tabby cat with his portrait

A Beautiful Tabby Tuesday

I want to share with you a beautiful portrait of Dexter that we received this week. We were contacted earlier this month to have a portrait painted for free in exchange for a shoutout on Instagram (which you can check out here) – but I thought our blog readers would want to see it as well!

I let the artist Vicki Liu choose which cat to paint, and after visiting the blog, she selected Dexter! With Dexter being my first cat as an adult, I was very happy with her choice. (Not that I have a favorite cat, of course!) When the portrait arrived, I was so happy with it. Her pet portraits are accented with a pop of gold, which you can see swirling around Dexter.

And here’s Dexter posing with his portrait. He approves!

And finally, here is the original photo that inspired the portrait.

Vicki has been kind enough to offer our followers 25% off their first pet portrait if you mention Three Chatty Cats. Her prices vary by project and size. You can see some of her pet portraits on her website and also follow her on Instagram!

Olive is now wondering where her portrait is!

  1. I sent Vicki a picture of a previous kitty. (It was an email of a snapshot.) We got it yesterday. It’s beautiful. It looks just like her. Thanks for the info. Most painters want digital images. This was perfect. The current cats are jealous.
