Hungry Cat Contemporary Pictorial Beaded handbag
Contemporary style handbag depicting a hungry cat eating a slice of Western New York Pizza. Very modern and almost pop art in style, this pictorial bag combines many techniques in its overall creation. A fun and whimsical manner in which my beadwork continues to evolve while having fun in its creations. The large tassel on bottom corner sort of represents an ideal and major cat toy, in which my own Cat (whom this bag is a depiction of) would love to play with....a Cats DREAM! This piece is to evoke Fun, cheer, whimsical and charm in the heavy times we are currently in. I feel portraying things in a happy manner that makes me happy, can spur someone else to be happy too. We need good things to think about at this time, and this is an ode to sheer happiness!
