Oskar's Catalogued Dreaming in the living room.

One month ago today, Oskar my Maine Coon cat unexpectedly died. I was inconsolable, he was beautiful, and a big character and I miss him.

Do grief and creativity mix? Well, I have tried to lose myself in the process and the small sketch above was one idea that came forth. I may produce a larger painting based on it one day.

I collected Oskar’s Catalogued Dreaming yesterday from the gallery and it now has pride of place in my living room.

Namaste Oskar . . .
