I have been working on a series of paintings based on the antics of my cat Ambrose aka Bro. The first painting (below) I did ages ago. Bro like all male cats likes to wander, and I imagined that perhaps he was doing the big OE. (Overseas experience that is a rite of passage for many young kiwis and Aussies.) Last week it rained a lot and the garden was under water. One day I looked out the window and there was Bro with the cat from a couple of houses away (they pretend they don’t like each other!). They were sitting in about 3 inches of water patting at the drowning plants! It was so funny.
We are lead to believe that cats don't like water, er umm somebody didn’t tell these two! As labels, set patterns of behaviour are limiting. If cats want to surf, why not. So, here is Prince Ambrose in Hawaii surfing with a mate!
As always on a Friday I am linking the above with Eva and Kirsten at Paint Party Friday.
For December’s Mix It Monthly hosted by Conny of PiaRom Art Blog fame my entry is below, the prompt colours are red, green and yellow and the subject owls. I had to enter because I adore owls. So out came my stash of watercolour scraps and in no time I had collage this journal page.
