This is my official third birthday portrait. It was a total surprise when Denise gave it to Äiti, while she was visiting the Society of Feline Artists show in London in 2011.
And he's upside down again - this is Mirsku's usual state.And here is an enchanting depiction of Rilli-ukko, a memorial portrait which was a most touching gift to Äiti, April 2012.
And the burmese butterballs get everywhere. This picture was painted in August 2012 - it's called 'Catch me if you can'. A magnificent title and the picture really shows how fast these two thundercats can be.
Denise also painted our very own Jura, trudging across the catio in the deep, cold snow drifts. She has turned this beautiful painting into a Christmas card.
And here is Aila. This is stunning - her eyes are just glowing, and her mouth is ever so slightly open in a most flirty way.
Our other commissioned artist is Carolyn-täti and we are waiting for Äiti to get her rear in gear to photograph the amazing pictures that have been adorning our walls.
Here Stran-veli is blissed out on kissanminttu. This was before he had his eye operation.
And Aila-sisko as a little kitten. Look how the background spells 'trouble' and 'mischief'.
And for some reason there's another painting of Mirsku! Äiti says he is a very paintable cat.
And here are Harris and Lewis, done by Carolyn-täti.
And we do have a really interesting print on the wall, from a few years ago. This was done by a company called You Are Art in the UK, and is made from hundreds of Äiti's photos all mosaicked together into Stran's face. You have to be a long way from it to get the best effect to see Stran, but up close you can see loads of different shots.
