Fine Art Friday

Our official royal portrait painter Denise Laurent has done it again. Äiti received a parcel, which has been eagerly awaited. Firstly she has produced a twitchy cold paw Christmas card, entitled 'Baby it's cold outside'. She has great talents to make Jura's Bottom of Disrespect into a work of art. The original of this painting was snapped up by the ninjas' breeder. 
And this one, 'Catch me if you can' shows a more summery scene which will be displayed here for perheeni to admire. Quite how Denise made any sense out of Äiti's blurred photos we will never know. And she has got a great sneaky girlcat angle as Jaava tries to paw swipe the back leg of her brother.
And Äiti just adores this next one. It was in a frame as quick as a flash and on the kitchen wall, opposite where she sits attempting to study. And I must admit this is a very attractive painting, even if it shows Aila-sisko. Her eyes are just glorious and the blue background sets her off very well. This was a complete surprise to Äiti - she wasn't expecting this in the parcel. We will be sending on some lovely Finnish food in thanks.

Why these are....are....I'm stumped for the word! Fabulous? Cattastic? Wondrous beyond imagining? Heck, we'd hang them up here and they're not even our kitties!! That last picture is unbelievable--It seems as though it MUST be a photograph! Kudos to the artist!

I am so lucky to have such amazing models to paint and such a generous photographer to let me use her work as my inspiration! There might be liquorice involved too. :-)

The bottom of disrespect has now gotten some respect and the little ninja's vitality is captured for eternity.
