This is an original hand-painted Etegami painting on a soft washi card. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines simple images with thoughtful words. The quote on this one is from “The Cat and the Moon,” a poem by W.B. Yeats (1865 – 1939).

  • Thanks you, Sally! I grew up with cats and kittens, but had to give up pets with fur or feathers when I married a man with allergies and asthma. : (
