Lucie & Me Gazing At The Heavens by Lynne Bertalli


ARTIST NOTES: The narrative to this painting is my beautiful little tabby pussycat Lucie & me are gazing into the night sky. The angel cats represent the spirits of all those much loved fur babies who have gone before. There is always so much sadness & grief when you lose such beautiful creatures. The white birds represent new life rising up into the heavens towards the moon. Their flight provides no end of pleasure to a pussy cat. I use various techniques of dry brush, washes & thick layers of paint to create my work. I am strongly influenced by the work of artists Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman and Garry Shead This painting is on quality Italian linen and is ready to hang
