Retrospect, part 3


The Cats of November

Life has unexpected twists and turns. I've experienced a few of those this fall, one of which was the loss of our family cat. We found out about his illness and had to make the hard decision to put him down on a cold, gray, drizzly day this fall. But in memory of his presence in our home for 10 years, I did a set of fun and quirky water color paintings. These were then made into note cards.

Being able to process life in a visual way is part of what makes being an artist so interesting! I would never have foreseen these 4 paintings, they are not in my typical style of artistic expression. But they have been enjoyed by many and it has been a way to turn a sad event into one that has brought good.

These cards are very special. I like the design and the colors and the style, everything. I think it is because you are using your heart.

Helen, this is very nice, if I want to pick a favorite one, this is the one. BTW once I am here, I know it will be hard to blog during Christmas days, so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, all the best. Anna :)
