Vivienne Strauss is an artist living in Portland with her husband Matte Stephens (whom we featured back in July). She paints these amazingly beautiful stories of people, dogs and of course cats! It was so hard to chose which pictures to show, so you must promise to check out her blog and Etsy shop.
Her own cats are called Simon, Krasner, Lillian and Irving. I have a soft spot for Irving, not just because of his eye, but he also looks just like my late cat Elvis.
