Cat Rock

The artist is Alika Kalaida. She came to the Transformation Without Apocalypse symposium in Corvallis the weekend of February 15, 2014. When I was signing books, she put something in a little paper sack down on the table and said “I made this for you, I hope you like it.”

This is what came out of the bag: a portrait (from photos on my site) of my cat Pard. The painting is on a smooth heavy rock about four inches long.

It is so lifelike, so Pardlike, and so beautiful that it makes me laugh with delight every time I look at it.

Alika has a lot of sites & mentions on Google, this is one:
