Thank you!!! That is a compliment coming from one who appreciates Neko like yourself =)

It was an unusual piece for me since I didn't use any black paint in it at all - for the darker hues I just used some Phthalo Blue straight out of the tube. I think this might be the only piece I've done (in years at least) without black as the darkest hue. When I was tweaking the scanned images in Photoshop I realised I couldn't set the levels as usual since I didn't have a natural black!

the piece works, as the light is very blue and the light in the north is sorta like that, in the snow ;-)

and the maneki neko is cute :-)

Anytime! Just let me know if I'm logged invisible again - I'm technically on Yahoo whenever my cam is on (so, all the time basically) and it just takes me a second to turn invisible on and off =)

All I have to say is, I want to see more animals from you! ESPECIALLY "fantasy" ones like the kitty =) They bring such an interesting energy to the over all piece. REALLY awesome! I'm currently the highest bidder on two of them, but that will last about 2 seconds, lol ;)

Ah!!! I love the kitty! My family members in Hong Kong have those statues ALL over the place in their apartments! I'm not sure what the Chinese name for them is though, my dad says they are "good luck or fortune cats" ^_^ I love the other two pieces too, but the cat is just sooo adorable!

Hehe, since I started playing Dark Age of Camelot again I was worried that it would cut into my painting time. I think I overcompensated - I've been up extra late painting long hours, lol.

That's great if you can do that. I seem to get too tired late at night to paint and just end up sitting on the couch. I really wish I could stay up later and paint like that. Maybe I should start fixing myself a big cup of coffee around 9 at night? That's an idea ;) I may have to try that!
