A Two Page Spread in a Magazine

Napster ha the distinction of being the First Ever CAT featured in CottageDog magazine.

He figures it's about time. Why should Dogs get all the press?

His two page Cover-Cat spread in the most recent issue took him into 14,000 homes.

It involved a photo shoot with well-known portrait photographer Heather Douglas . She is better known for wedding and family portraits, but Napster "worked it" for her camera, with some encouragement from her two children who came along for the occasion.

He has also found himself mentioned in What's Up Huntsville; the Huntsville Forester, and other local magazines. And last Friday, he got a phone call from the Office of Tony Clement...

Who knows what is next?

Another International Sale

Chris was here last week, and having admired Napster's portfolio, and had a few words with the famous artist sitting on the chair beside him, he purchased one of Napster's 8X10 prints to send as a gift to his sister.

She owns a hotel in Grenada, and Chris thinks this cheerful interpretation of a dancer all decked out in her bright feathery costume at Carnivale would be just perfect on the wall there!

We couldn't agree more. It is the first of Napster's pieces to sell into the tropical islands of the Caribbean! He's excited.
He likes to maintain a bird-like theme in many of his pictures, and when we look at this photo of an actual Caribbean carnival dancer, with so many feathers she could be a Phoenix rising, we can certainly see where he found his inspiration!

Wind in the Garden

While we have been busy putting our gardens to bed, ready for winter, we realized we had not posted one of Napster's more recent works, Wind in the Garden.
He painted this after sitting on the couch with his good friend Susan, who had just won several awards for her Holland Landing garden. It was a breezy day, and I think the two of them were discussing horticulture...
Sue mixed up a palette for him, and Napster 'whipped' up this impression of the wind blowing the flowers... It has been quite popular. One of his young fans, Brooke, simply would not leave Bondi until she had a copy of this in her hands!
Like all Napster's work, it can be turned to change the view, and there are many images to be found in this colourful, cheerful impression!
