Cat and Bird by Paul Klee 1928

     This is an approximate symmetry, and actual size painting.  Paul Klee used lines, shapes, and colors to create this painting.  Primary, secondary colors with geometric shapes.  The artist painted a bird on the cats forehead to show what it was thinking.  The cat's eyes are horizontal, so it seems calm.  There are variety of shapes, heart for its nose, triangle ears, the eyes are shaped like a diamond.  The focal point would be the bird on the cats forehead, it made me wonder what it was doing there.
