Feelin’ Feline

IMG_2422

I am a cat person. More cat than person it feels like some days. I understand them and their ways because their ways are my ways.

For example. I’m watchful and curious. I like being at a height; having a good vantage point is always preferable, advantageous and smart. I always when possible go for the best seat in the house. Corners and windows are optimal. I do not like getting wet unless bathing or swimming. Naps are mandatory. Naps in the sun, heavenly.

And on it goes.

Sadly I am allergic still. 99% allergic to cats said the doctor if that makes any sense. The 1% disagrees.

Butter Me Up

Introducing my new friend the butternut squash. A stunning vegetable that I have been admiring as one has appeared lately in my fruit bowl.

It has fascinated me for several days with its exquisite curves and woodlike shell. The only sane thing to do was make art of it. It is art in itself but I wanted to be a part of it and now I am.

Inspired also by Woody Allen’s affection for Cezanne’s Apples and Pears as stated in his Masterpiece Manhattan.

Pencil Study- Human Foot

IMG_2097

A remarkable thing is the human foot. Also quite exquisite naked of its flesh. I have a fascination with feet. One theory explains such a fascination with having spent a large amount of time in infancy being at foot level with our caregivers. At such a vantage point they become mythical and unfathomable in their importance. Inscrutable and bewitching.
