This is a commission of cats in a sail boat that I did for Captain Susan Smith. I wasn’t sure what a coracle was but she responded to my proposal drawing with “Cats in Coracle” so I took that to mean it was a go. I looked up coracle and found it to be an ancient round craft used in Wales. In case you have any doubt, here is an image of a coracle. I know my boat is leisurely drifting.
And thinking of commissions, this is a great time of year to order a painting for a holiday gift. I still have time to get a few more in. Just email me at email@example.com
It’s that time again to make the quince paste and quince jam. I am going to try out a crock pot for the paste. Right now the house smells heavenly from 20 pounds of cooking quince.
