Jasper

Jasper (my mother's old cat who has lived with us for the last nine years) always delighted visitors to
Ted Coney's Family Portraits, even when they had to step over him to get into my studio.  He died this week and will be greatly missed. We think he was about 20 years old and was demanding and grumpy to the end. There was nothing he liked better, in his twilight years, than tottering over to the studio to soak up the midday sun.
The only good thing, is that we can now get the carpets cleaned, as I was begining to feel a bit ashamed of them. Jasper would have hated all the noise and the desruption ofcourse, so at least I am spared the telling off he would have given me afterwards.
