Antique Ebonized Cabinet with Original Oil Painting Panels

More work on the 1920s antique china cabinet with the two black Bombay cat paintings.  Both paintings are finished now and I am ebonizing parts of the cabinet for a darker, more mysterious overall look.  There is a lovely piece of old birds-eye veneer along the top that I am not ebonizing.  So with that bit of brown left, I am picking out other brown parts to leave as well.  Should be finished ebonizing the rest tomorrow.

Antique 1920s Cabinet with Hand Painted Black Cat Panel - Original Oil Painting

Here is one panel of two that I am painting on this pretty 1920s antique china cabinet.  There will be a black cat on either side of the glass door to the cabinet.  This cabinet will be available at my antiques booth in June and will hold my skull collection.  I painted this from a photo of two Bombay cats with really huge eyes.
Monday I will paint the second panel.
