A painting that I send to Holland

Last week I send a painting to Holland to a wonderful couple who just happen to be good friends of mine. They have this very special character at home and his name is Milan.

and this is his portrait of him.


Because I know they have received Milan's Portrait, I can now share it with you...

Love it! The whiskers look incredible. What a great gift to receive, I bet they were delighted!

Holland said...

Thank you so much... Actually I waited until the painting was dry before I did the whiskers... a kind of "do or die" moment.

Wonderful portrait. I hope Milan also likes it.

Holland said...

Ricardo: He is very used to attention, so I guess he plays cool about his portrait...

They are... They told me that in the portrait he looks the same as when he sees a fly.
