I need to feast my eyes on my favorite things: art and pets, rolled up together like a peanut butter cup (Mm, right?).
How about this lovely "Tom Cat" by the Dutch artist Frans Koppelaar (1943 - )? Koppelaar currently prides himself on not belonging to any art movement, and painting with a simple, straightforward realism. Now I am fond of many styles and theories of art, so I think there's lots of different ideas to enjoy. Today this was the one I found. Ah, I can almost feel that fur.
Koppelaar's website is here (but he doesn't do many pets).
