Sleeping Kittens



When I came down stairs this morning I walking into the living room and found my youngest daughter curled up with Kevin the kitten on the sofa, both fast asleep. After oohing and arghing , I grabbed my camera to photograph the cute duo. There is something warming and comforting seeing my children lying in the fetal position, it also reminds me of when they were babies and I would cuddle them as they slept in the same position.






So after such a lovely sight first thing this morning, youngest daughter and kitty had to be today's subject for a painting.

That is so cute! I can't imagine my dog or the housemates' cat lying so still while we clutched them to us while sleeping :)

hat;s the kind of scene that will cause me to just sit and watch one of my children sleep for an eternity.

Nicely translated to the canvas. It has a great feel to it.
