Murphy cat

So it's been awhile since I've posted. I just finished this portrait for our friends the Farren's of their cat Murphy, who just passed at 19. It was a lot of fun to make and has been a nice distraction from other worries happening at this time.
The main one being my grandmother who is beginning to fail at just about 90. It is amazing to me at just how long we can hold onto life even when our bodies seem to fall away from us. We all hope for a little grace and comfort when it gets down to the end, I know that's something I wish for everyone.
So making this little piece for friends has been therapeutic and synchronistic for me this past week and I thought I would share it with you.
