Eye Catching Serval

These are also a very beautiful cat. Smaller that the tigers and lions of course, but you certainly would be wary of sticking your fingers in the cage. OUCH !
I found this one in the Austin Zoo a few years back. He (or she ?) was up against the bars, so I took the photo bars and all, and doctored it in Photoshop when I got home.
He was intent on something, certainly not me, he could have cared less about yet another gawker looking at him.
Simply stunning coat though, I loved painting him.

Oh, what a sweet kitty. I'd love to give him a big hug. You're work is incredible (as always).

Very nice Rae. Your animals are beautiful. I have some of the velour and I've been meaning to work on it but I'm currently obsessed with copper.
