I feel like I’m forever playing catch up at the moment. The only problem is that I’m finding it hard to get motivated too. Think it must be the sudden warm weather. That, and the room I work in gets ridiculously warm from the early morning sun. I hate the heat. On the plus side, it has inspired some rather Summery cats in striped shirts!
Meet Blaze and Henry! Blaze is the tuxedo kitty wearing the green & white striped shirt. Henry is the grey tabby wearing the yellow-orange & white striped shirt. When I’m struggling with new ideas, or a current painting I’m working on, I like to go back to basics. I find that painting cat portraits (or other animals) helps. Nothing fancy. Just a cat, a plain coloured background, and not much else.
Cats in Striped Shirts are available from Folksy
Henry and Blaze are both available to buy from my Folksy store.
