Sometimes a personal connection with a subject makes it incredibly hard to capture in a truly representational form.  My brain tells me “I know what that cat looks like”…my brush listens to my brain instead of trusting my eyes, and the next thing you know,  you don’t even recognize the work in front of you. Thankfully, I took this one slow…adding a wash here, a wash there…I knew at some point it would speak to me, and it did.
