Pick Me...

Here is one of the Gazillions of kittens that find new safe homes through the Safe Haven for Cats no-kill cat shelter in Raleigh NC. I take many shots of these cuties using my cell phone camera and sometimes there is a shot that just screams ' PAINT ME'. I added the hand and changed darkened the color of the kitten from light grey to tuxedo dark. I am already starting to think of the 2010 Tuxedo Cat Ball and trying to come up with an image worth of this Fundraising Campaign.

I think you found a likely candidate. Very beautiful job on this little cutie!

I think this is an awesome piece for your submission. Who doesn't love a wee little playful kitten! Your work is just simply wonderful. Would that I could paint anyone of my kitties half as well!
