“Socks (aka ‘Boots’) on the yard” by Marius

Socks
From Marius:
“This painting is of our other yard cat, Socks. She is Myrtle’s sister, the other kitty I painted. Sadly, being in prison is like being on a plantation–you don’t have any contact again if someone gets taken away. I wanted to paint our yard kitties so there would be a record to remember them by–both for me (should I ever be allowed to leave this place), and for others who used to live here and loved these cats as friends. I wanted to try to get the shadows of our strange plastic slatted fence, try to show how the shadows could actually make really pretty patterns, even though fences are ugly things in general.”
