About this title


At a loss for new ideas, famous artist cat Seymour first tours all of his favorite places--the garden, the bookstore, a lake, a museum and other beautiful spots--before realizing that it is friendship which truly inspires him.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Deeter (who illustrated Alice Walker's Finding the Green Stone, 1991, etc.) guides readers through an exploration of the artistic process. A congenial blue cat, Seymour Bleu, faces the great white space of a new canvas; he has artist's block, and begins a journey, touring his garden, a bookstore, museum, and other places in search of inspiration. Ultimately it is the convivial warmth of his friends that provides Seymour Bleu with the stimulus he needs. Deeter's lush, evocative descriptions of color offer readers an artist's view of the world, e.g., a ``tangerine and amethyst rowboat glided easily through the chartreuse lily pads.'' With many sly, feline-enhanced nods to the masters, Deeter's illustrations point to several styles of art, from the examples in Seymour's eclectic studio, to the traditional representations he finds in the bookstore and more modern works found at the art museum and sculpture garden. A color key, mixing tips, and color palette delineating warm and cool colors are provided on the endpapers. An edifying portrait of one of the ways an artist works.
