“Snegourchka (Sneggy) Gubelmann”, oil on canvas, 16″x20″, private collection, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory
Gentle and sweet Sneggy was a joy to paint
Jellicle Cats are black and white,
Jellicle Cats (as I said) are small;
If it happends to be a stormy night
They will practise a caper or two in the hall.
If it happens the sun is shining bright
You would say they had nothing to do at all:
They are resting and saving themselves to be right
For the Jellicle Moon and the Jellicle Ball.~T.S. Eliot
“Pumpkin”, oil on canvas, 16″x20″, private collection, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory
Pumpkin is a loquacious feline who rules her household with an iron paw and a big heart. She can be found perched on her aerie within the realm of Pumpkinistan, over which she reigns, or else demanding food at her appointed place in the kitchen.
“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”~Jean Cocteau
