Half Asleep

This is a 10 x 10 in. square painting of my cat, Juliet, resting on a kitchen chair. She's the subject of quite of few of my paintings because she loves to model ;). This was a fun painting because I enjoy painting her and it came together pretty easily. Also, using some pre-mixed grays and yellows really helped in the mixing department. Part of the top and bottom are cut off because of my scanner. Click here to bid.
