add a kitten and it would make a wonderful mural for a child's bedroom. (Family Portrait) LOL

LOL! This is so charming but it DID give me a start! At first, I thought the two figures were NUNS! (Romance in Brugge??) Had to look again to see that they were cats! LOL

The colors are so warm and inviting and really well placed with a wonderful sense of balance. I'm not sure if everything tilts to the right or it's in just the photo. However, the tilt just adds to the whimsy of this piece. The church balances the whole and I like it!

One of my favorite cities! I saw nuns too at first! (Isn't this the city that has the famous bridge to the convent?)
I like the way this stack up.

:clap: Also one of my favourite cities. Absolutely crazy about your cats . I think the colours are so bright and welcoming. I think you should sell a series of your cat paintings as cards. They are winners. Chammi.

Wonderful and whimsical, Lisa! Lovely warm colors; the only nit is that the buildings seem to lean somewhat - great Kitty Lurve. Nothing takes one's eyes off the other except a moon like that one! :cat: :cat: I agree you should do a set of cards!!

My birthday is in September if you ever wanted to send a "cat card" LOL :D

WOW, Everyone, I am really flattered. Did not expect such a nice surprise.
Yeah, everything is tilting a little, looks worse on the pic. I have a tendencany to paint on an angle.. :eek: .somtimes, I even fall off my chair. :D

Wayne, Thanks so much. No kiddies on this romantic stroll. Man and wife! Finally a night out. LOL. It would be a good idea. I will do a family one soon.

Gilberte, so happy you love it.. :) ;)

LOL Dana and Kathleen.... Nuns. Thats funny! Nuns run astray..Too much romance in Brugge. It is a beautiful city, one of my fav! It is the Beffroi.

Chammi, Tam and Linda (September what?) So happy you like the cats. Thanks about the card series. That would be an idea... ;)

Thanks Mikey, My husband is always saying that. "Stick with this style"

Hey Kim, I am so glad :) yeah! Charlotte!
