Hello there! How are you today? I hope all is well and you are looking forward to a lovely weekend. I don’t know where the time goes but here we are on the 29th June already, time obviously flies! I wanted to share my latest piece for my Wild Britain collection with you.
I am a HUGE lover of the Scottish Wildcat and my ancestral roots are deeply connected. My maternal side of the family is McIntosh from the highlands of Scotland and their clan motto is “Nev’r touch the cat bot a glove” Which translated means don’t touch this cat without a glove on! So that says a great deal about both the glorious Scottish Wildcat and our family reputation!
I hope you enjoy viewing him and you can get a sense of his character and wild nature from this piece. He is certainly intently focused on someone or something, that’s for sure!
You may be aware that these beautiful felines are now endangered animals, due to habitat loss and also inbreeding with feral domestic cats. There is thankfully a wonderful charity called Saving Wildcats, up in the Highlands who are now embarking in a captive breed and release programme to prevent these beautiful cats from going extinct. I will be donating 10% of all sales from this art to this cause, to help play a part in protecting this iconic and stunning species.
If you would like to hear/read more about him please do visit my FB page – Jules Chabeaux Artist and visit my Wild Britain Gallery . Sending much love as always, Jules XXX
