I have always greatly appreciated the easy-going and leisurely nature of cats. In this painting, I used acrylics to depict my cat. My cat is a great comfort in my life. I decided to make him pink to symbolize his playful and carefree personality. He is displayed in a relaxed state. This represents how important it is to one’s mental health to take the time to lay back and relax. The healing power of a cat’s purring inspired me to swirl acrylics diluted with water. I used of various colors to illustrate how smoothly a cat’s purrs can cover everything around it until all is calm. The yellow represents positivity, the blue tranquility and trust, and the green peace, balance, and health. All of the things the colors represent are gifts my cat has given me unconditionally which have improved my mental health and my life.
