A great tit painting. I’m thinking of calling it The Local Cafe. :-) Snowy weather but the birds come for their grub at the feeder and can do a bit of house shopping while they’re there, checking out the bird boxes for the spring season. :-)
This is an 8×8 inch acrylic painting on panel
I will be exhibition at the Feline Art Exhibition at the National Cat Centre in Sussex In April. This is one of the paintings going to the show.
The Society Of Feline Artists is holding a new feline art exhibition at Cats Protection in Sussex as part of Cats Protection’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. S.O.F.A. has always supported Cats Protection with yearly donations and the charity will benefit from each sale made at the show. So this is a great way of buying some art and helping cats at the same time.
The show will run from the 28th of April to the 7th of May 2017 at the National Cat Centre.

Here’s a new hare painting, Little Spring Hare. This one is off to the #twitterartexhibit TAE17 UK – a charity art auction to raise money for Molly Olly’s Wishes in Stratford upon Avon 1-19 April 2017.
Another exciting post. This is an international collaboration. I’ve been working on a painting of Burre, a gorgeous Burmese cat who lives in Finland. I’ve painted him as a star cat walking through the dark, starry Finnish night. Once he was finished last year he went off to his new home in Finland to hang on the wall.
But a photo of him went to Kapsch Cases in Croatia to be used on a new cello case for his owner’s cello. And here is a photo of the finished cello case with the model himself posing in front of it. :-)
Very exciting! Musician Greg Sover is using my crow painting ‘Coming In To Land’ on the back of his new album cover Songs Of A Renegade. I’m thrilled that he chose it, what do you think?

I’ve been working on a small Puma painting. I’m thinking of some large paintings of big cats but wanted to start with something a bit smaller with a good excuse to play with lots of colour. So a glorious golden cougar with a blue green background seemed like a great place to start. She is a very colourful girl, a 10×10 inch acrylic painting on a panel. Now I just have to decide on what colour frame to get for her.
I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.
A big red Maine Coon cat sitting in the sun. I do love painting big ginger fluffballs! This lad is full of colour with pinks, yellows and greens in his coat and teal whiskers.He is painted in watercolour and paint pens on 16×12 inch Fabriano paper.
He comes in a 20×16 inch single mount and a shabby chic frame. The frame is a box frame in wood, lightly painted white and distressed to create a shabby chic style. It’s has acrylic glass to make it safe to ship
A unique handmade pheasant brooch. A running pheasant with iridescent feathers of blue, green and pink on his chest, reds and gold up his tail and silver legs.
He is just over 3 inches long from beak to tail feathers.
He has a silver plated pin on the back and comes in a gift box.
A beautiful spotty bengal cat. He’s painted in watercolour with paint pens and some metallics too. After all, a bengal needs a touch of glitter in his coat. The photos don’t show it but some of the his fur has metallic copper watercolour in places and in certain light it gives a beautiful shimmer. He is painted on a sheet of 40x30cm Cornwall paper in watercolour and paint pens.
