#16 - 30 Prints in 30 Days (Silver Tabby Whiskers)

"Silver Tabby Whiskers"
8" x 6" (image) 10" x 7.5" (paper)
Water based ink on Rives BFK
Edition of 4

I never tire of looking at such sparkling, velvety stripes. Up close and cropped, the intersection of the Tom cat's jaw, hind-leg, and side read like a bird's eye view of a landscape. Highlights of white whiskers disturb the shimmering landscape like scratches on an old black and white photograph. The gesture of the stripes implies movement, but still they are harnessed in this image, and still as stone.
