White 5

Number 5 of 8. Oil and cold wax on museum panel, 6" x 6".


Goofball in the laundry basket.
And little monkey curled up on the couch. He looks like a baby panda there.

Gadjo is growing at about an inch a day...or at least it seems that way.

Gadjo is a very confident, self-possessed kitten. When he's not being all attitudinal about what he wants or doesn't want, he can be very sweet.


In the state of Bihar, India.

Hi Jala - I'm enjoying your white abstracts. It's nice to see the series unfold... Kyoko was nearly in tears this morning over Gadjo's cuteness. Maybe you heard all the "oooohs!!!" there in Colorado.

Attitudinal. Mother-speak for bratty.

Meant to also say how much I like the picture of Gadjo on the chair. Now, that's a painting!

Hi Brian M - (Konnichi-wa to Kyoko-san, too.) Glad you like the abstracts. I don't think many people do. :D But I do (and you do, and Suzanne Berry does), so that's all that matters, right?
Gadjo is very "awwwwww"-worthy. He's so cute that he seriously looks like a toy that happens to be alive.
Why do I feel like if you guys get more cats, I'll be single-pawedly responsible?

Sam - Thanks, that's The Husband's photo of Gadjo on the chair. It looks a little hazy to me--he likes that lens and it always makes things look a bit foggy to me, like you're viewing through a whole lot of atmosphere rather than just a yard of it, but what can ya do, he likes the lens.
It's true, he can be very bratty. Gadjo, I mean. Well, and the Other One too.

That photo of Rumi in the basket - what is it with cats doing nerdy things like that? My other cat used to sit in the [bigger, deeper] laundry basket for no reason and cram himself into boxes that were too small. Cats: a non-stop source of cheap entertainment.

I can see the "attitudinal" in Gadjo's chair picture...but then he's got the lovey-dovey eyes in the cheek-to-cheek picture. Beyond adorable.

I will look forward to seeing these small abstracts together as a series.
