Queen Shiva

This is my beautiful cat, Shiva. She's a Burmese, with attitude. She does indeed think that she is the Queen! She loves the sun, and takes every opportunity to soak it up, and this is one of the few times that she liked to be outside. I'm pretty happy with this painting. I haven't had much luck at painting animals in oil in the past, but maybe I'm finally getting it. The scan doesn't really do it justice though, it shows the background as shiny and uneven, while I think the scan just picked up on directional brushstrokes. There's a little too much glare, too. Anyways, hope y'all like it.
