an estonian cat

How's it hangin'? I like to think of this as the new fine-art version of those "Hang in there" kitten posters, remember those? But Estonian artist Nerva has way more in his repertoire than that. You could be waving at the moon, jostling for next place, or you can be that dog denying everything. Nerva's art website is one of the most interesting I have ever encountered - he's thought of everything: what color is your room? what size do you need? square or landscape? And you can find art to fit.

These are jolly, warm little prints that make me feel affectionate. What do you think?

What a wonderful find Nerva is. Well done Curator, we all love these paintings. So simple, and yet capturing everything that is good.

Kittens improving a little today judging by the smiles on the faces of our humans! BUT, we are going to keep them until next Monday now.... *big sigh*

What a delight.

Hey my word verification is spayr? Do you think they know something?

Hi you two! Whicky, best of luck with kitten health and...rehoming! Fin, HA HA HA!
I'm glad you enjoyed Nerva's work. It is very soothing and sweet, I find.

I liked the 'I deny everything' one. The shadow seemed to add an element of mystery to it all. What light was shining on the central figure? Maybe an interrogator's spotlight? Also the blankness around the dog and the look in its eyes.
