How much is that kitty in the window?

Le chat dans la fenĂȘtre
8" x 10"
Oil with a palette knife on board

There was something about the reference photo I was using for this painting that looked French to me. For my blog readers that know French (Martine-Alison, Tony, Kim) you can tell me if google translated the title correctly from The Cat In The Window.

I started this painting a few months ago and was never happy with how the curtains came out. Very difficult to get that feel of sheer doile, laceyness with a palette knife. I ended up painting a light color on top of the dark color and then scraping some away to get the effect I wanted.

Ann, I'm impressed. The depth in this painting is great. Well done!

(Careful. You're en route to becoming a crazy cat lady of painting! :P )

Great painting! My French is soooo rusty, but that seems right to me!

The title translates indeed to "the cat in the window," dear Ann. I think this just might be a new favorite. There is something homey, so lovely about this piece. I think it is gorgeous! Ooh la la!!

Love, love, love this painting! I think your French is correct, too.

And the French seems correct to me! Great work, as always, Annie!!
