A dark and quiet Sunday afternoon led to long, still naps in the shadows of the afternoon bedroom. Jelly Bean uses Giuseppe as a pillow, which Sunshine curls in a tight ball by the pillows. Needless to say, I didn’t really have to hurry to catch this one—they really weren’t going anywhere, and in fact were barely moving.
Truly, seeing black cats sleeping like lumps of unmoving laundry on my bed is hardly unusual, but it was that very stillness, the anonymous shapes, the deep shadows and tentative highlights I did my best to capture here in black and white pastels.
