Sputnik is my inspiration for my Siamese Cat Paintings. My latest painting is based on a drawing I did of her while she slept, curled up into a ball, on my lap. Whenever I sit and draw at my desk, she keeps me company.
On the other hand, If I am going to paint, I stand at my waist high work-table. Once she sees me go to this work-table, she usually runs to her cat climber which puts her almost at my eye level to stage her Protest. This lasts for a couple of minutes. I give her a hug and gently but firmly say, "I'm going to work now." She eventually understands that I am not changing my course and jumps off to go sit in my chair at the desk. Here she is in the midst of her protest on July 21, 2009.
To see more photos of her, including last week's photo of her blue eyes, just click on the Cats category at the bottom of my blog page.
