Thank you

It is always a relief when I hand over a commission and the reaction is so positive :) 
Thank you Helen, it is lovely to see your photo of Reggie with the rest of his family.

Right best get on, got horses to finish, dogs to start, foxes to complete!

Horsing about

After being surrounded by cats, returning to horses is a welcome change ...
Just at the layering up the base colours stage
before 'sculpting' the face
in paint.
I love what I do!

If you are interested in a commission,
just contact me and we can chat about it :)

Tuxedo and Kilters ready

Today I parcel up two paintings.
Both are cats.
Both black and white.
Respendent in their Tuxedos
Well they are those most wonderful mustaches 
they sport on their furry top lips 
It will be strange not having these two on my desk,
I have been surrounded by cats the last couple of weeks,
oh well, 
will be more than content with my little studio assistant ....

Have fur filled Monday - I know I will be :)

Something about horses

I worked with a girl who said 

that if you could bottle and sell the scent of a sweaty horse, 
your would be set up for life...

I know exactly what she means - 

even now as I type this I can 'mentally enhale the distinctive essence of horses' .....

What a fine mustache you have!

What's on my desk today?

This beautifully whiskered cat 
Still a way to go,
so best
'get to it
She needs to get back to her owner >^.^<
