Not all Nurses are Women, Continued

Cat Nurse 2010 by JParadisi

 watercolor, ink, and pastel on paper 

     In a hospital gift shop I found a get well card with a photograph of a cat wearing a nurse cap. The cat looks pissed off in the photograph. Maybe the cat is angry because it’s wearing the cap, but I suspect it was photo-shopped on. Is the cat  angry because the designer of the card is saying something about nurses? I don’t know. It’s a funny image designed to make the person receiving the card laugh. This is the first interpretation I painted of the card.
