Thank you, Sonia. I love cats (as if that wasn't obvious !!), and am enjoying trying to paint them. They are all so different, and cute. Take care, Meow

Thank you, Greeneyes ... what a compliment !! Most of the painting (excepting the coasters) are all done from a pattern ... you trace on the picture, and colour it in, basically (although using different brushes and strokes and techniques). I guess you have to learn all the different techniques !! The ceramic painting was basically the same, just painting over the precast ceramic.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at it all.
Take care, Meow

It's so beautiful! The cat is ssoooo realistic, as if he sticks his head out of the wall. I like it!

Marina ... thank you so much. I'm hoping the next 3 I do look just as good. Thank you for visiting my blog, too. I will drop by and visit yours, too.

you are very talented!! are you naturally talented or have you hade training??

Aunt Josefina ... thank you so much. The only training I've had is the various classes I've attended over the years ... nothing formal, though. Most of my painting is sort of like colouring in between the lines (the decorative painting has patterns, where you just use different brush strokes to get the look you want) ... I really want to learn from scratch ... that is my aim. Although, the cat coasters are basically from scratch, all I have is a head outline, and a photo.
Thanks again, take care, Meow
