"Catnap"Lace curtains, patterned quilts and cats - three of my favorite visual elements. I've created them in a number of images and in different media of drawings and woodcuts and digital imagery.
Although this 4-color woodcut was created simply for its visual pleasure and the physical satisfaction of creating the image in the woodcut medium, it also speaks of other physical and emotional pleasures.
There is a particular level of deep calm and contentmen in lying on a downy comforter on a comfortable bed stroking the plush fur of a gently purring cat while light filters through the lace curtains.
Though there are no deep spiritual symbolic meanings, this image touches some essence that resonates with what we most enjoy about being human.
