This painting was done FAST, very fast on a cheap, very cheap,(about 5.00) piece of framed art I picked up at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It's 12 x 12 with a deep frame. It is liberating to paint on any old surface and let the brush fly. Gesso a piece of cardboard or an old canvas and go...sometimes my favorite paintings happen.
Junior Kitty in her studio spot. Because the table she's on is above a heater, this is one of her favorite sleeping places in the winter. Junior is also known as Schnook. The name Schnook has evolved from a name to a noun; in that she is a schnook and cats that look like her are schnooks, it is a verb; in that she schnooks around or she's 'schnooking'. It is also an adjective in that she (or another schnook) is schnookish. And I suppose it could be an adverb too, as in "Schnooks is schnookishly schnookin'"
