PSP9 to fix red eye, Corel Painter to use brushes for painterly look. I created this for a printed and framed gift for my Stepmother who owned Shadow for 18+ years. Shadow had to be put down recently.

A very nice portrait, Beth. Had a cat named Shadow myself once(and then got a second named Sunshine). Sunshine lived for 21 years, quite amazing. #2622712
