I made this postcard in April, 2022, for my granddaughter. Her name is Leona, and that means “lion”, and a cat is a tiny lion, right? Just like her.
I think the cat and mouse in this picture are just meeting, and they will become friends.
I did this image in India ink, and acrylic markers, and a little bit of pen, I think – on a watercolor postcard.
LOL yes, you’re right of course. I interpreted it much differently, the mouse being the tiny lion standing up to the cat. I like your interpretation better. 🙂
Oh, I love your interpretation! And also, I love it that the image can have more than one story. I really like it when it can say different things to different people.
I love the expression on the cat’s face. Neither of my cats are effective mousers so I think this captures the look of a cat who is clueless about how to respond to this meeting. I like the idea that they will become friends but I have a feeling the mouse will be the dominant member of that partnership.
Tiny lion – how sweet for a kitty – yes it is amazing that lions and domestic kitties are sort of related! That is a wonderful image you created for your granddaughter!
I love the cat’s expression! Unimpressed cat is my favourite cat.
Thank you. Once again I reflect on how perfectly the cat manages its life. Every cat, I mean.
