A few years ago during our travels, we got a stuffed cat to represent our cat, Mookie (inspiration for the name of this blog, and "artistic" inspiration), so he could travel with us (ok, so it was for us, not him; we missed him). Even though Mookie's no longer with us, we decided to bring the stuffed cat with us this year when we traveled to Southern Spain. This was our first vacation since he died; it's been about a year now. Here's some of the pictures of his time there...
1 August 2012 - Washington Park, Denver, CO
5" x 7", acrylic on paper
This is a redux of a painting I did back on 21 September 2012 (posted 25 October 2011), a much smaller version.
From now on the number of paintings I have to post begins to dwindle. I still have some larger ones I need to get photos of from I think June, but since the beginning of August I've been seriously distracted by our puppy, Nigel, who joined our household then.
Lately I've been doing some small gouache paintings, with mixed results, which will eventually get posted. I have to say I prefer the properties of acrylics, but, well, Nigel trumps even them.
The break in posting last month was due to our vacation in gorgeous, sunny Andalusia (Southern Spain). We stayed in Málaga and took some day trips to Seville and Granada. Eventually I hope to get to painting views from that trip...
