We had to repair part of our fence recently & I had the workers save all the tops of the fence panels they were planning to throw away. They are the perfect "house-shaped" wood blocks great for paintings. I'm starting a series of cabins, cottages, holiday houses & all kinds of dwellings! Stay tuned!
I got an e-mail early this week from a very sweet gal who had a cat show up at her house during our snowstorm last week. The kitty wouldn't leave so she generously took it in & cared for it even though she already has 5 other cats. She knew she couldn't keep her, & knowing me & my foster experience through my Etsy Shop & Blog, she asked me for help, and sent along this picture :). How could I say "no" to that sweet face?
We met at my vet's building yesterday morning. She is the nicest woman & "Lizzy" is the sweetest kitty! She got an exam & vaccs & her tests came out negative (yay). The vet said she looked to be about a year old & quite healthy. Took her back in to be spayed this morning & all went well. She did have roundworms but was treated with a "single dose" med that should take care of those & any other parasites she may have.
Picking her up this afternoon & will be glad to have her safe in my "foster guest room" where she can rest & feel safe, warm & cozy.
Planning to foster her for a few more weeks & then hope to find her a new home or get her adopted out from the Humane Society. If anyone in KANSAS is looking for a gentle, loving, sweetheart of a kitty, I have the purrfect one here!
I am never ALONE when I'm working at the computer! As you can see, I have 2 furry helpers busy at tasks such as taking inventory of cabinets & testing boxes out for naps. You can't really see it, but Zoolou IS in a box. I've since gotten her a bigger one! :)
What would I do without them?
I have a new painting almost finished ~ my FIRST 2011 creation! Will post pics soon.
Sorry for my absence but I spent the first week of the New Year sick with the flu or a bad sinus infection or something! I'm just glad to finally be feeling better so I can get started on some fun new things in my studio!
Above is a collection of things that will soon turn into my first creations of the year!
Old vintage quilt fabric for Cat Dolls
The tops of wood fence boards for paintings
A sketch all ready for the canvas!
I had every intention of painting cool Haunted Houses for Halloween & Manger Scenes for Christmas on the house-shaped wood blocks but just ran out of time! Maybe they can be winter log cabins or spring cottages?
Hi! I'm Jill~folk artist & cat lover! I have a little home studio here in Wichita, KS where I create my cat paintings to list on ebay & make all kinds of cat themed goodies for my Etsy Shop. I also foster kitties for our Humane Society & volunteer at the shelter. Most of the proceeds from my art go towards donations to cat shelters & helping other strays that come my way. I live here with my hubby, 3 kids, 2 cats & a huge dog! I'm so glad you stopped by! meow
