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.

Serafina patiently awaits the arrival of old Saint Nick……..perhaps a succulent mouse.

Prince Charles is perched on the street sign in front of our house. Well….he isn’t really there, but the sign is. My daughter-in-law has a parrot. “Schmutz” doesn’t like anyone but Kathy. He has “buffaloed” two cats and 2 dogs in the house. Birds are quite formidable.

Nandi is a bull from Hindu mythology. He is Shiva’s vehicle and his highest devotee. This bull is my version. The mythological bull actually has more human characteristics. This represents the sacred cow of India. I outfitted my nandi with gold necklaces as well as a little bird….his side kick to keep him company.
