Christeve the Cat with Theodore the Tiger and hummingbird – illustration for children’s book and posters.
The International Cat Association sponsored this poster which raised a lot of money for a new tiger’s area at the Philadelphia Zoo…There are so many more cats in my life, but I thought it would be fun to share a few with you today.
In my next life I would like to be a cat:)
Gorgeous work! So full of light.
Thank you. the cats bring a naturally beautiful light with them:)
Beautiful kitties, tigers and hummingbirds.

Allcats are different. I was particularly struck by blue-eyed Iccle.
Iccle is remarkable. She is completely deaf and is one of the ultimate survivors. I met her when I was painting for two summers in Brussels and recently saw here In SW France where she still survives. Her meow is very loud because of her deafness and she is lovely 🙂
I suppose she comes for her tea when she’s hungry, no point calling her.
That’s is true. When I was on the phone with my friend recently, I heard Iccle meowing in the background….she was coming for her food:)
Goodness, this was an absolute treat! It seems I’m not getting email notifications of your posts again! There must be a ghost in the machine!xxx

I am happy to hear this:)XXX
I love all of your cats and hope to see many more!
Thank you. I only paint the cats that I know…many of them studio cats, mine and other artists. 🙂
We have a huge stray cat in our new neighborhood. There’s apparently quite a bit of “wildlife” in the area, even though it’s residential. There’s a lot of open land, and according to our neighbor — a delightful 90-year-old whose lived on the corner for 50 years — there’s a place where raccoons, possums, and stray cats all congregate near a sewer drain. It’s also squirrel heaven here. There are literally dozens of them playing in the yards. The big cat stalks the squirrels and the birds, then takes the sun in front of one of our garages. I’ll have to get a picture of it.
Racoons, possums and stray cats…now that sounds like a fantastic sketching opportunity:)
Oh, and lots of birds! We don’t have magical hummingbirds, but we have lots of songbirds. I put birdseed out each morning and evening. My husband and I love to sit on the back patio and listen to all of the birds. We’re learning all their songs. Plus there are dozens of squirrels. Everywhere. One is so funny! All squirrels like to jump, but this fellow LOVES to jump — as high as he can. He’s so much fun to watch. I really do want to sketch and paint the birds and other wildlife.
You paint a lovely picture with your words…Nothing quite like sitting amongst nature and sketching:).
We have such a beautiful place now to sit and enjoy the early mornings and late afternoons. We’re very happy with our new home.
I also love cats, and your paintings of them are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them with us! 🙂
You are welcome…have a beautiful weekend. Janet :)X
