    I tried so hard to resist this photograph because of its cuteness factor.  A cute little girl, a cute little kitten.....gee whiz.

    But I just had to succumb and while it might have something to do with the fact that I love animals and especially kittens--I mean just look at that little roly poly watching his young mistress paint---it has more to do with the light and the girl being absorbed in her painting to the point that the kitten is incidental.  I could see this pair decades from now doing the same things but much older....old friends.  Something about light is so emotional, too, so powerful in creating a mood or setting the scene and the light here is a key player for me.  Without the light, it would not have the same power.  It's a quiet, lovely, peaceful moment in their lives, two young friends sharing a moment and being together as they probably love to be.

    @Maggie Steber  I am really glad that you couldn't resist because your comment made my evening :).

    I am so glad that the photo transmits the feeling of that moment, similar with what I felt. This is a photo done in one summer morning of my daughter painting ( she loves to paint and draw) and our small ( then) cat. ... Now both are bigger, more independent but from time to time our cat still watches my daughter paint. They are best friends and my daughter loves her so much.

    Thank you so very much for your feedback!

    @Maggie Steber  Agreed. The contrasts of light and shadow, mutual attentiveness to the task at hand, along with the simplicity of the whole scene adds to the emotion and power of this image. Beautiful indeed!
