Em hotep! Here are a few things I tracked down quickly:

Sundry pieces from the Metropolitan Museum in New York:!?q=Bastet&perPage=20&searchField=All&showOnly=withImage&sortBy=Relevance&offset=0&pageSize=0

Online copy of Naville's Bubastis (if you scroll all the way to the end, there are some Bast drawings in among the other reproductions of temple art):

Photo from Tell Basta (about half way down):

You might have better success if you go to specific museums' websites and search there.

Also, the vast majority of ancient Bast images I've found are votive items like amulets, statues, and stelae; I haven't seen much in the way of paintings. So if you're looking for that in particular, it's going to be harder.

I think most of us would agree that Bast is very solar/flame oriented. ^_^

(I wonder if the Greeks perceived Her differently because by that late period, She was more often associated with cats, whereas She originated as a lion.)

Em hotep, Capra! From what I've seen, it symbolizes dawn/life/renewal, so as the life-giving (not wrathful) aspect of the sun, you could certainly interpret it as the pacified Eye of Ra. That's an interesting take on it! The scarab is also associated with the heart (for instance, with the funerary heart scarab), so you could also draw a parallel to Bast's name of Mistress of Joy. (The word for "joy" in Ancient Egyptian literally translates as "widening of the heart.")

The famous Gayer-Anderson cat shows two examples of scarabs, plus an udjat amulet. She also has ma'at feathers on her ears! She's a favorite of mine. ^_^ (Click on "more views" to see her from every angle.)
