Mighty Tortie painting of tortoiseshell cat

Mighty Tortie  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  SOLD
I kinda steer clear of cats with fussy coloration. They can make for a tedious experience painting...  There are so many Tortoiseshell cats at the shelters, all so lovely! I feel vaguely guilty for not painting more of them. There was nothing tedious about the "Mighty Tortie."


  1. Diane, this picture is beautiful! I wish I were rich so I could buy as many of your paintings as I wanted. You have such talent Thank you for sharing it with the world.

  2. He is do such good work promoting these kitties at the have nothing to feel guilty about. We women are so hard on ourselves, aren't we?!!! :P

  3. You nailed this beauty! I didn’t know that’s what this coloration was called. Love the nocturne background!
