Upsidedown Calm Cat-astrophe series No. 6

"Upside down Calm," 5 x 7 Calm Cat-astrophe series no. 6, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper
When the world seems like it is upside down in catastrophe after
catastrophe,  how do you cope?
Pandemic, racism, political danger build stress upon stress. 
Perhaps we need to keep "tabs," (pun) and learn even more from our feline friends. How long since you've seen them nap, or doze or sleep? 
Notice their posture, their body language. Secure, contented, turning their heads upside down, or covering their eyes from the light, curled up and comfy.
Need calm? Turn off the news, cuddle up, take a nap.
Thus today's cat-astrophe watercolor series no. 6.
