Last month I commissioned some portraits of the Three Chatty Cats and the Jr. Associates. And today, I want to share them with you!
Dexter – The Timid Dreamer
Olive – The Rebel Starlet
Sophie – The Mischievous Goofball
Woodrow – The Lovable Dum-Dum
Harley – The Hangry Curmudgeon
About the Artist
Jennifer, who is a special education teacher, runs a small animal rescue with her husband. She has recently been auctioning off little paintings she’s created to help support their rescue – The Zoo Animal Rescue, which I featured on the blog a few years ago. I love all of the pieces she has been posting and asked if she’d be willing to do five personalized pieces for me. She said yes and I became her first official commission.
Creating the Artwork
You’ll notice each cat has a description above, which I first introduced in a post nearly a year ago. I emailed Jen these descriptions and a bit more about each cat along with some photos for reference. And from that, she painted their portraits and captured each one’s personality perfectly! I also love that she incorporated my blog header colors.
Open to Commissions
Jennifer is open to commissions if anyone is interested. While my pieces are 3″ x 3″, Jennifer can produce other sizes. You can email her directly to discuss pricing. And remember, the proceeds from her paintings support her rescue efforts! You can contact her at email@example.com. Let her know that Rachel at Three Chatty Cats sent you! (This is not a sponsored post, nor do I receive anything for referring you. I just want to support Jennifer and her rescue!)
Below are examples of paintings that she’s been auctioning off. All are 3×3 inches. Also, you can follow The Zoo Animal Rescue on Facebook and Instagram!
Samples of Jen’s Artwork
I love what Jen painted for us – I smile every time I see them. I’m pretty sure the cats are happy, too!
