Enjoy the day.
Last Friday, I featured Jack Russells….today cats.
I am an animal lover, but have to admit that there is nothing quite like the love of a cat. The following cats have all played a part in my life…….
Sun Spot – watercolour – Petuli
Christeve the Cat who came to me during a violent storm in the Magical Town of Crickadoon on Christmas Eve – 1996.

I met this little calico cat when painting in Conca dei Marini on the Amalfi Coast. She visited me every day…..
Detail from large oil painting…..
Tushy and Mushy were my favourite studio cats. Brother and sister, they came to me via a student in the United States…..when just six weeks old.
Given that it is Friday….time to hang loose like a cat….
Have a wonderful weekend….
This post is for cat lovers and those who enjoy playing with watercolour.
My model is Fizzy who recently departed this world for further feline adventures:)
