"JJ with Sunflowers"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel 8" x 10"

What, you were expecting a motorcycle piece? That would have been the logical choice but as you know, I am not a logical guy. I like to keep you guessing and JJ was lobbying for some face time. He was channeling his inner Van Gogh and I thought it only fitting to oblige him. The cerulean blue ribbon dissecting flora from fauna amused me.

I believe that handsome(and my favorite) boy is on your kitchen counter... Lovely as always

Mark Adams said...

Thanks, Diane. You certainly know your granite counter tops. Baltic brown is a challenge to paint.

My daughter and I thought this was a photograph until we looked closely at the flowers. What great attention to detail on that handsome boy. Glad you are back - your blog is a treat!

Mark Adams said...

Thanks, Margaret. How is the cork collection going?

Margaret Bednar said...

Haven't even filled the bottom of the jar I'm keeping them in. Need to get serious about collecting, I think. Cooked a whole chicken the other day and when I came across the wishbone, I thought of you. Ha - how crazy is that!

I bet you made a wish and broke it anyway {;-)>

Love the sense of implied motion. The crossed legs of the cat seem to mimic a dancer--that poised, frozen moment between movements.

Mark Adams said...

Thanks, Don. JJ was practicing his Demi-plie in the 3rd position.

Dean Grey said...

I just adore the crossed legs!

Thanks, Dean. JJ is not always quite so elegant. In fact, for a cat, he is more than usually clumsy. He makes up for it by being wonderfully sweet.
