Something different today...  my Layla kitty.

A little birdie told me my paintings will be featured on emptyeasel.com this week...  Perhaps that will bring new blog visitors which is always fun.  Yay!

  1. I think you really captured your kitty's personality with this one, which is amazing since it's a veiw from behind. She looks like a sweet cat. And I love the dashes of bold red here and there!

  14. Lovely painting, I like the warm colour of the background and the dry brush marks at the bottom.
    The tabby markings on the kitty are lovely - looks a bit like the cat I've just adopted!
