Untitled 17 (oil)

36" x 36".

Yet again the upper-left glare problem. No, I don't take these with a professional lighting sort of setup. But they mostly come out well regardless.

He sat like this for a long time before I noticed he was in there. He then waited some more, making sure I was going to take some pics of him. Some of you may wonder, why not more photos of Lynx, or Miss Lemon, or Cleo? It's because Rumi is a total camera ham. He adores being the center of attention in any situation. When the camera gets pointed at them, the other cats shy away immediately. Rumi, on the other hand, looks straight into the camera and even offers you multiple poses when you start shooting.

In Munnar.

My eye went right to this in my sidebar! Really interesting in the way it's so BOLD in some ways and so subtle in others...

Very well composed, and so deeply red. Reeeeeeddddd.

Rumi needs to be renamed ham.

Lovely, the light just shimmers red in your beautiful abstract painting Jala.

Jala, I get that upper glare thing a lot with oils, until they get really dried out. Hope you and your household have been well! x0

Hi Karen - That's just what I was going for. I'm glad it works.

Casey - You made me laugh. Reeeeeedddddd.

Caroline, thank you. I like how the transparent layers, together, create that shimmer.

Karen B - Thank you for noticing.

Hola Fernando - ?Que' tal?

Hi Tina - Yeah, maybe it's because the painting is still pretty wet. Cheers!

Muy Caliente Senora. Love the fire in colors.
What you said about Lynxie and Lemon is true of my cats which proves how really special Rumi is. He's a Whole ( Foods ) Lotta Cat.
I really enjoy how you trot out one India photo at a time as though going through an endless supply. This character reminds me of our Mocko Jumbie Stilt Walkers.
