Painting with Kittens.

So, today in my studio I began to grind ink. It seems that the grinding of ink is a thing that is irresistible to inky coloured kittens. As is the use of a brush on paper. Close supervision was obviously demanded and thought necessary by small paws. As a result I now have a piece of work that is produced using paper, ink, water, grindstone, brushed, experience, light and kittens. Oh, and gold leaf. 







The finished piece, shown in the top image is being auctioned to raise money for The Snow Leopard Trust. 
Current bidding is at £200 or around $320. To bid email Jackie ( the cat's mother). Bidding closes 48 after no more bids come in.

Only by the two of us as Mr Bundle was off doing other interesting things. I think he was reading I am Cat in a corner somewhere,

You captured the kitten beautifully. The background of pawprints is reminsicent of sponge painting on walls!

Oh I wish I had more wall space!
What a perfect choice of charity too...there are so few of those beautiful snow leapards left in the wild now

Oh, such helpful paws! We try to be helpful, but I'm afraid our idea of "help" is not always what She thinks.
PS I started a new blog.

The kitten footprints add something to the already beautiful painting.
