Time spent with cats is never wasted……

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…..

Given that it is Friday….time to hang loose like a cat….



Have a wonderful weekend….
