Art / History

Five of my favourite animal themed paintings. (Of course there will be cats, and horses)

I like animals. No, I love them. I don’t think a home is a home without animals around. I can’t even begin to imagine to live with someone who doesn’t like animals. I could not imagine a world without them. I am certain in a parallel universe I am veterinarian. If I am not doing what I am doing now, I would probably end up becoming one. (read: sometimes I do wonder what my life would be like if I am a veterinarian.)

And here is a special mention to Marina Dieul, I really love her works – I would like to own some of them one day.
