Rachel Parker is a self taught artist who works mainly in watercolors and does commission cat portraits. She began painting in 2000.
Taz, my 20+ pound Ragdoll kitten isn’t a kitten any more.
Abby’s String Theory – Mmmm, string is good. Abby is such a character. She’s the smallest of our three ragdolls, but she has the biggest attitude.
Last weekend, I got to shoot the Average Joe Cat Show. This is a fund raiser for a no kill cat shelter. There were some gorgeous cats, including this fella.
Taz has grown a bit since last you’ve seen him.
I’m happy to say that Abby is back in pictures!
My name is Kate Sumners and I am the artist behind Endless Sumners Art. My mainstays are charcoal and pastel portraits of people and pets; I also love photography and watercolor painting.
This one of the gorgeous kittens at Ragnificent Ragdolls. Who could resist something as cute as this?!
This is a wide angle close up shot, in a shadow box. If you click on the image, and view the large, or original sized image, Abby’s eyes are hypnotizing. They remind me of the Kaa, the snake in Jungle Book. I like the 3D effect you get with a wide angle lens, close up shot. Fun stuff.
Abby is so patient with me. In this shot, she has finally reached the end of her patience. If she could talk, she would be saying “Do you love me? Put down that camera and pet me. Some bonita flakes and catnip would be nice, too.”
