Looking at historical artworks takes me right back to that time; I start daydreaming about that moment with the artist and his subject. What were they talking about? What did the artist leave out? How long was the subject sitting before their pets jumped into their lap for a cuddle?

I created these "reimagined" artworks using my cats, and the artwork I love and admire. We run a little TNR (trap-neuter-release) program in our neighborhood and kept these four kittens when they were trapped. They were difficult to tame but we fell in love with them as we got to know them!

I hope you enjoy what I came up with! I'm always interested in working with others' pets too!
