artist: jennifer lewis

Let's face it. You watch your cat on the hunt, and you're proud of him/her for being smart and powerful. At the same time, you can't help but feel a little sorry for the cute little furry thing that gets outsmarted. But what are you going to do? That's nature - it's no picnic.

This mix of the dark and the cute I found aptly illustrated in this work by Jennifer Lewis: Cheese Shop (Acrylic on board, 2008).

Jennifer Lewis's website is http://www.mio.8k.com/. You'll find more excellent work there and her artist bio, which drops the perfect namecheck of Edward Gorey and Beatrix Potter.
