The Yellow Cat Painting

What the garden whispered to me on a yellow summers day ...

A painting of my little feline friend, venturing out into the garden on a summers day. Light dappling through leaves and branches, flowers exhaling scent, petals falling down from the trees, berries glowing un the shades of rose bushes.
Tiny insects dancing in a sunny haze, a bird  singing somewhere high up. Maybe not to high, maybe aware of velvety paws approaching over an emerald lawn ...
After all this cat, dangerous to feathered friends as he might be, sometimes just liked to roll around beneath the tulips and daffodils, lazy and tipsy from all the ebautifull colours and snells that surround him.
It's still winter here in germany, but earth is preparing for spring. nd spring already started here in my studio, More glimpses of what i'm working on in my next post.


  1. Very nice, dreamy atmosphere!

  2. This gorgeous doll, love the colours :)) Definitely brightened up the day here, it's still so grey and wet here :) Have a lovely weekend x

  3. Martina, you will not believe this, but I was just thinking of YOU!!!!! I just happened to look at my blog and i saw your comment that you too had problems with your blog? I could NOT get my comments to work but they finally started to function for this post!

    LOVELY to see you my friend! How I have missed you. And this wonderful painting is a welcoming portal into spring! Yes my friend, we are waiting for spring and we have had incredibly warm temperatures here in what should be a brutally cold place, but "times, they are a changin'!" (Bob Dylan)

    I am so happy to see you. I can see you are still doing some pretty fantastic art and your colors always speak to me. These yellows have awakened my color sense yet again.

    Dearest, do you have Instagram? That is where I've spent more of my creative energy lately, wanting to improve my photos for what I hope one day be a "marriage" of my photography and poetry. Do come to visit at Les Dames D'Abord - the links are on my photos on my post.

    Happy spring as we both wait for a fresh start. Anita
