One morning last week I walked into the studio to see paintings scattered about on the floor. This was not the result of earthquakes, the kittens seem to be the culprits. At first I didn't notice any damage, but a closer look revealed some light scratches on the surface. It seems that in an effort to get to the window above, the kittens attempted to climb the paintings leaning against the wall. I'm lucky that the marks didn't go too deep - the underpainting was unscathed. I very lightly sanded the scratched areas and repainted. I've also rearranged all the paintings in the studio so that none of them look, to a kitten's eyes, like the ladder to a view.
The likely suspects.
