Late Bloomer

Late Bloomer  Oil on panel, 8" x 8," SOLD
I'm told this kitten was initially too sick to be put up for adoption. She (he?) had to heal and get stronger first in a different part of the shelter, an area that is not open to the public.  
I'm including photos because LOOK! ... frail but spunky...and a pleasure to paint.


  1. you have really captured the sweet resilience of that sweet baby.

  2. My goodness, how you capture these little darlings just makes my heart go all puddly. You are a master at your art!

  3. Your painting makes me want to just hug and kiss this kitty. She/he has to be one of the sweetest paintings you've created!!!♥

  4. Awww....this kitten has melted my heart! What a cute, sweet baby. I hope he/she
    is doing much better and will soon have a wonderful furrever home.

  5. Love her spirit, which you captured wonderfully

  6. Hi Diane,
    One can only imagine how many darlings you have placed in forever homes due to your kindness and your diligent practice of these masterful paintings.
    You're an inspiration.
