DANTE IN PAW RELEAF!

I'm using a turn of phrase here for this foray into Dante art.  "Bas relief" (alternately called "low relief") is a type of sculptural art in which the subjects project slightly from the background. 

When it comes to Dante, however, I thought that using "Paw Releaf" was a little more relevant.  After all he is sitting on a bed of leaves and periodically moving them around with his paws.

The picture frame, itself, actually appears to be a good example of "Bas Relief", while the main subject (my Dante) has been painted in "Paw Releaf".















Leaf it up to Dante to give you that feeling of relief  -- one way or another!

NO RELEAF IN SIGHT FOR DANTE!

Dante just can't believe his eyes!


 There are leaves HERE ...


... THERE ...



... and EFURRYWHERE!!!



Since autumn makes Dante a little wingy, he's all set to make his great escape!
(Don't worry, he'll be back for breakfast.)

DANTE: RUSTIC AND PROUD OF IT!

Dante appreciates the rustic nature of the outdoors.


"I am absolootly against any anti-rust PURRoducts", says Dante who prefers to go natural!

I guess that makes him an anti-anti-rust PURRponent.


"Ain't I just?"

DANTE HAS A SCENTS OF HIMSELF!

Dante's senses are heightened by a certain aroma.

"Sniff, sniff ... MUSTY!"


 "Sniff, Sniff ... EARTHY!"


"Sniff, sniff ... smells like an armpit -- that's me all over!"

DANTE IN A POOL OF LIGHT!

Yesterday I had one of my best photoshoots ever.  Usually I am lucky to get one stellar picture in a batch, but in this case I had a quite a few; five of which are shown hereunder.

It was mid-afternoon and the sun was bright, but couldn't penetrate the shadows left by the trees overhead.  Dante decided to make a nest in a pile of leaves directly in the pool of light -- to great effect.

Dante and nature conspired to provide me with a remarkable opportunity for some unparalleled shots.

Witness ...


The Kitty Pool!








Colour Explosion! 









Serene in green!









Orange is the new black!









The look of releaf!
