Spot Enough For You?

The leopard’s eyes,
They mesmerize
He reaches out to paralyze
His prey that hides
Behind the slides
And doors of tempered zoo-glass.

A study for "Leopard's Eyes" a work in progress.

Donna's Theories

Zoie and Jack--"Played Out"

Musings for the Illustration Friday topic "Theory":

Gravity--Gravity gets stronger as the day gets longer.

Matter--Kid’s stuff and cat toys multiply when you’re not looking.

Time--Time accelerates in direct proportion to the amount of work you have to accomplish. Conversely, if you only have a little to do, it expands to fill the time available, so you still don’t get done early!
(Note: The tired kittens demonstrating this week's topic are grown now, but still full of trouble! The above is a commissioned portrait in acrylic of their "babies" for two great little girls of a friend and colleague of mine.)
