This Tuxedo Cat, whose name is Sylvester, is becoming my muse, this is my third painting of him (see Cats). He is so serene and Buddhistic as he finds that perfect spot of sun in our backyard. Like me he loves the sun, sky and flowers, and like me he respects the birds who feed on the wild berry bush over his head. He is too busy dreaming to chase after them (honest!). Like all males, he looks good in a tuxedo. I hope I have captured his special quality of inner peace.
