Maugham, 24 x 20 inches, oil on canvas, 2022, painting superimposed over several painting, a blue cat with orange dots

Maugham, 24 x 20 inches, oil on canvas, 2022. Detail shot below. 4 paintings layered on top of one another. The cat is inspired by artwork I made in Lisbon in a month-long artist residency last fall. I focused on animals found in traditional Portuguese art (blue and white tiles, puppets, ceramics) and made my own versions.
