Have you ever lost something and found it a long time later? Well, here’s one cat I remember drawing way back in 2004. I found this little guy in a zip file that somehow got saved from disaster. So I know he’s not very well drawn but this art came at a time in my life when I almost died. I was recovering from major surgery and was trying to remember who I was as I had lost a lot of my memory.
I remember sitting in a little travel trailer and painting these little cats by the hundreds. I painted some on wood and some on paper. Most were just simple watercolors no bigger than 6 square inches. I did some on scratchboard too. Some survived. They helped me clear my head, get my bearings and be optimistic for the future. I love cats and this therapy did work.
Eventually a lot of my memory came back but I still don’t know what day or month it is most of the time. My friends are very patient with me.
Here is the little guy on some products.
