Vern Schwarz saw this cute kitty yesterday. Nala was lucky enough to catch Vern's eye when he went to deliver a couple of paintings to the Winnepeg Humane Society.

Can you believe this is Vern's FIRST cat portrait!? Can you just die of envy with his ability to render those "are you the one taking me home?" eyes? Thank you again Vern. We appreciate your participation in the program, what it means to those critters waiting for homes and just love your art making this world a brighter place.


  1. Wow, this is amazing work, and for a first work even more so. I hope Vern paints more kitties in the future!

  2. Vern, you are so generous with your talent, you have an award waiting for you on my site

  3. I love this one!

    Very soft, delicate, and almost impressionistic.

    The orange color in the background works so well here.

    Just lovely!
