This cat is definitely one who walks by himself!

I had great fun with the stone walls which work so well in Batik.  Every stone must be put in individually and the wax must cool before waxing the stone next to it - I usually do every other one and then go back and fill in the blanks.  A line of puddles from recent rain reflect the sky as the cat boldly strides towards us.  Our first house was a 2 up 2 down terraced house in Lancashire and the back yard gate opened onto an alley just like this.

This piece is currently for sale in my 50 Years of Batik exhibition
