Hi there, I hope your all doing well and enjoying your Fall. I know that we are really enjoying the cooler weather now and so is our garden. I wanted to share a couple more oil paintings from our collection here at home. Some more kittens that we have playing in the living room. I decided to join in for ~ White Wednesday ~ being they have some splashes of white on their faces and paws.

This oil is on canvas and is one I found at a friends shop in San Bernardino Ca. It is dated 1886 and does have the artist name on it but I haven't really looked up the artist. I just know that I like the kittens in the hay taking a nap while their mother watches them. It looks like they are in a barn with the hay all over the floor.

This oil is also a Victorian painting and is painted on board. These little guys were too cute to pass up. And the price was a steal. It has a pretty little gold gesso frame which makes it a little sweet painting.

I'm going to join for ~ White Wednesday ~ and also for ~ Vintage Thingie Thursday ~So if you like to take a look at some other wonderful post Stop by! I hope you find some interesting things on your journey this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a good week....Julian & Ray


  1. Hi Julian and Ray... I see you have gotten Ray to join the blog! Yea!! You guys have the most wondeful finds!! Your kitties are adorable, but your girls must be so jealous:-)) I just friended you on facebook... I didn't know you were dealers... no wonder you know the good finds so well!! Have a great weekend & thanks for visting:-)

  2. Hello Julian & Ray, what a great pair of paintings; the kitties look so life-like, can almost see them scurrying around playing in the hay. Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. Dear Julian and Ray, Your cat paintings are absolutely charming. I do not know how you manage to collect such beautiful oil paintings with pretty frames at such inexpensive prices. You both certainly have an eye for a bargain!

  4. Hi Julian, well, I'm a sucker for kittens as I'm definitely a cat person, and this painting is just gorgeous. It looks very "Country French" to me. I always apprecialte you guys linking up to VIF! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Love your paintings. Of course I love anything with kitties but your paintings are lovely and the frames on both are just wonderful.

  6. Such cute paintings...HAPPY NTT!


  7. Hi Julian, I love the first painting of the kittens. Wow! 1886? It is in amazing shape. I adore the ornate dark frame. (I have a passion for dark ornate wood). Just beautiful. *hugs*

  8. I have several kitty prints in my kitchen, but no paintings-these are wonderful. Old stuff is definetely the best -there's no comparison and when its one -of a kind-even better!

  9. Great finds there...who can resist cute kittys and those frames are beautiful!

  10. You guys have the most wonderful collections, love the kittens! Thanks for sharing! Theresa xoxo

  11. I really enjoy all your paintings, but the kitties are the ones I would most like to have.

  12. What sweet paintings, and I always love seeing all your wonderful paintings. I really love those white cats! Happy VTT!
