About This Piece
I have a cat. He sits and stares at me, disapprovingly I suspect. He is a tabby but I did this on a white gesso paper surface and the white undercoat or "veil" makes the colors more reflective. The gesso also gives the painting a stable ground.
I have always focused on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials.
