You caught that "You talkin' to ME?" look perfectly! I love how you painted the complicated stripey-area of the fur...

I love it!

This looks so much like my cat, Miss Lily! I love your cat paintings. Also, the one of red geraniums on the steps - but I always seem to find your finished works after they are SOLD! Any chance you offer prints of your originals? If not, guess I'll have to put an alert on Ebay to let me know when you have new ones available. All your work is awesome!

Kelley: I seem to get that look from all my cats, and occasionally the dogs, too, pretty often! (Like the time I caught Henry, our bluetick hound, on TOP of the stove. He was, like, "what? I wasn't doing anything.")

Mary: thanks so much!

Sharon: Thanks, Sharon! (Do you by any chance know the folks at Cook, Yancey, et al? They were asking almost the very same questions about prints.)

If you send me your email address I'll be glad to give you a heads-up when I list something new.

Also, I've been getting a lot of inquiries about prints, and I'm looking into making them available very soon. I'll put info on my blog when I get all that in place.
