8 x 10 acrylics
Tripod's attention span is pretty limited, especially when in the house. Outside however, he can focus something in his sight and stand perfectly still for the longest time. Especially if the object of his 'affection' is a mouse or a rabbit.
In that frozen window of time all his energy is focused, he barely blinks. The only movement is the very tip of his tail twitching and sometimes a slow motion movement as he inches forward. He, like most animals, believes that if you move in slow motion, nothing can see you. You become invisible.
Tripod also believes that he can become invisible if he takes something that doesn't belong to him, destroys something or pees on something. He doesn't seem to understand how very visible that makes him to humans. However, that's another story.
I captured the stalker's gaze in acrylics on an 8" x 10" stretched canvas. I use acrylic paints very seldomly. I usually end up at some level of frustration with them and always forget how quickly they dry. But I had cleaned off my oil palette and thought I'd try the acrylics once more. And a more appropriate viewing distance. I so dislike the constant 'in your face' views that are online.
There may be a few final adjustments, then it will be presented to 'Sir' for approval.
