seth fitts shows a thing cats do so well

They sit there and stare at nothing in particular, your cats.  They stare at this nothing with great concentration.  Why? Artist Seth Fitts divined it; he titled this piece "Orange Cat Sitting, Knowing."  I especially appreciate that this piece is created on paper from old books, which lends a feel of compare and contrast to the cat's reverie.  Think of all the things cats know that we can't.
Fitts' work has a timeless sense that reminds me of the adventure I find in most any Paul Klee work, indicating an entire viewpoint with the least detail possible.  Like Klee, he reminds me that there is an entire dimension to a creature's being and perception that is alien to me, but no less beautiful for that.  Have a look, for example, at Haloed Blue Bird, Hovering or Cloud Window (Tufted Bird).  His DeviantArt gallery has much more to see.  And please visit his blog.
