Untitled 159

Pastel on PastelMat, approx. 5" x 6".

The other day Fennec decided to climb the fit-ball that I was sitting on (in lieu of a chair when working at a desk)...with his claws.

It immediately ripped in multiple places and all the cats spent the next hour or so, fascinated and a bit scared, alternately running away and then coming back bravely to whack at it with a cautious paw, watching it deflate and listening to it hisssssssssss...  

If you ever saw the old film classic The Red Balloon, well, it was kind of like that.

(Yes, it's dead and I had to order another one. I hope he stays away from it this time.)

Cats can cost you quite a bit of money in wrecked stuff, but at least they usually entertain you while doing it.


In Bihar, India.

Wow! Love this one Jala!!
Do you ever work from these to make BIG ones?

Hi Loriann! Thank you very much. This one seems like it would appeal to you--the colors...
Making a new work based on a previous work never seems to work out well for me, so I've stopped trying.
