How long did this take? It kind of looks like the cat in the painting is having trouble sitting still.

That dress reminds of so much of something you might see in a Bronzino portrait and those hands are fantastic!  And kudos on using tempera, the patience of using a medium like that is really impressive.

Thank you very much! This work and the dress for it was inspired by my favorite artists: Holbein, Durer and Cranach the Elder.

The influence is unmistakable, though I'm surprised not to see Botticelli or Bronzino on that list, I can really see their portraits at play here too.
