|Gentle Giant by Drew Strouble|
This gentle giant is the second portrait the I have done of the cat named Bert for one of my patrons. I think that it is some of my best painting to date! You will too when you see it in person
Here's the comments from my patron who commissioned the original watercolor. "... I got my new Bert painting on Saturday and again I am speechless. I love the first one you did for me but this one is just amazing. I don't even know what to say about other than amazing. The colors and detail are better than my wildest dreams.... Thanks again for another amazing piece. You truly have a gift and it is a gift that gives so many comfort and joy. One day I will lose Bert but will always have these wonderful images to remind me of him. I believe God gave us animals to bring smiles and love and gave us people like you to remember them. So thank you from the bottom of Bert and my hearts."
And comments from a wonderful customer that added a framed Artist's Proof of Gentle Giant to her vast collection of my work. "It is absolutely STUNNING!!!!!! I love it, Drew!!!! I can feel Bert's entire essence in this magnificent painting. It will be the focal point of my new Catman Drew wall. Drew, I never pass your paintings without stopping and studying each one with pleasure and awe. Each time I see new beauty and skill. And his stray white hairs are perfection. Thank you, Drew. I am so grateful. More paintings to follow......"
