The Girl and her Cat | BE
This is a portrait of myself at 15 with my cat. Rainbow was so much more than a cat, he was my dearest childhood friend. He would listen to me read to him and he would sit on my chest to calm me from panic attacks. He would even stop by to check on my sleeping, often crawling into a little ball at my feet. I miss this dear little friend.
The source image for this painting was of me and him in his favorite chair. I decided to not paint this realistically but paint from the joy and also sorrow that I felt on seeing this picture of us when he was around.
