Day 31 of the Portrait Project: Playing with Cats.

Decided to play around with the kitten creatures today, as it was a cozy night in, and the down comforter & warm fuzzies were more appealing than going out into the Castro streets.  I wanted to toy with some abstracts, use movement, and practice some techniques that a friend recently showed me.  Our kitties are a year old this month.  They have tortured us more than anything... scratched up furniture, peed & pooped in awkward places, left fuzz in every corner, cost us a month's rent in vet bills, and meowed us awake at 3 in the morning one too many times... BUT, they are also the coolest, friendliest, quirkiest, lovable creatures around, and when we're not dreaming of what life was like pre-cat, we actually adore the hell out of the little fcukers.  I'm really not certain which orange furry this one is, could be Cass, could be Dodo.  I like to think it's a mixture of both siblings, a little cray-cray, a little aloof.
