I love the 'Why Cats Paint' book, and even believe it-sort of. I definitely
am amused by it. I just found a companion book. It spoofs famous
artists/paintings and had a cat element to it. For example, it shows Edward
Hopper's Night Watch from a different angle and there is a cat lurking in the
shadow watching two mice just outside of the cafe. Another one is O'Keeffe
with a cat skull rather than her traditional skulls. Mondrian with two small
squares and a line that goes slightly over an edge placed in a composition to
create a cat. Anyway, it's funny and includes bios of the 'cats' who created
the art in the back of the book just like the 'why cats paint' book.
