Despite what my sister will tell you I'm not a crazy cat lady . Here's our Layla again. She's sitting on a child's chair my husband and I acquired at a country auction. The chair is covered in chippy green paint-- and it had a really warm evening light on it--Maybe there's too much indian red on the chair and kitty ear. Besides that and a few other details-- I'm actually happy with this one.

  2. Diane,

    The luminescence of the sunlight through Layla's ear is perfect and mirroring it in the chair was brilliant. Always be guided by your artistic instincts. (Easier said than done)

    I see nothing wrong with painting one's cat over and over when they are as cute as our cats {;-)>
