Description A tender moment is exchanged between Momma Kitty and daughter Simone during a mutual grooming session. This was one of the first times I had gotten close to Momma and her kittens, after she brought four of the five to live at our house from our new neighbor across the road. In the beginning, she kept them in the hedgerow, but began bringing them up to the porch to eat, and eventually found we could be trusted friends, and now family - though Simone is no longer with us. Only two of her kittens remain (she had one more kitten before being spayed - Nathaniel), Ethan, who also lives with us, and Blue Eyes, the daughter she left with neighbor Kathy.
Betsy LaMere, Kent, New York Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement We all express our life experiences and personality through our art, yet the artist never really know where his passion will lead him...
A native of Rochester, New York, I have been working as an artist for over twenty years. I currently work out of my studio at home on a small 40 acre farm in Kent where I reside with my family, two dogs, thirteen cats, sixteen ducks and three horses.
The main focus of my work is equine, though a large body of my photographic work is an expression of my everyday surroundings, which never fail to provide me with inspiration, appreciation and solace.
I work primarily in pen and ink and photography, as well as colored pencil and acrylic. The majority of the work found here on imagekind is my photographic work, due to the relative ease in reproducing it.
