Is the Kitty Friendly or Not?

A while back I got some pads of blank postcards, watercolor paper in composition. This image is done on one of those and is about 4″ x 6″. I used India ink and acrylic ink. It was made in April, 2019.

      Yes. Cats mean love to me, even when they are maintaining their aloofness or their noses in the air. It’s the way they are and somehow I feel the same way – contentment – in their presences.

    Perfect picture of cat ambivalence, Claudia! Of our year-old sibling kitten-cats, one (Woody) is a complete extrovert and always tries for extra attention, looks for a lap, jumps on counters he knows are forbidden, leans against my body in bed. The other (Bean) is slinky + mysterious and kind of wants us to pet her, but, when the hand reaches toward her, she does exactly what the cat you’ve shown us does: Yes But No; Yes And No; or Try Again Tomorrow. Honestly, at moments it can be frustrating, but I love them both and got a big kick out of your insightful rendering.

      Thank you. I have had cats in my life for 40 years and each one different, of course, in personality but always totally cat. I love cats and find them fascinating, and I love the way you described the decisive indecisiveness: yes but no, etc.!

      Thank you. The brush and ink continue to intrigue me and they seem to make drawing easier for me, I don’t know why – it may just be the nice swoopy feel of the brush and the flow of the ink.

        When I was very young I used to go to my life drawing class with brush and ink and a roll of rice paper. I wonder what ever happened to those drawings. I love the feeling of it too.
