I've been working on the pears, hopefully tonight, it'll be finished and I'll post it.  Then I'm going to paint two paintings of a Canadian flag, cut them into strips and weave them together.  I'm hoping that when it's done, it'll look as good as Suzy's do here

AND, we've got two cats now!  Baby kittens that we brought home a week ago.  They've been to the Vet's for checkups, shots and Advantage and he says they're about ten weeks old (eleven now). 

Mine is the gray male and since I loved Scotland so much when I was there last April, I call mine Scotland - Scottie for short.  The black female is Zach's and he calls her Spinner.  Scottie is stood in a little bed I made for them out of a plastic bowl with rounded lips and an old worn-out pair of heavy fleece sleep pants.  They love it!  There's a padded pillow underneath so it's nice and soft.  I was planning on making it out of a basket but when I was in the Loonie store, I saw this and thought how much smoother it was than a basket.  I'm still going to do the basket one, I think, as well as this.  They both fit in right now, but not for long.

Two little crazy kitties to love!! They are sooo adorable at this stage and hope they don't get into too much mischief - just enough to keep you busy :) I like that flag and think your version of the Canadian flag will be very cool, too.

Hi Deb,
You got me on this one. I've been hooked on cats since before I even had one. Or I should have said, since the kitten chose us. They do seem to tolerate us as equals, perhaps even like us, but I've always felt one can never "own" a cat.
Congratulations and enjoy them.

Hi Deb,
Merry Christmas! Looking forward to seeing more of your art in the new year.
I hope the kittens aren't taking too much of your time as the world loves your art.
Best Wishes for a wonderful New Year!

Deb, those kitties are probably grown by now - what has 2011 in store for you? Just checking in to see what you're up to lately.

Hi Debra,
Your kittens are so sweet. Just wanted to say, I love your Art Work. I don't paint in water colors, I use oils.
Keep up the beautiful work.

Thanks all very much for commenting and visiting. I've been going through such a rut these past months, I haven't even been able to come in here to the blog. So, seeing all these comments is very uplifting. :-)

Rhonda, I loved that flag the very first time I saw it and every time since.

Gary, you're so right - you can't own a cat. Just like you can't train them. They train you.

Kathryn, thanks!

Hi Ann, thanks for always checking up on me. I'm hoping to fix that part about missing my work. I'm hoping to make you start thinking that I do nothing but paint, paint, paint.

Christmas wishes, too. I am seriously BAD in the blogging department, aren't I? That's fixed as of this minute.

Hi Sherry, thanks for visiting! I started in oils and love them very much. I love your work, too. That TCM looks really interesting.
