My friend Birgit used to live in a hundred year old house. I loved the interior. I have been lucky enough for her to occasionally pass on photographs that I have used as reference material. This is one of those shots!

  2. I like the warm touch amidst the greys of the cat's tummy, as well as the pink of the ears. You've captured the languid gesture perfectly, but I also admire your work on the chair upholstery and all its various tones and planes. As always, wonderful depiction of the light - super, Kaethe!

    1. Thank you! They are very different from one another...the cat and the chair. It made it fun to paint.

  4. I love the shape and color of the ears mixing in so well with the chair fabric. The face is precious.
    Anything you paint is always outstanding. A pleasure!

  5. So beautiful Kaethe! The cat looks velvety soft as does the chair - (I imagine it is made of velvet but realise it might not be!) Love the light streaming in and the cat's sleepy countenance.
