Pencil on lined notebook paper, 8.5" x 11"
Scooter the Cat smiles happily as he poses on a hassock in the foreground. Background elements and details, from left to right: Pantry closet door; doorway into kitchen; kitchen table and chair, with hanging light (turned on) above; Joseph; parlor lightswitch; endtable with lamp; couch with tissue box and tissue, above; far right: edge of coffee table with remote control holder and oversized novelty pen.
This ultra-realistic composition displays a layout that exactly corresponds to the area depicted. The smile on Scooter's face lends an air of whimsy to his serenely Sphinx-like pose. Note the detail on the lamp base and tissue box.
