Massage Cat

I have a masseuse who trades art for massage. She has magic hands that go the distance in getting the knots out of my muscles. It helps keep my neuromuscular problems temporarily at bay. The therapeutic massage inspired the remake of my illustration of Massage Cat for my Book of Marvelous Cats. In my revised illustration, I incorporated the art of Ekphrasis - paying homage to an earlier illustration of Cosmic Cat in the composition. It seemed fitting that Massage Cat would have an eastern style scroll of a Hindu god on his wall. Note the tabby hair on the man receiving the massage.
