Artist's description:

This painting is about someone who is close to a fantastic dinner but jumping for it would probably result in drowning.

Blue hungry cat peers curiously into the area of the fishing pool. The painting's humorous atmosphere is combined with light and bright tones of blue to bring joy to it's owner.

This painting is a crossing milestone of my three collections: Galleries, Cats of famous painters and The Blue Garden Collection.

I started painting it in the airplane (limited size and color range) on my way from Lithuania as my souvenir on local National Art Gallery but as the flight was too short I didn't finish it and took it with me to a spa town called Harrogate, UK. In the UK there was no time to complete it but when seeing David Hockney's exhibition in Tate Britain in London, I got at least the absolute and final idea of what it should look like. I found my time to finish it yesterday in Kersko, CZ - the region of my beloved writer Bohumil Hrabal.

Why David Hockney? His iconic figures at the swimming pool symbolising human relationships and blue terasses with repeated patterns (e.g. red pots), broken perspective that curators see as deeper purpose. Of course, there is (not joking now).

Why cat? Cat is the essence of something you never really capture or own. Cat always has at least 17 creative ideas how to escape. I have this temptation to capture it in my paintings.

Why Lithuanian National Art Gallery and curtains? You have to walk to one of the top floors to understand.

Why Bohumil Hrabal? Because his way of seeing, understanding and commenting the Life has a strong influence on my way of perception.
