This little kitten has discovered that the small flower bed fence is just a little too high for him. He has just now gotten himself stuck. The little mouse is safe (for now) and taunts him from behind the railing. “Na Na Na you can’t ketch me!” the mouse cries. This is all very embarrassing for the kitten. He vows to get even in a few weeks when he is big enough to scale the fence barrier.

A young Persian cat is attracted to a very unusual blue butterfly. Maybe this is because the butterfly is the same color as his beautiful blue eyes.

I had started this one a while ago and forgot about it. I liked the loose style of the first painting session so I tried to keep that looseness throughout the finished painting.

I have had problems posting lately. I've been having a lot of trouble with my computer and lost my program that I use to scan in and re-size my photos. I've got that program back now (cross fingers), however other things are still acting weird. I will continue on a day to day basis seeing how it goes.
