So sad to hear the news that Wallace the lion has died @blackpoolzoo
Loved going to see him and would often be woken up hearing his magnificent roar when we stayed at the nearby hotel. 😞

Do you think Anastasia approves?
I've just finished this portrait of the adorable Molly. Her owner is overjoyed that I've managed to complete it today. ..it's come at a perfect time as they have been scattering her ashes today. It's such an honour to be able to create a memorial that will hopefully bring a lifetime of comfort and fond memories.

Well here’s Oakley!
I hope you like him. Sadly he had to cross the rainbow bridge 🌈 at the tender age of six 😢
It broke my heart hearing that he had liver failure and how his owner had the awful dilemma of breaking the news to her son….I just had to draw him

I’ve delayed sharing this portrait I did with you.
This beautiful boy, Max has sadly passed and my client was giving it to her parents as a thoughtful Christmas present.
I haven’t heard if they liked it… I do hope they did and it gives them some comfort when it brings back precious memories 🙏🏻💕

Here's one of my Christmas commissions I drew.... the ever so sweet "Dusty"
I had the pleasure to meet Dusty. She gave me lots of snuggles when I was delivering a portrait of her "sister" Willow. She had the most adorable beautiful dark eyes.
Sadly Dusty crossed the rainbow Bridge at the tender age of 5 but she had the most wonderful loving family after being rescued from a kill list in a Cyprus shelter.
My client wanted a light blue and white background and I found myself suggesting clouds without having much experience of drawing them however it was the perfect choice as one of her many Nicknames was Little Cloud 💕
I was told there were tears on Christmas day when Dusty's portrait was revealed...job done ✔️

Yay! It's Buddy's 11th birthday today.🎉
He's the dog with 9 lives...we didn't think he would make it past 11 weeks.
The vet asked us if we wanted to have him put to sleep or to go ahead with major surgery.
We'd only had him a few weeks but he had already stole my heart.
We've had one health problem after another with him for 11 years but he's always battled through and actually loves going to the vet where he's a regular.
Such a loyal faithful friend, always there for a cuddle.
Happy birthday Big man♥️

This is what I came up with, I’m hoping people in warmer climates might like it. What do you think?

@justacard have asked us to explain where people can buy our products?
You can buy my Christmas cards by pressing on the “shopping bag” or by going to my website www.cathysettleart.con
I also have an Etsy shop and my artwork is available on a wide range of gifts and apparel in my RedBubble shop (links are in my bio)

The @justacard #shopindependent message is to get the word out to support small creative businesses in a World stacked heavily towards large corporations. Each of my cards takes hours of painstaking dedication and each and every sale is so appreciated and makes me feel that the time put in is worth the effort. It’s so good to know that my artwork can bring joy to others 🥰

It’s been so hard struggling for year and a half with Long Covid. Sometimes I wonder if it’s time to give up creating my artwork 🤷🏼‍♀️
But then I read such a lovely review and even though I can’t draw for as long I used to, it gives me the encouragement and motivation to keep on my creative journey 😊

It’s @justacard campaign week where we encourage people to buy from small independent creatives rather who don’t a happy dance every time they make a sale 🕺🏻

Hi, we're wondering if we should have our kitten insured? 🤷
We have the dogs insured but not sure if is worth having a cat insured. Would love to know what everyone thinks?

Meet Anastasia! 💕
We have a new member of the Settle household!
If there’s any fellow cat owners….I would really appreciate any tips.
She’s already such a good girl and using her litter tray. She’s a Rag Doll so needs to stay indoors.
I’m already in love with her and will definitely have to draw her one day 😻

Jetho's taking a keen interest in the toys I've bought in preparation for welcoming a new member to the Settle family 💕

I started this one a couple of years ago, finally getting round to finishing it off.
I've already drawn a Red Squirrel so I'm not sure what I should call this one 🤔
Suggestions welcome

Meet Brodie! Wasn't he handsome?
Sadly he's crossed over the rainbow bridge 🌈
It was an honour to draw a surprise gift for his owner who now has a lasting memorial of her beloved faithful friend 💕

It’s now safe to show you Taylor the Dalmatian and Henry the Rotty Lab cross. They’ve been gifted to their owner and as always, it always makes the hard work worthwhile to hear there were tears of joy.

After much deliberation I’ve decided to increase my pet portrait commission prices. They will now be £200 per pet. I know many people will think this is excessive, however it is in line (well actually still below) what other artists charge and each piece used to take me a week or two to complete. However I have been struggling since my Covid infection with peripheral neuropathy. I get intermittent pain and numbness in my hands and most days can’t hold my pencils for very long. I’m praying I will improve with time but currently it’s showing no sign of getting better and each piece is taking me so much longer than usual.
If you are considering commissioning me to draw your own beloved pet and need it for a specific date, please book your place leaving plenty of time

I haven’t had many votes this year 😞
A lot of you have commented that you have been unable to see the blue “like” and “share” buttons that count as a vote.
I’ve only been able to see them on my Samsung phone and not on my tablet.
Apparently all likes on the Wraptious Facebook post will also count as a vote. (Press on the picture and like the post it takes you to)

It’s the last weekend of the competition so there’s 20% off all prints and cushions when you use code COMP21

I had to keep Buddy on his lead (vet's orders to rest for a month) but Jethro enjoyed a birthday run in the woods 💕
