This kitty is totally by chance. I used a thick brush of gesso to paint a kitty on white paper. The interior of that white gesso’d kitty is the final orangey kitty that you see here.
Update on my mom:
She looks forward to these cards that I send her. When I am on the phone with her, she talks about them. She makes up stories about them. She compares them to her cats. Mailing her these cards is helping her in a way because she has a connection with them. She says when she’s feeling sad, she looks through her book of cats. Dementia can be hard on the patient and it’s little things like these cats that make all the difference.
