Kirk the shelter cat

Kirk  Oil on wood  8" x 6"  SOLD
This is Kirk, he is very playful and affectionate. A tiny chunk of his right ear is missing, doesn't seem to bother him though... see photo.  I wonder if he was in a brawl before he landed at the Cleveland Animal Protective League?
Update:  Who knew?  Kirk's "notched ear" means he has been neutered!  :)  Thank you, dear subscriber for cluing me in!

  1. Quite elegant in the light with a wistful expression. Beautiful painting Diane - as always. I only have to read Shelter and my heart gives a little extra beat. They really provide a wonderful service to every community they are in but wish more people would get their pets from them.
    Fingers crossed on the give-a-way.
