For Cat Lovers – Rosina Wachtmeister

Rosina Wachtmeister’s playful images burst with innocent, childlike exuberance. Wachtmeister, who was born in Vienna and studied art in Brazil, lives near Rome with her collection of animals who clearly inspire her work. Creating her art in a multitude of mediums, Wachtmeister is world-renowned for her signature use of vivid colors and optimistic images. In addition to her original works, her images are also reproduced in jewelry, figurines, kitchenware and home décor accessories.

Plows and salt spreaders hit the streets up and down the East Coast to stem chaos during Wednesday morning’s commute as a storm that shut down much of the South churned northward and dumped several inches of wet, heavy snow.

Dog’s love of owner, next to her grave.

A dog, “Leao”, sits for a second consecutive day, next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the week’s catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero, on Jan. 15. Brazilians braced for more rain Saturday, fearing further landslides after walls of muddy water tore through towns and claimed some 550 lives in the country’s worst flood disaster on record.

Katie Cannon says: I think anyone who has ever owned a dog will probably get a lump in his or her throat upon viewing this picture. I know I did. See more from the flooding and landslides in Brazil here. More at link here.

Marley is a sweet rescue dog that I adopted one year ago. He’s now 4 and extremely spoiled. If you’re interested in finding a pet, please check out this site: Pet Finder.

From my archives – I need to take more photos of him but he still likes to lunge for the camera.
