On the picture I was given, her ears were flatter and she looked almost mean.
Leah Jackson, a dog portrait painter I truly admire, says she doesn't do cats cuz she makes them look mean, and no one wants a mean picture. Up until this painting, I had no idea what she was talking about.
My most vocal critic (and supporter, too) says now she doesn't look mean, just intense.
I think she looks a little sweet.............
We'll see what the woman who commissioned this says.
