Cats bird watching is a little watercolour painting of the view from my window. My computers and my art table have a view directly out onto a bird feeding station. My cats, Skipper (the orange one) and Officer Dibble (the tortie one), often come to visit me while I work and sit on the window sill to watch the birds. During daylight hours, there is rarely a time when there isn’t a bird on the feeders. I have shown a nuthatch, a great tit, a goldfinch, a couple of blue tits and four of our very active house sparrow family that live in the damson tree.
Occasionally, the cats catch a bird (though small mammals are more their forte). But I reckon we keep so many birds alive with the kilos of nuts and seeds we put out, that the odd loss to predatation makes no difference to overall numbers.
The original painting has already found a home, sorry! However, you can buy a digital file of this painting for £35, with which you can make a one-off print at a format and size of your choice. Read more about this option…
