SHUROK - a friend's friend

Shurok  9x12  Oil on Masonite

This kitty named Shurok was the friend of one of my "blog friends". Shurok died not long ago and it has saddened me that my "blog friend" is so sad.
I made this painting without permission and I hope that my friend will not be offended.

I always make a painting when somebody or a pet in my family died. It has helped me help myself grieve and remember.

Maybe this little painting might bring back some happy memories.


  1. I am speechless. So impressed and do not know what to say. Thank you for your support, attention, thank you for this painting. Then I opened my Google reader today and saw this excellent painting, I could hardly say a word, I recognized him and feeling your helping hand is a fantastic experience...

  2. Thank you, Irina. I hoped very much that you wouldn't be upset seeing the painting.

    Warm regards

  3. Hi Ken,
    It seems to me Shurok was a happy cat. It's always sad to know a loved pet is gone, they're part of the family...
    Best regards,

  4. Hi Carolina - you're right he (Shurok) was a good and happy friend.

  5. What a wonderful gesture Ken! Your love of animals and caring of others really shines through with this painting. A very lucky friend.

  6. Yes, Liz I'm an animal lover! But this painting was and "easy" assignment - good photo, good cat and a good friend. What more could a artist wanna-be want?
