Gato Mexico

I'm having a Watercolor renaissance. It really is my most natural medium to work in. I am completely self-taught and I think that has really contributed to me finding my own style of painting. 

I smiled with delight when I read the latest art course listings come through from Creative Clearinghouse with Monica Lee (of Smart Creative Women) saying... 

"Waterolor is a beautiful fun medium and it is trending HOT right now!"    - it certainly is in my world anyway!  

Here is my latest painting . . .I'm enjoying painting child-like and playfully.  (Please click on image below to see the painting larger)

• • •My journey through the senses• • •

taste:: Sundried Tomato Pesto and spaghetti - sublime!
smell:: Palo Santo wood smouldering in an Abalone seashell - a coconut-woody-scented offering that is both purifying and attracts helpful benevolent Spirits into the home.
touch:: My soft-soled suede slippers on a cold floor. I'm snug on the inside!
see:: The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey : better than I even dared to hope it would be.
hear:: Savage Garden (self-titled first album)  - a totally retro moment
think:: I'm about ready for this New 2013 Year to begin!
feel:: Very determined and on-purpose. Lots of goals. And a plan to make them happen.
read:: Artists & Illustrators Magazine.
intuit:: The dawning of a new World Age is underway. Love more, relax more, 'be' more... you are exactly where you need to be at this moment in time.


  1. I LOVE this painting, Cat! It's wonderful! Happy New Year!

  2. Oooh, luv this Cat! (Oh- ha! just got this ;) ) Thanks for the mention of Creative Clearinghouse! Monica's class sounds great, and she seems really nice. I think water color is hard, but your work is great! Happy 2013!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I so appreciate it.
