's source was Binky. But when I gave her this portrait, it was obviously of Simon.
