Thinking back over the years, my cats all gave me some delightful moments, but there was always a downside. Nicky, my Devon Rex, without warning , liked to like to jump
up on my drawing board while I was painting. You can imagine what kind of reaction I had. Fortunately he rarely did much damage because watercolors dry quickly.
Living in the country at the time, we rarely had any mice when our cats were on duty.
We didn’t realize their importance until they had all passed away and the mice ran rampant. But keeping a litter box around does have its downside.
In the past I had painted one of my cats on the keys of our piano, and there was a very positive response to the painting. So when a neighbors cat visited us and plunked herself on our piano, I ran to grab my camera and took a few quick shots, which inspired this painting, which I have titled “Kitten on the Keys”
