This is a digital painting of our cat Sheba-Rebecca produced with the help of loose brush in fotosketcher plus DAP.

In 2002 a young girl neighbour called with a white kitten that desperately needed a home but the girl was told that there was no room at the Inn since the house already had 3 cats.

She explained that the kitten had been thrown in the rubbish skip and that she only had 3 legs but made up for this with a huge cry which she was using for someone to come and save her.

Without hesitation my wife said bring in the kitten and has never regretted her decision.
Sheba turned out to be a beautiful silver point Burmese with a loving and royal demeanour, maintaining a close love affair with Pepe ever since she arrived and admired by all who see her.

She is one of our most beautiful, loving and loyal cats with one of her main delights to travel by car and accompany us on our picnics.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    Fantastic eyes, good colours…Lyz

  • Thank you :)
    She is a most adorable cat with striking blue eyes and it took me quite a time to get this effect from a picture that I had previously done.
