Composition in Black and Green: 2011

Composition in Black and Green

Jelly Bean enjoys being washed in spring sunlight as I enjoy how the pattern of the window muntins falls across the wall, the sink and him.

Even though none of us is Irish, we’ll be celebrating this week with pictures of stunning black cats with those vintage mint green bath fixtures. And perhaps one with orange instead, you’ll see why later this week.

In the meantime, what you can’t hear in this photo is Jelly Bean’s loud, vigorous purr as it echoes in the sink, truly an amazing percussive technique.

A little later this year I’ll be choosing up to a dozen “Compositions in Black and Green” for a set of greeting cards, notebook covers and “black cat wear”, tees, bags and other useful items. Remember the ones you like and let me know.

I’ll do this again this year as well! Let me know your favorite images of black cats for “black cat wear”.

    Bernadette, I went to your Etsy shop — could you re-print the “Compositions in Black and Green” cards? I would love to purchase a set of those, especially if the photo above is part of the set. I just wish I could hear that purr!

      Susan, certainly! I just have the one entitled, “God, I’m Cute” where JB is looking in the mirror. I’ll let you know when they are up!
