About the artwork
Jelly Bean is about as cute as cute can be and he knows how to use it.
This photo has a popularity of its own—what are the chances I’d catch Bean at his toilette? In fact, the very old bathroom was being renovated after a disaster involving all those leaky things. The four black kittens had been fostered in that room and just presumed you were supposed to drink from leaky faucets because it was so fun. They were in there immediately as soon as it was safe, Jelly Bean sitting in a completely new vintage sink in a different spot, waiting for the salvaged faucet to drip. And admiring himself in my temporary mirror.
Who knew that vintage mint green sink would photograph in such a rich tone, especially when filled with a black cat? From the time I installed the new bathroom, the black cats owned it and the contrast of their black fur with the mint green fixtures and white walls and floor has been stunning and created some of the most favorite photos in my cat collection.
The set includes two familiar images, but really focuses on one kitty—Jelly Bean! “Gosh, I’m Cute” pictures Jelly Bean admiring himself in the mirror long offered as a greeting card, and “Have a Drink With Family” shows the Fantastic Four all drinking from the sink faucet at the same time. The new designs are “Composition in Green and Black”, offered by request but one of my favorite atmospheric images of Jelly Bean dozing in the sun on the edge of the sink, and “Toe Cleaning in Green and Black”, the Bean once again in a close-up capture of activity with the mint green sink reflecting on Bean’s black fur and paws.
