2021 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #53
“Midnight Star Catcher” by Lillian Johnson
Sponsored by: Sawyer Chevrolet
Description: Midnight Star Catcher is a black cat born at midnight under the brightest stars. She is painted black with a black rhinestone design over her body, crystal rhinestones on her paws and belly, with a Swarovski star on her forehand.
Midnight Star Catcher was born on a beautiful clear night in a barn loft. The hay door was open, the moon and starts cast their glow on the new mama cat and newly born litter. At midnight when one of the kittens made her entrance into the world, it seemed as if the stars were twinkling just for her. As she lay next to her mama, she mewed and stretched her paw as if to catch a star. Hence, Midnight Star Catcher was born.
About the Artist: Lillian Johnson was a resident of Catskill for 35 years and now resides in Castleton on Hudson. For 40 years, I have been involved in some sort of creativity, sewing, painting, hot glass, stained glass, and ceramics, just to name a few. I love the challenge of formed objects and making them my own. When working on a piece, I find myself creating a story for it.
