For Mabel


Mabel had the loveliest black and grey fur..


When she was a tiny kitten her stripes and spots on her tummy were really strong and I'd always planned to try and do a series of paintings showing abstract versions of this.  Little did I realise I'd have such little time to do it while she was still with us.  So today, having buried her in the garden, I decided to do a quick design in my sketchbook to represent her markings




A close up of the left hand page which is about 4" square and is torn, painted papers on an acrylic painted background background
And this is a close-up of the righthand side, again with painted, torn papers and acrylic paint with ink drawing.







RIP lovely Mabel
