photo of Miss Cali, the calico cat

This collage painting is more than just a portrait of Cali, it also is a remembrance of my mother. The “quilt” was pieced together from snippets of photos of people and places dear to her as well as bits of her favorite mystery novel, letters and gallery announcements for her photography exhibits. Since Mom was a mathematician, I included a statistical equation around the border.
