I’ve been hoping to use that piece of cardboard with the holes for years. It is hard to see in the photo, but I echoed the shape throughout the painting, and in the sky. Actually I think I will have to retouch the sky as some of my work got smeared when I was putting a gel over it.
Yes, I made this picture with a plastic fork, among other things.
The cat was a steady studio companion.
