Hello everyone. I’m completely and totally smitten with artist Peter Alexander. I admit it. I love his Los Angeles cityscapes, his palm tree abstracts, his stunning painting of the full moon (posted last night.) But he won my heart with this series above.
He created these drawings — pastel on paper — in 1987 as an ode to his beloved black cat, Romance. Maybe it’s because we have two black cats. (I love them!) A couple years ago, my young daughter decided to create an almanac of cat positions:
There was the french fry, the donut, the vulture, the croissant and — the most beloved of all — the bread loaf position.
Makes me happy to think about it. These drawings reminded me.0
