A young Persian cat is attracted to a very unusual blue butterfly. Maybe this is because the butterfly is the same color as his beautiful blue eyes.

I had started this one a while ago and forgot about it. I liked the loose style of the first painting session so I tried to keep that looseness throughout the finished painting.
