Two Siamese Cats lay serenely soaking up the sun in a bed of pale pink roses. One is decidedly older then the other. I’m thinking that it is mother and kitten because they have the same intense blue eyes.

Matted in a 5”X7” single black matt with a foam core backer.

On a spring night in a moonlit rose garden, one might find a little magic, or at least maybe a tiny bit of inspiration.

I have a lot of 5” X 7” single black matts with foam core backers. They have openings of 3” X 5”. So I thought I would do a few paintings to fit these matts.
Here is the first one.
