Kittens have been living in my studio for some time. Anyone with kittens will know that this makes working difficult. Anyone who has any contact at all with Bengal kittens will know just how hard. When they first arrived we made a painting together and auctioned it for The Snow Leopard Trust. At the last minute a bid was placed but in the wrong place, so I said to the bidder that if they were still interested I would work on another piece with the kittens and they could have first call on that one. So, today we made another piece between us and the Snow Leopard Trust has another donation heading its way.
The kittens and I are hoping to do an ink painting a month, for different charities, so keep an eye on the blog for further work.

Kitten inspects work to make sure the likeness is good and decides I need more help!
Tomorrow I need to begin serious settling down to work as I am now feeling much better and having been ill for a month am seriously behind with hare book. Easing myself back in to painting with a bear picture.
Mary Fedden’s Motley cat is watching the proceedings from the wall above my desk and thinking that the cats need to be drawn as well as painted. And I think as a mark of respect for Mary, who was a fine painter of cats, the next collaborative kitten painting will include a butterfly.
And soon I think it will be time to take the kittens for a walk.
