CAT. 2013. Acrylic on Arches Paper. 14 3/4″ x 17 3/4″. (framed size)
First a study, then a painting … and now a limited edition work on paper.
Back in the summer, I was commissioned by one of my collectors to paint two portraits of her cats Jaz and Max. While I was working on them in the studio, I had the studies pinned to the wall and when people stopped by, more and more of them began to comment not only on how much they liked the portraits but the studies too – in particular, the study for Jaz.

CAT Work On Paper Available for Purchase.
As people’s interest grew, the question arose as to whether Jaz might become available as a work on paper, which it now has and is simply titled, CAT. CAT is available either as a framed or unframed, hand painted, limited edition of 100, work on paper. If you are interested in purchasing a CAT work on paper or would just like to find out more, please follow the link to Jason Oliva’s online store.

Cat and Dog Portrait Commissions
Although Jaz and Max were my first cat portraits, I had been commissioned to paint a number of other animal portraits prior to that, including dogs, a breed of cow and a racehorse! So if you are interested in commissioning a portrait of your cat, dog or any other creature that means something to you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Portrait commissions always make for interesting paintings … and they can also make great gifts!
