Art in Progress

One way I cope with missing my cats
when I'm away from home is to draw
and paint them. They are in my
heart and come through my art!

Hi Nan, great to see some of your paintings - you use watercolour, don't you? I must dig mine out and have a go, but I find them really terrifying! I'm not a natural painter, unlike you! You are brilliant - do you sketch the rough out first, then apply the paint? Always like to know how artists 'construct' their work (nosy!)

lovely paintings as always, Nan! Polly looks a lot like the famous Chessie kitten as she snoozes. I hope you'll get to go home to Maine this weekend!

Unbelievable! All I can draw is stick people & stick cats.

I bet you are missing them. I enjoyed seeing your paintings.

Are you heading home this week?

Hi everyone!
I'm home! Oh, it's so wonderful to be reunited with my kitties! We have our own communication that goes so deep with each one and we just picked up as though I was never away. My sister gave me a cat tent which I will post soon. Brody is the first to try it out and he loved it!
I have so much to do to organize my studio. D was working on it while I was away trying to finish some of the things that have been waiting for years ( like some window trim and other things)! In order to work he had to move my stuff around and as it was it was very crowded and now it is a total mess. More soon in a new post!
