The Little Sunflower

The Little Sunflower

This sunny morning photo reminded me of this painting I did of Cookie many years ago, from a photo I took of her years before that. She still likes her morning sunbath in the light through the back door, all these years later, and she’s still my Little Sunflower.

My floor is a little worse for the wear, though.

Real sun worshippers, all of my cats wait for the sun to enter the house in the morning and take their appointed spots. The brilliance of that first light and its reflections around the room, plus the contrast of all the exaggerated straight-line shapes with the organic shape of little Cookie and her shadow inspired this one.

This is available as a note card in the set entitled My Cats in the Sun, available in my Marketplace.
