"Byron" - Missed, but never forgotten

"Byron"

I just finished this painting and it's taken me a bit longer to finish this; I wanted to get it perfect, as it has special significance. This is the late Byron kitty. His owner shared with me how special he was to her and is deeply missed. It was an honor for me to paint this for her, and I hope it brings a lot of comfort and good memories.

I'm sure Byron was as handsome as you've painted him. Great looking painting.

This is one spectacular portrait. I just love how you made it detailed in the face and no-so in the rest of the picture.
Wonderful piece.
