meet slinky malinky

New member of the clan! A pure black 12 week old boy kitten. He is settling in really well although there are some “boundary issues” around paint!

For instance this is OK

and so is this…

this however is not!

I told you!

OK, that’ll work I suppose.

My apologies for not posting yesterday. To be honest I don’t really have any excuse. I just didn’t get anything done that was a) small and b) good enough to post. That happens sometimes. Hope you didn’t notice!

  • What a sweety he looks and I bet he will have a few more adventures before he gets too much older! I’m sure he will love that red armchair too if it’s in your home to make himself comfy on.

  • Slinky Malinky – great name and such a cute kitten! It looks as though he is a natural in the studio. He’s going to be a wonderful art critic/companion! Your photos are wonderful.

    I love the red chair and the loosness in your brush work. You’ve done a great job in capturing the light, too!

  • I love this chair and Slinky Malinky. Super painting — so alive and rich. I have a black cat too — Timbah, and a siamese, Fiona, and of course Zoey the dog. I was painting outside yesterday and 60 pound Zoey ran through my paint. Baby wipes eh? Good to know.

    Take care,


    • Hi Barbara, Kelley McDonald told me about using vegetable oil. It works even better than the baby wipes and is edible and safe! I had to get more after the other day!
