des chats

Mordant tale of cat who eats rat poison from A. B. Frost's "The Fatal Mistake" (1894). Big cat with red collar by Paul Davis (1975). Encounter of brick and black cat from George Herriman's "Krazy Kat." White arm and white cat from FĂ©lix Edouard Vallotton's "La Paresse" (1896). Black-&-white cat with man's brown trousers and shoes by Norman Rockwell.

I apologize for being so erratic in my participation in this wonderful blog. My health has not been good. But please don't worry about me. I don't have a dire illness or anything critical,  and I'm still very committed to making collages. It's my legs: I can walk, a little bit, with a cane,  but it's a painful endeavour. On the days when I can't walk at all, I can't get to my studio, and when I'm in lot of pain, I can't concentrate well enough to make art. It's as simple as that.


  1. Fiona it is ALWAYS a pleasure to have you participate when you are up to creating and this is a delightful collage (I know cats are a special part of your life). Wonderful mix of images and thanks for identifying them all. (The only one I would have known is Herriman's Krazy Kat who I adore!)

  2. As your cats you seem to have 9 lives Fi..... no matter what, you're always coming back.
    Take care!

  3. For cat lovers everywhere - and there are many!
