Sleeping Cat Drawing

Sleeping cat drawing on paper

It’s cold here again, so a time for cosying up this weekend. Cats have the right idea. A quick drawing, but it captured the essence.¬† Always good to seize the moment. This¬† sleeping cat is another one I did a little while ago.

And a date for your diary, for when the weather’s (hopefully) warmer. I’m a member of the Art of Gwynngala group and we’re having a showing of paintings, sculpture and ceramics¬† at the¬†Cowslip Workshop near Launceston in North Cornwall¬† over Easter, 19 – 28 April, 10-4 daily. There’s a lovely cafe there, next to the exhibition space, and a textile studio/shop. So if you’re in the area, please come over for coffee or lunch and have a browse. There’s a Meet the Makers event on Saturday 20 April 12 – 2 pm, too.¬† Hope to see you there.

Sorry for the break – it’s been a time of sporadic posting lately. I’ve been doing some translating, which I love! I’ve translated a chapter of a new German book into English, no less! So the painting has taken a back seat. But I’m back now. I’m exhibiting in a group show with Art of Gwynngala in mid-April and hoping to have an Open Studio event in May, so will need to have some paintings ready for then.

I came across this sketch while doing some clutter clearing yesterday. It was done en plein aire, one summer’s day, from above Trebarwith beach in Cornwall.¬† I’ve come across some lovely little sketches in the archives. So I’ll post them here over the next few weeks. Hope you enjoy them.

And belated happy Women’s Day for yesterday.
