Asleep, 5x7" Acrylic on canvas
©2010, Helen Read


This - is my cat, Junebug. Sleeping. sometimes she's just a ball of stripes and feet! Here she is, curled up and asleep, tucked into a back leg.

The turquoise blue you see is the under painting. I really liked the effect and that it gave some life to the simplicity of her black, gray, and white coloring.

I really like this painting. The use of the stripes to engage the eye into a rhythm is so nice.
