Here are the next paintings in the huge art project…
81 – You’ve Been Zeussed! – SOLD
Many of you have said how much you’re enjoying the Zeus portrait in the 2022 calendars. The original of this celebratory cat portrait has gone to it’s furr-ever home … here’s a picture of it on the gallery wall of the owners’ home. How sweet does that kitty’s pup friend look? Awww…
82 – Paws in the Parsley Patch
When you have parsley and your’e obsessed by kitties… this is a thing that can happen. The favourite vase pattern has escaped and run riotously yellow, blue and floral on the cat at their picnic.
This is a pic that will bring sweetness and sunshine to your space. It’s available unframed right now – click this to read more. Snap up the sunshine at the old unframed price, $395!
83 – Florals Amidst Paisleys
A cheerful thrifted cup amidst delicious patterns – let your eyes wander and feast amongst the paisleys and florals.
This still life painting is a contender for my 2022 art exhibition… stay tuned for updates on that! Or click this text & hop on my mailing list so you hear first when I make that announcement!
84 – Trio of Pears
This pear still life painting will be in my 2022 Pear Shaped exhibition (<<< check out the webpage for details). It’s available now (framed) for pre-sale, ready for pick up at the start of September.
This might also be the cover of the next round of still life calendars … stay tuned on that front!
85 – Wassily Playing
I created this work for my FLOW(ER) exhibition in 2021, which was with the fabulous, indomitable Julie Frahm. This kitty painting is a response to Kandinsky’s work Squares with concentric circles combined with a super relaxed kitty. Kandinsky’s circles and squares were interpreted both smaller and plentiful (background), and sprinkled in various sizes. And on a cat. :)
This is available (in a white timber frame), also at the old price, $515 …
Contact Me if you’re interested in this one for your very own, as it’s not yet on my website. … on my Paintings and Lino Prints webpage.
86 – Kandinsky’s Dream
Currently on display at AAH Aldinga, you may have seen it there in the front clinic, Fleurieu locals (Fleuri-ocals?) Gosh you could drink the nutritious vibe at that gorgeous place! This is a literal-response-plus-a-cat to Kandinsky’s circles on squares.
I think a friend wants this original painting for her own. I’ll let you know if it becomes available.
Several ideas worth sharing
- Sarah Wilson (on her Wild podcast) talks to Jason Hickel about the concept of Degrowth Economics. Now I’ve heard it I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve ordered the book from the library [can’t wait] though I already have a nice stack of books awaiting!
- Follow the money talked to Admiral Chris Barrie and got some fascinating answers on how Australia could do well to prepare for increasing disasters.
- This article about drawing with kids and talking about the Ukraine has ideas that would probably be beneficial for adults too, right?
- If you want to read about humans protecting the environment in Alaska, so that fish can keep up healthy populations, check out this article from Reasons to be Cheerful. Big, fascinating, a-maz-ing photos of something I’ve never seen in real life, and a relaxing beautiful underwater video (of fish swimming) that made me smile right in the middle of the article.
Hope you have a great month… take it slowly, and shine your light!

PS I’m not going to be able to be at the local art market this month. :(
PS2 Here’s that ‘lead’, again. Use code “vip*Fri-pping” (without quote marks, copy/paste for accuracy so the technology works) for free shipping within Australia on all online card, fine art print and 2022 calendar orders over $50 placed by sundown on Sunday! I’d buried the lead (if not the lead, then something of note) here, so went ahead and copy-pasted it at the top, too. Get free shipping, friends!
