I was awake again in the night so I decided to listen to a deep sleep meditation tape by Louise Hay on YouTube . I must have kept falling asleep but in one moment a picture came into my mind.
It was an eye, I remember feeling happy because it’s a long time since I’ve seen anything in a half asleep/ half awake moment and in the past it was usually sunflowers 🌻 that I would see.
I watched the eye come into a clearer focus and then it turned into a cats eye and when I looked deeper into the eye I saw the eye was actually the world. I think this is because I had been thinking about all my paintings which actually feature a cat looking into the distance and pondering on its meaning I got my answer. The cat is looking out into the world, visiting many places, crossing seas.
Therefore I decided to paint my cat Mia looking and seeing the world in her eye.
