Abyssinian Cat Portrait Miniature

Now back to some vintage images. In the summer of 1981 I made a series of miniatures to sell at conventions. They had a blank space for the owner to have her or his name inscribed. I chose various fan-friendly themes including cats, unicorns, and dragons. I did my portrait of an imaginary Abyssinian cat in an Egyptian setting. The white oval at the bottom of the image is for the name of the owner. Somebody bought this but I don't know who. It was a long time ago. The cat is now mummified.

Abyssinian cat miniature is 2 1/4" x 3 1/2", ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, summer 1981. This has been heavily restored in Photoshop.
