I saw a photo on Vosges Paris of a cat curled up in a garden chair with cosmea flowers. I loved the calm I felt while looking at the photo. I thought it would make the perfect weekend painting. Not only did I get great inspiration... I got a lovely story too. When I sent an email of my painting to Vosges Paris... she told me how she got "Meneer Kaas" Mister Cheese. " He was left on the street by people who went on holiday for 3 weeks... the first thing he dared to eat from our hands was a piece of cheese. " He looks quite content today!
