Cats on Red Roses Couch

10x15 mixed media done today of two cats lounging and sleeping on red roses collage.  Initially sketched with India ink, no pencil, on watercolor paper it has a background of watercolor.  Montana acrylic markers are the golden yellow ochre along with some black and white.  Large areas are black ink.  Other collage is patterned envelope and has white marker on top.  Since cats, at least mine, are always on a bed of roses, the red collaged dollar store gift wrap seemed appropriate for these two rescues.  (This is a redo of a 2012 ink/wc image)

Thank you Billie and Laura for commenting! Cats can be a pain but are a joy and a thrill most of the time.
