good to see you are back Karen blogging:) and with such a beauty: i love how you have unified the painting with colours in the background on the subject... and the can feel the softness of the fur! i love it... now this response is all from a person who has an aversion to cats;)

Beautiful kitty! I love the colors you used in the white. She looks so alive! An amazing piece.

I'm so glad to see you posted again. I am in love your style! This is another beautiful painting. Love the title, too!

Thank you everyone!
Rahina, thanks so much ... high praise indeed from a non-cat-lover & fellow sister artist whose work I admire!
Susan: Thank you! This one was fun because of 2 light sources: one window behind Ray and another one with the light coming in from the right, making for lots of reflected color.
Virginia: Thanks! After taking a few months off to work on home projects, it's good to be back to working on my art daily. I'm glad you like the title; it just came to me at the last minute, right before I posted the painting.
