Both paintings are set in the afternoon. It's probably a typical hot afternoon and there's an hour or two respite before the next 'to-do' list. The ceiling fan is spinning, and there is a slight breeze from the opened windows and doors. Light filters into the living room and the coolest place to be is on the roughly-cemented floor, with a couple of colorful cushions thrown in. A tall glass with ice cubes in your favorite drink, a book or magazine in hand, your body relaxed and at ease... and with the whiff of such luxuriant concoction of delight on display, the cat irresistibly appears and snuggles in, all ready for a belly rub...
Some of my older paintings with the same theme....Rushes of Red 1
Painted these two back in 2003. Now I'm regretting not taking proper shots of them. I'm in the mood to paint these two again, the back and front of a cheongsam but in a more abstract style, and maybe sneak in parts of the cat somewhere haha!
