I guess I'm feeling a bit nostalgic as I think about leaving my house, the place we've called home for the last 20years. A great many animals have shared this space with us and when I think about why I paint and create art, I guess a lot of it has to do with the things I'm surrounded by. The lovely countryside, woodlands our horses and of course my children who are now grown into young adults. Ultimately though, there have been an awful lot of animals!!!
(I appologise now for this lengthy post!)
Long before we moved here we had Max (below) and Pouncey (I can't find pictures of him on my computer) then along came Arnold below.
Then along came the wave of kittens. Cottons kittens were just too wonderful to even consider parting with. I was very foolish to think I'd be able to sell any!!!
So what now??? Who knows what the road ahead will bring, but I know one thing is certain, my animals will be with me and probably a load more besides :D
