Cat Nightmare

Cat Nightmare
I had so much trouble with this postcard.  I had done the background....easy peasy.  I added the cat because I loved the photograph.  But what to do next....background done, middle ground done!  Then I found some wonderful vintage pieces on a French website.  That brought about Cat Nightmare. Actually it should be Stella's Cat Nightmare. Foreground done!

Stella, the woman in the foreground, had a reoccurring nightmare about a cat!  I had a reoccurring nightmare when I was a child.  To this day I am deathly afraid of snakes.  I can not go to the reptile house at the Seattle Zoo.  I have to close my eyes when watching a television show where a snake appears.  And I hate being surprised in a magazine.

So masterful, John!
I love the way you combine,
often unlike things into a commanding image.
It all works so well, the balance, the 3!
Magical!
Note taken: no snakes.

This is great! I love that cat. I'm no fan of snakes, either.
