The end of an era

No, I'm not talking about the election!

I've called it - 'Hey, we're napping here' is officially done!

I'm not entirely happy with the blanket in the front, but it's achieved my goal of being there but being relatively subdued so as not to detract from the kitties.    It took a long time - and I won't be tackling another 14 x 22" piece in the near future - but it was worth it!

The piece is framed and will be hung as soon as I decide which venue it will fit best in!

And as a bonus - also finished is Cuppa!!  After my initial worry I was able to use some better pastels and some .. interesting techniques to rescue it.  I didn't always know what direction this one was headed, but I like the way it's turned out.  I had originally intended it to be a bit more abstract, but I guess I'm stuck somewhat on realism for the time being.  There are worse things!


Thanks for watching the process on Napping.  I'll post some more once the next things are under way!  If there's anything you've found interesting so far on my blog please leave a comment!

I can see why the blanket would be a challenge but I think you pulled it off. My eyes go straight to the cats and I explore their faces, their fur, then my eyes move around to the pillows behind them (I really enjoy the colours and the folds). The last place I go to is the foreground and by then I have thoroughly enjoyed the piece.

Absolutely beautiful! It makes me want to snuggle in and take a nap.

I remember seeing this in progress at WC, but then I never got the chance to see it finished there. It looks great! The pose, colors and textures makes the whole scene cozy and inviting. I think the blanket looks fine as is.
