Norwegian Forest Kitten

Meet Ginger, a Norwegian Forest Cat... kitten actually.  I had never heard of them either, she is quite different looking, has a great "leonine" profile....  you'll likely see her again on this blog.  She's very inquisitive and bold, don't know if that's just her or if it's typical of the breed, either way she definitely has her human family in training.  These small paintings (5"x7") are great for testing design.  I initially thought the large dark block in the background would be too much, but with that direct stare, I think the cat's face balances the composition nicely.  I liked how her color and the chair colors work together,  although it does look like Ginger, the best part about the painting is the chair I think :)
