UPDATE:  Our friend KWillow, a lady of fine family, good breeding, and one to whom the Muses call, hath given Riley and Moondoggie the gift of a good and thorough Rembrandting:
Study in Orange and Purple

Wow! I love it! Literally suitable for framing. Also, suitable as desktop background, too.

Supposed to be Orange & Purple.

Sorry about that -- I get nervous around high culture. Fixed now.

Alway, Riley is very full of herself now and is swaggering around, claiming she posed nude for Vermeer and invented Gin, all in the same afternoon.

Better a Rembrandting than a Peter Maxing.

Those kitties, and their high culture, are very, very nice. A tour de force, in fact. Wait'll they get a load of this down in the research library of the Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague.

They've let "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and a bunch of their other Dutch Master paintings come here to the wild barrens on tour, but why not send them a printout of this, Scott, to make them feel better until their stuff comes back to them?

The Old Master's use of brushstrokes to highlight light on the orange cat never ceases to amaze one.
Truly, an outstanding example of his portraiture.Thank you, K.

Shouldn't that be Portrait In Ass?
