What a beautiful portrait! I love the delicate colors in her face, the way you did her hair, and the linear elements, too. Kitty of course, looks so content. Great job Judy! Happy Birthday to Kate.

Judy,
Happy, happy birthday lovely Kate and lovely mom.
After watching her video on the TED link, I can see just how well you know the landscape of your daughter's face. And you've caught a twinkle in Kate's eyes! So joyful. Aren't we lucky?
What are the dimensions of this piece? Is that actual denim in her jeans?. Oh I wish I could touch it. (I have a terrible reputation as a "hands on" person.) tee hee

Thank you so much for the lovely comments.
The size of this whole piece (the photo is cropped) is about 12 "x15" and the jeans in the picture are cut from an old pair of Kate's jeans!
