Search Me and Hendrickje



I’m happy to announce that my listing now shows up when my name or blog site is searched on Google!

Above are some sketches I did of a cat I had that I named after Rembrandt’s common-law wife, Hendrickje Stoffels.  Nobody could pronounce the cat’s name, and after a while even I started to just call her “Scootie”.  The sketches are done in sepia ink with brush and pen.

    Hi Robert. The kitties are beautiful. Don’t know if you will remember me, we met years ago, when I was visiting Janette in Temple. She told me about your website, suggested I check it out. It’s as good as she says! I’m so pleased to see how you’ve turned into a wonderful artist, from the little kid I remember meeting. Of course, kitty lovers always turn out talented!

    Send me an email if you’d like, and I’ll tell you about my lovely Dolly.

  2. Thanks Mark. I have a DVD of the Rembrandt movie and love it. It might be interesting if a modern day version of the life of Rembrandt could be made into a movie.

  3. Bob, These sketches are charming. Although I lost my last Siamese a few years ago and live with 6 rescues, I miss the antics of my meesers. I love her name, too. Charles Laughton’s “Rembrandt” is one of my favorite movies. A young Elsa Lanchester portrayed Hendrickje with aplomb.
