Summer painting

'Dog next to pole', Noel McKenna

White cat, Noel McKenna

Lucy has been away for over a week now, the longest time yet, staying with her grandparents.   She arrives home tomorrow so Audrey and I decided we'd paint.  I love Noel McKenna's works (have you seen his Lost paintings?) and Lucy loves dogs (but her Dad doesn't want one, hm) so to get in the spirit of painting again I made her a version of both his 'White Cat' (just the window) and 'Dog next to pole' (without the pole, of course). In happy colours of course; she's eight and a girl, after all.
