  • Angel Cat Portrait : Cuddles


    tuxedo cat angel wings custom oil portrait by Leanne Wildermuth
    I am so excited to share Cuddles’ completed portrait, I think this one is my new personal favorite! The feathering and dimension in her portrait combined with that beautiful background gradient, definitely makes me proud to sign my name to it.

    I’ve worked quite extensively on this piece the last couple of days, sang a lot of songs, uncrossed my eyes several times, and even forgot to eat.

    Here’s the previous progress shot:

    My client wanted her beloved kitty to watch over her now that she’s passed over the rainbow bridge, and I am so honored to be able to provide her with a visual reminder of her lifelong furry friend.

    All those details from the fur to every little whisker down to the glorious glowing eyes. Absolutely wonderful memorial for your client.

    I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the wings. Obviously its not my portrait to make those kind of judgements, but still. Skeptical.

    That being said, they turned out absolutely fantastic! What I expected to be a detraction from the wonderful-ness that is one of your cat portraits actually turned out to be wonderful in and of itself!! I LOVE them!

    I LOVE THIS PORTRAIT!! There, I said it.

    I wasn’t quite sure what I was seeing on his back in the WIP last time, but now that I see the finished work, it’s quite clear. Very thoughtful, very nice portrait.

    Hi Leanne, yes I agree with loving the beautiful background colours, and the eyes are just devine, like he is looking straight into your soul, I have tears, its just beautiful.

    Ok this is going to be a bit long but i gotta say it all.

    Leanne did this portrait of my 22 year old cat Cuddles. I got her when i was 5 years old (I’m 27 now), i picked her out of 8 kittens, she was the longest living of all (my family members had brothers and sisters) I absolutely love the portrait, there are no words to describe how beautiful it is.

    Leanne, i am so glad i found you, you are a very talented artist. It made me cry (at work) when i seen it in color. I will treasure this portrait forever and ever. I know will see my beloved and treasured baby Cuddles again, she will be waiting for me on the rainbow bridge (I’m totally crying right now.) I miss her so much.

    Oh and also i recommended you to my mother also. She also cried when she seen it. We are both cat lovers.

    Thank you once again!
