“Girl with a Cat”. The painting is very unique because it is a mixture of folk art and cartoon. The girls eyes are big and gripping and so are the cat’s eyes. They want to draw you in and invite you into a fantasy life. The girl wears a halo of colourful grass while the cat’s hair forms a similar shape in the form of a bib around the neck. Both beings are fun to see and have a very human energy. This message of this painting is, “Do not take everything so seriously, think out of the box” .
My mother, who is a tapestry weaver, really liked this painting. She made a beautiful tapestry based on it that is just the same size as the original. It is included here.
