Holy Sweet Rock Star

Strolls thought the purple nights. A holy cat from A to Z.
He's hungry. He shouts: "I want Candy!"

Is it called a turtle cat in English? In Dutch a turtle cat is a cat with small spots. I translated it in small squared. One had to be different this time. Maybe one fell off. Will it grow on again? Or is it a hidden door? What would be hidden behind it?

Tortoise cats are a bit shy, but also they are curious. Will curiosity win over shyness?

Steam Cat!

Ce tableau a été inspiré par une visite à un festival de train à vapeur.
Qu'est-ce que nous avons ici? C'est un chat de la vapeur! Nuages se posent dessus de sa tête. À toute vitesse, le chat de la vapeur!
 J'aurais pu appelé Steam Cat ou Stoomkat, mais en français le nom semble la meilleure.
Le fond a été inspiré par le prestigieus Express Trans Europe.

Good night, Royal Blue Cat!

 Grab all the stars from the sky,
Let's walk through the moonlight, you and I,
Together we sing along the road:
"Pussy is the Sky with Diamonds!"

Edit: Later today I saw on the news it was 30 years ago that John Lennon died... I didn't know this when I posted this.

Ghost Cat

You know how kids are. They see ghosts everywhere. Watch a scary program on TV and you have to stay up a few nights. This is how we missed the first Doctor Who series.

I was painting another cat, while Eva (my girlfriend) was watching Ghost Whisperer, with Bram. I had warned, but they both did want to see the show. It inspired me to make this "Ghost Cat". Luckily Bram now understands that TV shows are fantasy. Or is it not...

Be Curious

I have a dream. Just a small dream. I would like to see some of my cats hanging inside the school where I work on unexpected places. Just to cheer people a little. I noticed a lot of students already have seen it. Only a few know it's mine. It would be fun if the cats would surprise people, without that people know who made it.
This is the first lucky cat. It is hanging above a hallway at the stair case on the 2nd floor. I got help from a concierge. He was armed with a hammer drill. Took me 2 minutes to hang it there. Thanks Jan! When taking this picture a student (Rosaly) was laughing at me. Not sure what to think of that...
Why does the sun turn red? Why am I ? Why do I hang up here? Why am I a blue striped tiger? Why is a reticulum endoplasmatic and not exoplasmatic? Stay curious!
