love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”

    Beautifully done! This would make a great illustration for a book! The colors are so lovely and it’s the sort of happy picture that brings a smile to my face. The kitties look so content and well cared for that this warm feeling of contentment is passed right on to the viewer. Wonderful work!

  • So glad it brought you smiles, love to hear that people are smiling while viewing my images, after all they are made just for that reason! Thank you so much for the smiles you just gave me!
