The Owl and the Pussy Cat (no boat in sight)

 Good morning friends...

Did you have a good weekend? The rain held off a little here which was good as we travelled to Derbyshire to visit DH's eldest son, DIL and granddaughter. They moved house this year and live in a quaint little village and their daughter is gorgeous! We really enjoyed our visit...

August has been a complete wash out here with more rain than we deserve and I'm grateful for my hobbies... I couldn't imagine not having something to do. Today I have 2 more painting for you 

The owl...


I saw a photograph of an owl peeking around a wall and that was my inspiration...This of course is only a youngster and a little shy... Took me quite awhile to do this and I'm hoping he looks like an owl to you


We often hear the owls at night in our trees  but I've never yet seen one...

The pussy cat...

I had a grey cat when I was little and I got 2 kittens for my son when he was little, Lucy who was also grey and her sister Lisa who was all black. We had them for 16 years and Lucy was a real character who was very attached to both our GSD's... One evening Lucy went out in the garden and we never saw her again. We searched for weeks, posted flyers etc., but to no avail. It was the not knowing that haunted us. 

This is how I remember her, sitting watching the birds but never able to catch one thank goodness.

Funny, never did I think that one day I would be able to paint her

Thanks so much for your visit and for all your wonderful messages regarding Ross

Have a wonderful week
