Like a Tiger *grrrrrrr*

So, after much angst and gnashing of teeth, I have finally finished my first animal oil painting! I couldn't post it here when I finished because I was giving it to my husband as a surprise for Christmas and I know he has sent this link to people...

I'm pretty damned happy with it. I am especially pleased with how the feet turned out given they were looking awfully like horrible blobs for a while there! It's 16"x20", and I've had it framed in a dark almost-black wood (which as it turns out is slightly warped so I need to take it to be redone).

Oh, and Jay's reaction? He was rapt :D
