These are all ideas I've had for this painting kind of spontaneously this weekend. The cat's dark house.  Mystery and alchemy.
 I've been looking a lot at Russian painted facades.  I love the detail.  This house is walled from the sea, as in my previous painting.
 A mermaid in the ocean.
 She holds a seashell.
 Ever faithful and stoic companion.  Sees all, knows all and is silent.
 Homage to the blues.  Inspired by Mississippi John Hurt.
Homage to Van Gogh.
