I love the simplicity of the frame with this picture. The horse portrait (Zinc) was for the same client who has had the portrait framed and will be taking it to her daughter next month. Her daughter lives in Australia where she is training to be a Vet, the horse belonged to her and is another memorial portrait. I'm hoping to see photos of the framed portrait once it is delivered and hung.
I heard from my friend Lynne (Catwoman) in Fuerteventura that one of the two feral cats I feed when out there has died. Its companion is very sad and lonely so just hope it pulls through as they are quite elderly I think. We think they are/were brother and sister. I never named them but we just called them 'The Lara Cats' as they lived in the garden of an empty villa named Lara Villa. When I'm in England, Lynne visits regularly to leave biscuits and water for them as they aren't tame enough to be rehomed, they come to call but are wary of humans.
The one we have been most concerned about is the one at the back here (the boy) because of that growth on his face, but it is the other one (the girl) that has passed away.
RIP little girl and I hope brother can adapt to being alone
I have been very busy with non-arty bits recently but have been sorting through my hundreds of ref. photos to shortlist a few which will be next on the drawing board. I'm going to concentrate on coloured pencil work for the next couple and hope to make a start on the first one by the weekend.
We're being treated to lunch at Whitstable Castle today so must go and make myself presentable ... seems to take longer to do that these days LOL. Its also getting harder to get David to be ready on time - he's always late for everything because he gets sidetracked too easily.
Yesterday we were late leaving to visit the mums as he couldn't find his trainers/shoes. He searched upstairs and downstairs getting more and more frantic so I had to join the search. I eventually spotted them on a shelf in his office. He'd intended to file away a folder of papers he'd been working on but picked up his shoes and filed them instead ... I ask you !!!!!!! ;-}
