You might remember this red chair from awhile ago. I've painted a black Maxine-type cat onto the chair that the chair won't be so lonely!  It also works out that this fits into the Lane Gallery's Reigning Cats and Dogs exhibit (that benefits the Oregon Humane Society).... opening May 3, 2013.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Kitty TeeVee, oil on 6x6 canvas panel (framed)

Bonjour ma chère Céleste,
Vos nuances de rouges sont très très beaux... Un fauteuil qui en impose et le choix de ce charmant minou est de bon goût! Il peut en toute quiétude guetter à travers la fenêtre.
Une très jolie composition... Une peinture qui devrait faire des heureux.
Gros bisous

Such a great image, Celeste. It's not that easy to be so expressive. I want to sit in that chair with that kitty. That's good imagine there.

A very nice composition ... A painting should be happy.

(thanks, Martine!)

I can see the exhibit of "Cat in Chairs "in the future
This one cat has appeared in many works, even more than your own cats

Hi Celeste!
"So good! So good!"
Love that chair! The addition of the cat is wonderful. I am imagining the little critter leaving at any minute!
Nice! Nice! Nice!
