Beautiful. We used to have a silver tabby (Taz) and a blue-grey tabby (Eddie). We had a blue-smoke Maine Coon (Bob). This made me think of them. Thank you. HUGS.

That is REALLY gorgeous…..of course the “model” for the artwork is a handsome ginger so that helps a lot (tee hee) but the whole effect is magnificent – like a REAL piece of art worthy of hanging on a wall ANYWHERE!

Love, Angel Sam and Ted
