.. whoa a whoa whoa yeah!! Pussy cat pussy cat I love you...yes I doo-ooo...you with y pussycat nose!
(Yes quite....I know it's probbly wrong but Gawd I love Tom Jones)
So anyroad, way back there at Christmas the lovely folks at our local Cats Protection were out in force with their stall and raffle for the Dickens Night festivities. One of the prizes up for grabs was a watercolour portrait of your pet by a local artist...(ahem)
So I thought you might like to meet the winners wonderful duo...so may I introduce..
Coco and Basil...awww
And for the painting...
Wot no embroidery?! I know, it just doesn't seem right! However I've got to hold fire on the needlework for a while longer as I have a commission for a people portrait and also a wee doggy who has just sadly passed away :(
I get quite stressed when it comes to portraits, especially pets and people; it's a precious someone/something in peoples lives and I always get a fear that I'm not going to capture them and end up disappointing the recipient. I get quite tense and Mr.Mimilove has to forciibly remove me from painting otherwise I'll over work it and fret even more
I'm hoping Coca and Basil's "mum" will like it...I shall be hiding behind the sofa til I know!
I'm having withdrawal symptoms so hoping to get back into the stitchy groove asap... I've got chickens in mind but also squirrels and racoons...be back soon I hope
Thank you for dropping by x:)
