Photos of recent artwork and of the cats

Since I do take 2 art classes --a drawing and a 'nature' watercolor class, I do try and have fun with this hobby and this spring I pledge to be a better student and work on homework...LOL. My watercolor class is having an exhibition at the Garden center building and so I have to really come up with 2 paintings by the May 8 receiving date!

Hi Emmy,

Your pictures are always so beautiful. And the VT100 scenes are lovely. All the beauty and none of the sweat, pain or lightening!

And I love the pictures of your cats...but now I am a bit confused. Do you have 3 cats (Tarzan, Lydia and Softy). I think Softy has not been pictured on your blog before (or else I mistook him/her for Lydia or Tarzan). Is he/she a new addition or just shy or skittish? Do you have more than 3 cats?

Tammy --I took out the VT 100 scenes as I don't like them --reminds me of the heat and humidity -ha. Better stick to spring motifs. I have 3 cats ! I had 5 but my 2 older cats died last year (ages 16 and 17)--:(
Softy is a big sweetheart but he doesn't like to be picked up. I trapped him 7 years ago --had been feeding him and he was a stray. He loves to sit with me while I am on the computer and purrs loudly...he loves to be scratched!! The cats all get along well!! Oh, I'll post some cat paintings!
