Why cats, Jen? Cats are creatures full embedded in the now. Cats focus intensely on the present moment and do not worry about the outcome, allowing them to fully cherish each and every second. A lesson we all could learn from!

Why watercolor as a medium? Watercolor to me is the most perfect medium for expressing that which defies expression. Watercolor captures a moment the way our mind remembers an event long past...a little bit fuzzy around the edges, light dappled moments in time. I love the way watercolor pigments have their own personality... they separate, layer and combine as they wish and you can only follow their lead when painting. In this painting, I explored washes of watercolor exploring hte reaction with salts and alcohol for an unpredictable outcome. The drawing was finished with a white Posca pen for additional whiskery detail.
