In February, 2009 we moved into a larger apartment and I finally have a room all my own to use as a studio. Up until then I worked on my dining room table and had to put everything away when I wanted to start working on a different craft. Now I have a wonderfully huge closet to store all my arts and crafts goodies and a nice craft table, an easel and our computer all in one room. What a difference it makes.

I got out my easel and my oil paints and started painting in a whimsical style. This is my first attempt at whimsy. Here are my four white cat paintings inspired by our white cat "Jake" who passed away last September.
