Laurens-Jan is the first Holy Cat I painted on wood. The panel is a little smaller than usual. Laurens-Jan's initials are painted in Greek on the cat's trunk. I like to give my "Holy Cats" unusual double names. Both Laurens and Jan are typical old Dutch names.

At the graduation at school this year (I guess that was in June) there were two girlfriends of someone I had given a cat in the past. They both liked that cat so they came to me when they had the chance. One of the girls liked my Purple Sweets Square Cat. I told her that it was hers if she wanted it. A few weeks later I saw here cycling in the street, when I wa in the garden, so I called her and gave her that cat.

"holy Fire Cat", Acryl on canvas 10 x 10 cm, 2012.
I made a video how I make my paintings. Somehow I had a pretty long fight with iMovie this time, but after starting over 3 times, it worked again. I'm not sure what I did wrong. The painting was inspired by Stewart M. who is a Fireman and author of Positive Paradise. I have thought this painting out in Barcelona. Not included in the video is the painting of the fire hose on the side. I had already turned off the timer. Instead of photo's, a video this time.
The Japanese characters 防火用 mean "Bouka-you", which translated mean: "For Fire Protection" (first two characters mean: "Fire Proctection", the other one means "Use as" or "Use for"). Big thanks to Debrah for figuring this out for me.

Behold, The Velvet Pussy!
The initial inspiration was found from my beer tear-off calendar that I got from good friends. Free translated it says: "The Irish and English mix their beers with all kinds of drinks and give it curious names. Red Witch is, by example, Guinness with Pernod, cider and berry juice. Velvet Pussy is Guinness with Port and Black Velvet is Guinness with Champagne. For the English, a Mother in Law, is an old with a bitter."
Only the name, Velvet Pussy. I had to paint it, but first i had to taste it...
Frankly, give me my Guinness (Draught) just pure...just like my port. Personally I din't think the Velvet Pussy tasted that good.
The velvet and port. It reminded me of the Patta x Parra Nike Air max 1 sneakers.
