Serene watercolour in blue, white and gold, of a young woman holding her beloved white cat, surrounded by floating flowers. The cat's paw rests in her cupped hand.
I adore cats and here is one presented in my current series of watercolours on textured paper, highlighted with gold gouache on the cat's eyes, on the flowers bursting open and on the girl's dress and veil. Now, writing about it, I am aware of the classic religious art pose, married with my fascination with decorative golden veils - perhaps a little nod back to my religious upbringing where Renaissance pictures of the Virgin Mary decorated my grandmother's home and this lovely (Indian) paper that I favour right now.
