A Pair of Elephants

I haven't been posting or painting as much as I wanted to, I have an excuse though. About a month after we lost Pisho, a kitten turned up in our garden. She was starving and cold, it did not take long for her to settle into our home, but our older cat was not very happy!! She retreated to our bedroom and refused to come out, and then she became very ill after catching a virus from the kitten. It took two weeks of feeding her by syringe, day and night care to bring her back to good health. I was so afraid of losing another cat so soon after Pisho. Only in the last few days Tibby ( we all decided that  the name Toni did not suit her) has started eating downstairs and reclaiming her home as her own. The kitten is an absolute bundle of energy and is doing what kittens do. I did try to rehome her, but that didn't happen and I just could not leave her at an animal shelter, we had all bonded with her. Now, fingers crossed the worst is over and hopefully Tibby has a new friend. We haven't decided on a name, any suggestions?

The Best Days

I agree with this quote, the days I paint are the best days and nothing remotely to do with work.

Peacock

I've long had a fascination for peacocks. I painted a peacock in my art class at school and my teacher Mr Thompson hung it by his desk for a whole year, one of my proudest moments.

Prawn

I've been busy painting walls this past week. Its that time of year when its good to de clutter and make room for life. I painted the walls a peach colour this time last year, it seemed like a good idea at the time, but I'm so relieved to change it back to duck egg blue, of the palest variety.

I've been listening to The Spinners  I'll Be Around, love that voice, their style!!!
