Cat Queen

I sent an art card of an artwork by my favorite Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck to an English Postcrosser who is interested in art. I added a question about her favorite artist into the card and when registering my card she told me the answer: Friedensreich Hundertwasser. I Googled and found out how wonderful colorful art this man has made. Because the dark colored Schjerfbeck art card I had sent was something totally different from Hundertwasser art, I wanted to send a new card. 

I then used my lovely cat Killi and the artwork by Hundertwasser as inspiration and made this "Cat Queen" card by using watercolor and water soluble ink pencils. - I was happy then to receive a message from her that she liked the card. :)
