A Day for Dreaming

two black cats sleeping
Mimi and Mewsette in repose.

Cool, quiet, misty, dark; after a series of hot days with fans running 24/7 and everything seeming louder than normal, we had a day of rest today. Mimi is still ensconced as Queen of the White Box, each of her children stopping by for an audience, and a mutual face wash and nap, with the Queen. Mimi watches me while Mewsette ponders…what Mewsette ponders, the light from the north window reflecting from the trees tinting the scene with a serenity of green.

Below, I used the Cutout filter and then filled in odd areas to flatten the background and removed other areas of color so that Mimi’s eyes would be the first thing to see.
