Chuy Cat Yawning

5.5x7.5 watercolor on 140 lb hot press paper over a pencil drawn sketch.  This is my grey tabby cat, Chuy (pronounced Chewy), who will turn 12 this year.  In the photo I took, he was just awakening from a nap on brocade and embroidered silk pillows.  Behind him is a gold and red velvet Oriental throw with gold tassels; more gold tassels can be seen on pillow edge his right paw is close to.  He was not allowed on the pillows so must have been saying "ha ha!" when I discovered him there.
