"From Sea To Shining Sea", Happy New Year

It's a new year. This painting of a neighborhood stray cat, intends to make a positive statement. I used a stable composition with the tip of the mouse's nose, the gold finial of the flag pole and the foot of the pitcher forming an equilateral triangle. Stripes and sinewy curves are repeated. The path winds down to the Atlantic. It is sunset or sunrise.
