Back in April of this year, we did a cat portrait contest with a very talented artist from Ontario, Canada named Beth Pimm and received a lot of paw-sitive response and interest from our readers. Now that it’s approaching holiday season time, we thought it might be fun to host another cat art contest.
We were thrilled to find an exceptional pet portrait artist named Maria Feels from Moscow, Russia and she was delighted to offer one lucky Purrington Post reader the chance to win a custom portrait of their cat. Below are a few examples of Maria’s portraits … she does them all using colored pencils. Impressive huh! >^..^<
