I had to lock the kitty in the bedroom for half an hour, but I finally finished the marble painting! I am pleased with the reflections, and with a suggestion from hubby, I added an extra stripe of yellow to brighten it up. I can't say I enjoyed starting the painting with a black base...it was really difficult to photograph it afterwards! It was interesting, however, and I plan on trying some other colors to tint the canvas with. The kitty was excited to get the marble afterwards...she chased it for hours!
