Painting and Puns

In addition to working a lot, I've found some time to paint this summer.

Summer Haze

"You know how the time flies

Only yesterday was the time of our lives

We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days."

I always think of my angel-kitty Pippin when I hear this song by Adele. This painting was for him.

Now for the pun... One day, my orange tabbycat, Karma, wandered by, and I was struck by just how geometric his spots and stripes are.  And then I thought about how popular ikat prints are lately.

And this is what happened. 

I think my next painting might be a Mewzanni.  Followed by a Pawsley.

Finally, I'm working on something more autumnal.  The working title is "Autumn Fire."  I can't show the whole painting, but here's a preview.
