Congressional Art Competition 2021

Emily Schiessl

Just a cat, nothing more, nothing less. A simplicity in the hectic rush of day-to-day life. In this piece, the perspective gives a silly energy, and I wanted to capture the expression and emotion. I want the viewers’ eyes to be drawn to Milo’s eyes, silently begging for attention, whether it be a chin scratch or a finger to chase. An intricate, but simple piece. Nothing more and nothing less than a cat.
