Painting:An old black and white cat looking ahead.

Shhh, sleeping cats.

Over the years I have often painted my cats.
I thought I’d post a few archive paintings of my much loved old moggies, (muses), in a variety of relaxed poses.
The last is a new arrival rescued with his sister, and settling in nicely.
