Who can resist these eyes? This is a reproduction of my original color pencil painting created in 2007 on drafting film of ’"Blink" a beautiful cat owned by a fellow artist.

“Blink” was placed Second in the Painting – Drawing Any Subject category at the 2008 Canning Show (First Place was awarded to my colour pencil painting “We Three Kings II – Lion” and Third to “Noble” my German Shepherd Dog in charcoal (yes I was very pleased with this Hat Trick!).
