Hereís a more recent attempt at painting cats and I think Iím getting the hang of things a bit better. It's a design I adapted from an old Christmas card. My friend from Australia, Lindy Clarkson (Judd), stayed with my hubby and me for a few days when she visited the US in 2000. Lindy taught me the ins and outs of painting fur. I really love the way this box turned out. It was difficult for me, fur is still tricky, but Iím improving.
