Animal wednesday / Sjimmie still in the window sill

This is the painting I was struggling with last week.........
I don't know if it is finished or not but I took it home.
I love how the sky and water turned out, but the rest....nah.
I will just look at it and see what I would like to change.
I feel much better after my cold and played tennis and went to my art class with the bike instead of the car. 
 When I came home I found Sjimmie in the window sill.....
 Just like he was still there since 2 weeks ago....

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

John Lennon"Beautiful Boy"
English singer & songwriter (1940 - 1980)
Don't forget to click on the link above to hear the song with the famous quote and enjoy it.

Sjimmie: "Now that is something for human beings
I just plan my naps that's all. and in between naps I just live by the moment."

Happy Animal Wednesday!


  1. I really like this painting... but I will be interested to see what changes you decide to make.

    Oh, that SJIMMIE!!!!! I can't imagine anything more adorable to come home and find! He fits in that basket perfectly....

    I am so happy you are feeling better! (Luv the John Lennon song...those wrods are so true!)

    See you soon!

  2. I like the painting...the hills both green and purple have female feeling for me in their shapes. Very sensual.

    And your kitty is such a love.
    So sweet!!!Hug him for me please, and happy animal Wednesday to you too.

  3. I love the colors in your painting! Hide it for a few days and you will see what is bothering you.

    I laughed out loud when I saw Sjimmie in that basket. What a guy!!!!

    So happy you are feeling better.

  4. I think if you put away your painting for awhile you will have a better perspective of what bothers you about it. I like those rolling hills. Sjimmie is living the royal life. King of the house no doubt. HAW.

  5. marianne, i LOVE the painting. maybe some more depth on the green hills but my god, everyother aspect of the mountains, sky, ocean is just wonderful.

    it is a thrill to see your work in other mediums. well well done


  6. oh and that teetering basket. too too sweet


  7. I too love the painting, but you must love it, so do what you will :-).
    I also love that Sjimmie. I now have my own female version :-).
    Glad you are feeling better!

  8. Glad you are feeling better, Marianne! Me too! After 4 days of laryngitis, I finally have my voice back! Going back to work tomorrow.

    Love your painting! Sjimmie is so adorable in that litle basket!!! Just a cute little sweetie pie!!!

    Keep feeling better!!!!!

  9. lovely painting. i like the hills the best I think. sort of Georgia O'Keefe. glad you are feeling better. Hmm, maybe I should start planning my naps too!

  10. daardie sjimmie, hy is die beste! jy weet wat hulle se:
    ;et sleeping dogs lie'...of miskien:
    'let sleeping cats lie'...
    baie soentjies en wfs vir joe en sjimmie en koekie en droppie ook.

  11. I love that painting!!! It has magic ;) I think you should continue with these landscape/seascapes. They're very dreamlike!

    That Sjimmie...nap nap nap eat nap nap nap eat poop :)
