Two minis

Two ACEO-sized (i.e. 2.5 x 3.5 inch, or 64 x 89 mm) ones:

Both acrylic on board. And in both, the camera washed out the colours to a significant extent. I have never been able to work out how to prevent that from happening, or how to fully fix it afterward.

Cats and Containers

I now and then indulge in photography. My humble point-and-shoot puts limitations on what I can achieve (not to mention my even more humble talents), but it's fun and often useful for reference.

Expressionist Cat

Expressionist Cat doesn't like you. If it makes you feel any better, she doesn't like anyone else either.

Acrylic on canvas board, 10 x 15 cm.

Two new ones

Both acrylic on board, 20 x 25 cm.

The first is not entirely a success, I think. I initially got the composition and colour all wrong and then tried to do a salvage job on it, and perhaps I shouldn't have bothered, On the other hand, some people apparently like it:

This one worked out better, I think:

Nowadays, the ginger cat often makes its way into my pictures. To some extent, it has a certain personal symbolism for me, but I also just like cats as subject matter, and the ginger coloration often fits in with my colour scheme...

Lucy and the sky with stars

Among my most vivid childhood memories is lying in bed and looking out the window at the stars, often with the aid of a pair of binoculars. We did not have a TV in those days; I don't think I missed much.

Acrylic on board, 420 x 297 mm - a.k.a. size A3. Depending on which country you find yourself in!
