Visual Description

This oil on canvas is a little larger than a poster and vertically oriented. A fluffy black and white kitten reclines on its left side on a plush, aqua-blue, velveteen pillow. It stares bright-eyed to your right. Piled in the bottom right corner of the composition is a light pink ribbon with a shiny gold bell attached. The kitten and pillow make up the bottom half of the composition while the remaining background is very dark brown-black.
