Close Up of a Maine Coon Cat

Tiger's Eyes
When I Look in your Eyes
This is the fourth in the series inspired by the song of the same name from the Dr. Doolittle musical. There is something hypnotic and otherworldly about staring into the eyes of a cat. They are wise yet non-judgemental, Unlike the family dog, whose devotion borders on worship, cats have no illusions about us, yet they accept us for the bumbling idiots that we are, and they somehow manage an honest affection for us inferior beings. The love and respect of a cat are not easily won, but but it is a treasure worth seeking.

This is a pastel on Ampersand Pastel Board, 5 x 7.   It will be listed on Daily Painters and Art Helping Animals on Tuesday of this week. All pastels come mounted on foam core, with a white mat and ready to be framed. 20% of this sale will be donated to Tabby's Place.
