Pinon Cat lives in the southwest of the USA. He was named for the Pinon pine trees which produce wonderful seeds that are very tasty. He siestas beneath the Pinon trees meditating on mouse sauteed in butter and olive oil with pinon seeds and red papers. Oh…A little white wine to deglaze.

I’ve been investigating colorful design backgrounds on black. It comes from my days of being a batik artist. I always used black as the final dye bath. It really set off the painting. I will just keep on going since I am having fun with this method. Maybe I’ll break out my jnanting tool for applying hot wax. Right now I am using liquid relief. It’s fun to experiment.

  1. Batik,artistic experiment that determined the efficacy of your work where Pinon was born, with so much inspiration behind its name and its colourfully dotted,bib-like,scarf…

  2. Thank you Gretchen.
    So much hidden knowledge and cultural connections behind your Art Works and your inspiration.That’s what I totally like with the artistic creations.Trying to delve into the spirit of artists,you start a play with your knowledge reserves and your emotional experiences…
    You touched flora elements with the Pinon pine trees.I refreshed my geography knowledge,thinking of a Greek Aegean island in Sporades which is Skiathos and there are plenty of Pinon trees there,especially in Koukounaries =Pinon pine trees.
    Also,your culinary art reference was interesting (except the mouse).And now you bring out the Gypsy background pattern inspiration,where a Gypsy Florica cat(flower)could be born or a Basque Zorion cat(happiness)…..

    • Re food: mouse fillet is Pinon’s favorite fare. I myself would prefer chicken breast thinly sliced or perhaps Tilapia fillet. The cooking suggestions were my own taste. Pinon actually seems to prefer an uncooked version. The pinion seeds and red peppers (my typo in the blog said red papers) would be used for cooking in our southwest.

      Love your reference to Gypsy and Basque names. I just delved into Basque and Gypsy translations online. I actually do research information surrounding many of my paintings. I have learned much about wild animals by doing this. I love different cultures and not only with the painting, but also, a visit with words. Your posts and comments inspire me. Thank you.
