Welcome to my blog! This is my space to discuss works in progress, and to share my experiences as an artist and writer in the world. I'm starting with a recent favorite photo of Violet, my honey Michael's kitten. She and Fat Bob, a littermate, joined his household this summer. Violet is a brave and aggressive little kitty. If I hadn't seen her do this deer kissing thing in person, I never would've believed that this photo was real. But I've seen her go up to deer, sneaking up to them like a tiger until they sniff each other suspiciously. If the deer get uncomfortable, they stamp their feet, just to remind her that even though she's related to big cat species, they indeed are much bigger than she is. Luckily, these deer are pretty used to human traffic, so a little cat is merely a curiosity to them. I love Violet's fearlessness. She's no shrinking Violet.
