who me?

I've been interviewed by Karen for the Cat's Meow blog and am called the "cat lady artist. It is funny to me because that is not how I perceive myself but maybe it is how others view me and my work:) I DO paint a lot of cats!
Pop over and have a look!

I also saw an extraordinary documentary last night about a Slovenian man, Martin Strel. He is an endurance swimmer and has swum the length of the Yangtze, Mississippi, Danube and attempted the AMAZON! He swam the same distance as the Atlantic Ocean in his Amazon quest(3274miles). All this and he is 53, fat and probable alcoholic! A remarkable film and the question I had was, why have I not heard of this man??? He swims to bring attention the the pollution threatening the world. The film is called Big River Man and if you have a chance, go see it!!!!

Thanks for the links! Your interview was great and I also watched the "pilot" for Big River Man: he's very inspiring, in a crazy kind of way. But his intent is very serious: to draw attention to the effects of water pollution.

Hmmm...I wonder if the fat and alcohol are the reason he can endure swimming all those waterways? Sounds like an interesting documentary.

You are a delightful "cat lady artist"! :-D
Going over to read your interview next.

PS: A few thoughts of Yogi bear also entered my mind while I was in
