"Francis" is for Mike DiCenzo. Mike commissioned the painting for his friend, John, who just got a cat that he loves. When I saw the picture of Francis, my heart melted, so I can believe why this cat is special to John.
Francis is a six-month-old kitten of an unknown, but beautiful, breed. I asked Mike about Francis's fun facts. In my mind, I could see him scratching his head. How would he know much about his friend's cat? He said that Francis likes to spoon with John!
I have a fun fact about Mike for you. He is a writer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. So is John, by the way. I am feeling famous, painting for famous people and all. Hahaha!
