Oh my goodness, this kitty has gotten itself into quite the situation! Thanks Genevieve!
Here’s what Genevieve has to say about her painting “I’ve finished my second piece for Purrcasso 2010. This one is called “Rescue Party.” It actually stemmed from a sketch idea I had that illustrates the caption, “Where did you last see it?” In the original idea I imagined a little girl looking for her cat and a team of firefighters were searching through ridiculous places; unbeknownst to them, the “cat” is actually a giant monster hidden in the tree one of them is climbing. The idea evolved from a team of firefighters to the girl dressed as a fireman ordering a bunch of animals trying (and failing) to climb a tree. My friend asked, “But dogs can’t climb trees… what if you had them form a ladder to the top?” And this is what I came up with!”
