"Cat Loaf"

4 color reduction
4" x 4"(image) 7.5" x 7.5" (paper)
Water-based inks on Stonehenge
Edition of 6

A cat will never fully blend into the furniture because of its eyes. They pop out like a red
scarf in a field of green grass. Eyes that stare deep into mine and follow my every move. Eyes for communication: to greet, to warn, to woo. Front-facing eyes evolved for zeroing in on prey. Eyes big and round, and darkly outlined. Eyes like owls. Eyes like a human child; all at once vulnerable, haunting, and intense.
