I first came across the beautiful artwork of Rosina Wachtmeister when looking for a picture of someone playing a flute. I wanted something light, bright, and exciting - not a photo and not a picture of a classical musician seriously playing in an orchestra. I found the perfect image and then discovered the artist who had painted it.
This artist didn't just paint fanciful flutists, she painted colorful cats too! I was sold. Cats are a special favorite of mine. I love photos of cats - even though they are usually quite disdainful of the idea of posing for a camera they do take up the best poses in their everyday life! Painters, though, are free from the constraints of the actual colors and shapes of real cats, and can take their essence and fly with it. That's what Rosina does. And her work is gorgeous.
