So, this is a color study for a bigger piece. It is an illustration of a fond memory; my mom reading me bedtime stories before she got sick. I took some artistic liberties here to make the scene warm and cozy. The cats were certainly there, however there would have been about three more... and we would have been on a deflating water bed and my mom would have had been smoking a cigarette with an over flowing ash tray nearby. Despite these little things, it's a good memory so I wanted to illustrate it as such.
