What a poignant post! I'm so heart happy for Daniel and awed by his exquisite renderings of your kitties, Margie. How wonderful to see and appreciate a budding young artist with a brilliant future ahead. What a treasure you have in those portraits as well as in that friendship! It's beautiful to behold!


Daniel, I hope you are reading these comments! Your work is impressive. It is a gift to find your talent early in life. Treasure it! I hope you are able to pursue your passion in art. Follow your heart in all that you do.

I *LOVE* this! What a sweet, talented, GOOD boy! How nice to have such a lovely friendship!


I love those drawings. He captured Edgar's expression beautifully. I also checked out his blog. Such talent and I'm seeing a cool sense of humour in some of his drawings.


everything that I was going to say has already been said by all these lovely ladies ... I also hope Daniel will read these comments, such gifted children need to know how good they are at what they do. I wish him to always find joy & passion in what he loves to do.


how wonderful! so much talent in that young man. and his subject matter, well, they're amazing too, of course!

Lovely World

These are SPECTACULAR! How wonderful to see Geninne's creative gift traveling to the next generation.

I have so enjoyed following your travels through this blog as well as Geninne's. I think you had quite a few of us arm chair travelers! Thanks so much.


umm, whoa.


What a talented boy...just like his mum. He has really 'captured' your felines.
Amazing trip (been following your trip on Gennine's blog) and so nice to catch up with friends.
Very special.

And oh my goodness, Byron's reaction is priceless :D

Wow, what lucky felines to have their portraits made by such a talented artist! Love them!
