My Artistic Adventure begins.

I am taking a little break. Well we all need a change of scene from time to time to recharge the batteries, experience new things and in my case get the creative juices bubbling up like a freshly poured glass of Champagne.

And where better to come than Paris.

My artist’s adventure will also fulfill an additional need and that is a ‘cat fix.’

Since my Cachou died a couple of years ago, I have been dithering about whether to get another feline friend. I’m still dithering so it seemed a good idea to cat sit to get my fix. There is something about the presence of a cat or two to take the edge off living alone. And what better way to do it than by looking after someone else’s in a different place. And what a great place to come, Paris

,The two cats Smokey and Gem are affectionate and fairly well behaved, until it’s a race to see who will get to my bed first in the morning, then there might be a bit of a spat.

Here are a couple of photos of the little tinkers and a short video.

I would like to add that these were done with my new Smartphone (need I say more)……rather a steep learning curve, so no sight seeing today as I try to learn the basics. However I have been scribbling in my artist journal every day and am building a nice little collection of creative goodies some of which will be turning into paintings and tutorials for my students. And if I get the hang of the video function I might even be able to produce some video tutorials when I am out and about ! No pressure !
