Cats
My new greeting card rep asked me for some cat images. A specific request from a seasoned sales person seemed like a good idea. I had just finished my furry Forest Portraits, so I knew a bit about creating a fuzzy coat by tearing my translucent rice papers. All I needed were some cat shapes to which I could apply my recently acquired fur knowledge.

Friends were generous in sharing photo albums of their cats. I did not lack for reference, I just had a large editing job. Picking and choosing a varied group seemed paramount, even though that meant stepping on some paws.

I decided to use my collection of ephemera (letters, postcards, sheet music, book pages, stamps) for backgrounds.

I hope my choices please the majority of the cat coalition and that the backgrounds suit the portraits.
