I designed ‘Black Cat’ upon a real person I know, who would have more than enough to write an epic of misfortune and it is not that he looks for it. It just happens and it often happens to him. I have to admire my friend though, he does what he can and despite all the mire, he still manages to have a laugh with it all, or half a one at least, even with the cloud above him. In the painting though, the soaked man actually has a whole storm under his umbrella.
You’ll notice however, that there is a rainbow and it is bright around him as well, which is a tribute to his character. When things are slightly up, he sees the sunny side of things. When things are indeed up, he’ll probably take the mickey out of you.
So try to take some heart out of this for when you are on the down side of things and remember that it is not always you. If you can, reach out for that rainbow on the outside.
Hopefully, it will help with the subsiding of the storm.
