Excellent! I think Barnburner would hire it to act in the last issued chapter of his story. ;)

I like the sense of attention / observation on the cats face. This is the most amazing thing about this painting
Very focal!

Thanks everyone for your kind words, glad you liked my efforts, somethings new for me, more use of oil in the background and even a little glazing.
Cheers Geoff

Thanks for that, I try different tools etc to get an effect i have in my mind which alas does not always work out.
