Away from the dump, the by-now mature Maltese Queen (watercolour and ink, 31x23cm) has already brewed fresh water and is having high tea with her grown-up pet on Valentine’s Day. Luckily the black and white stray kitten (→9♠) did find a forever-home. “Love is in the Air” (John Paul Young 1977) above the mid-Mediterranean landscapes (→9♦). This queen not only looks at her betrothed but also across to her counterpart, the Queen♣.
