A cat on your lap, or one sprawled across the drawing board, or tiptoeing across the palette with a shake of the paw, these are the daily pleasures.
Head bumps, soft purrs, nuzzles, kneads...
The Musings and Melancholies of an Artist and her cat herd.
Small painting on wood block.
Figure opening his chest to lay bare his heart.
His head is a skull face...symbolizing the risk, the death of self, who you were, when you risk "Baring your heart" and the inevitable rejection or pain.
