White 4...and a sleepy monkey

Number 4 of 8. Oil and cold wax on museum panel, 6" x 6".


And who is a very sleepy monkey?

Kittens are so funny in that they have only an on/off switch, no modes in between. Gadjo is either being a holy terror perpetual motion machine, or else he's sound asleep and whines if you disturb him (which you just always want to do, because he's so irresistibly adorable while asleep).

Doesn't he just look like a little lima bean? (Or, I suppose, a cute, furry fetus.)


I love the abstract images one can find anywhere there are old materials. This is a wall in Jaipur, India.

Hahah! It's been a while since I had a kitten, but "holy terror perpetual motion machine" sounds like what I remember. They are irresistibly cute when they're sleeping, aren't they?

The "yin and yang" sleeping photo is hilarious!
