This commission was made for a neighbor to give in gratitude to a bass-playing, Qigong instructor. I was told to give him a cigar, glasses, and to make him cool. Here’s his picture:
It took three tries (first one was too feminine, second one looked like a “black dude with a tail” (it had no ears)), but it was worth it, I think.
If you’re interested in Jon Voight or Qigong in the Boston area, you can find more here: art-energy.org.
This is great! Whimsical, and yet the cat is serious about his playing.
Thanks Jane…. Did a certain cat-lover you know happen to see him, too?
I showed the cat to Ariel and she said “Oooh! I want it!” I told her it was a gift for someone else.
I like that you added the picture of the instructor. You certainly have captured some of his essence from the photo.
I *love* this! And my friend Morna included the Cool Cat in her ‘Friday Flickr Favorites’ yesterday – a wonderful visual collage she puts together on fridays – here: http://mornacrites-moore.blogspot.com/2009/07/friday-flickr-favorites_17.html
Thank you, Diane! I have enjoyed the connection to Morna through you! Thanks for that, too…
