Hello everyone!

I finally finished my kitty picture. I used to call her my sweet Abigail (Abby for short) so that's what I decided to title the painting. I'm pretty happy with it. I know a couple of you wanted to see it finished - so here it is! C&C welcome. Thanks for looking. :cat:

You've done a beautiful job! She has a very royal, dignified expression LOL ! Nice job with the eyes too...I always think they make or break a portrait (human or animal).

Very nice kitty - I like the blue curtain behind her.

She's a beauty - well done!
Any chance of close ups of details?

Jan: Thank You! She was the "Queen" of the house in her day, and she looked the part, too, lol! I'm glad you like the eyes. This is the first time I've painted eyes on anything, so I was experimenting. I was pleasantly surprised that they turned out so well. My husband probably thought I was nuts because I couldn't wait to show him, lol!

Gail: Thank You!

Maureen: Thank You! Certainly I can get some detail pics! Sorry I didn't think of that before, but that's what you get when you're dealing with a rookie, lol. Anything in particular you'd like to see close up?
