This delightful kitten was given to an elderly friend of mine, Dorothy by her concerned granddaughter. Dorothy had been very poorly but Kitty Kat and her owner bonded and they have helped one another to grow stronger. We see our pets as friends and some researchers have suggested it is our need to take care of another living breathing thing. An ingrained need to nurture!
I have not been taught to paint animals but maybe my natural love of all creatures great and small helps me depict them. Ella, a dear horse adored by her owner Lucy, one of my granddaughters, was my first nervous attempt. I was very pleased with the result which spurred me on to paint my own cat Maisie and other people’s pets.
