About Artist Susan Herbert
Susan Herbert was one of the most distinctive of contemporary cat artists, who produced consistently crafted watercolours that respond with wit and affection to the imagery of Western culture. The long traditions of painting, theatre, opera and ballet, and the newer art of cinema, are explored and refreshed in intelligent and entertaining parodies, in which cats – and other favourite animals – appear as protagonists: from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus through Puccini’s Tosca to Greta Garbo as Mata Hari.
Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
