Lilac Point Ragdoll Cat
6x8 oil on cotton canvas panel
Something has interrupted a nap. A bit more staring and she'll drop back to sleep.
This is a lilac-point ragdoll cat, so named because they go limp when you pick them up. We are not owned by one.
We are owned by a long-haired tortoise-shell and white cat, Precious, who will rip your arms off if you pick her up. There is a cat-psychological category, tortitude, which Precious has studied and adopted tortitude in all points: talkative, short-fused, strong-willed.
(This paintng is my first foray into Dailypaintworks's auction. I'm starting it at $20.)
