You should definitely be happy about this, so sweet and well done, love this painting ! I have a photo that I shot of a hedgehog that was very similar to this kitten...just peeping through the leaves :-)
Thanks so much Jane! Was the hedgehog in your garden?And was it in Italy or Denmark? I always think of England when I think of hedgehogs! They are such gorgeous little creatures!
This is wonderful. It tells a good story, and is beautifully composed. I hope we can see some of your writing soon too. The book by your siser looks really interesting!
Thanks so much Katherine! I still have a long way to go with the book I am writing but I'm enjoying the journey. I'm glad you like the look of my sister's book - I think she's done a great job with it.I love what you did with your latest commission Katherine - you are amazing!
Hi Wendy, what a lovely painting! You painted the facial expression of the cat very well. It's obvious he's spotted something, maybe a bird. The eyes are great! Have a nice Sunday and good luck with your writing!
Thanks Hilje! I think he'd spotted us! My daughter and I went to say hello when we saw him in the garden. I'd only met him once before! I'm glad you mentioned the eyes, I was very happy with how they turned out. I love your latest painting!!
So cute :) I have a cat that looks just like this one, and a picture of him doing the same pose :) very impressive!!
Thanks so much Lynette! I love tortoiseshell cats - we used to have one that looked like this when I was a child.
Wonderful pet portrait. You really captured that classic cat pose. Enjoying all your recent posts!
Thanks Robin! I've been enjoying all your recent posts too! I particularly love your orange segments!
"Meow Wow!" Great work Wendy! Looks like this cart has spotted its prey! Good luck with your writing! This painting is a winner!I have a "hippy poster" photo done by a famous Aussie to post soon. I saw it a the Boston MFA last week!G'Day Mate!Michael
G'day Michael, thanks so much!!I'm looking forward to seeing the hippy poster. I don't know who the famous Aussie could be!? Glad to hear you were visiting the museum again! Puts me to shame - I should make the effort to visit our own art gallery - haven't been in years!I hope you are in the throes of a new ocean painting as I write!!Your art Cobber,Wendy
G'Day! G'Day! G'Day Mate!Hello Wendy!I have been on holiday. A cruise in the Western Caribbean. No internet access. Did a bit of painting. Mostly celebrating Boston Red Sox World Series win! So very happy! Anyway I will soon be posting some photos from the trip and some watercolors. I also will be posting the Australian Hippy Poster. (Oh, on the trip, stopped at Curacao to see some Emus on an Ostrich farm. Learned the Emus were from Australia! Of course I thought of you buddy, cobber!Glad to be back on line! Now to check out your latest art work!
Captured the moment beautifully, Wendy. Have a productive week writing and painting. The two arts go well together.
Thanks very much Diane! Yes, they do go well together. I'm enjoying your blog so much - you are very prolific!
thank's for your information and i like yoru post
Thanks so much for visiting!!
Gorgeous painting. You have captured the kitty beautifully but also the light and shade areas add lots of interest too. Just wondering what this kitty has spotted. :-)
Thanks Laura! I'm pretty sure the cat was looking at my daughter when I took the shot. Although, it certainly looks like he's just spotted lunch!
This painting is delightful, Wendy! You have captured the gestural quality of the cat beautifully and I love the light and color harmony. It seems like you are managing your time well to fit in painting time too!
Thanks for your lovely comments Celia! I could certainly be managing my time far better than I do, but I'm very pleased to be fitting in some painting and some writing each week at the moment.
LOVE the cat!
Great composition and beautifully painted! Congratulations on the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge !!!
Thanks so much Helen! Nice to have you back!
