Herding Cats


Oil.    This was for a self-portrait show with the art group for which I am currently the president, which given the independent nature of artists, is like "herding cats".  This view is set in our studio space, with the cats largely made up, but each representing some of the current artist members.  The cat under the skeleton drawing represents the doctor, an internist.  The Siamese represents the a tall, thin, older man of noble manner all respect.  The Maine Coon represents our Maine artist.  The tabby on the right with the wirerim eyes represents an artist who looks to me for guidance.  The big tabbly on the model stand on the back represents one of our models, a large lady with strawberry hair.
