Birdie? What birdie?

This is Mr. Bean, Angela's cat, all stretched out like some fat satiated king resting on pillows by a sunny window after an overindulgent meal. Hmm... I'll bet he's been up to no good? He is looking suspiciously contented, like he just got away with stealing cookies from a cookie jar. "Pussycat, pussycat where have you been?" Frightening a little mouse under her chair perhaps... or maybe a little Tweety bird or two? I inspected the scene for telltale signs of perhaps the tiny tip of a tail, or a wisp of feather at the corners of his mouth but efficiently, all incriminating evidence had been destroyed and licked clean. Pretty sneaky, Mr. Bean.

This was a fun one to paint. My favorite part is that one little red-orange spot of color on his tongue. The light was hitting it just right making it glow with transparency.

Thanks for resting here awhile... Meow!


My graphic design:
