I know! It even has a cat in it. Notice the perspective of the rug (goes on forever) with the light coming in from a big window. And the girl is "just right".

Thanks for turning me on to this image and artist :) I'm intrigued by many objects to be discovered within a painting; this one's busy with alot of the same shades of color, but it works...the endless rug pattern's cool. Think maybe that's a dachshund ;)

It's a dog!! You are right. I had to enlarge it to see. I'm getting new glasses today!

a lily becomes a rose; a dog, the cat; a young girl on her grandmothers carpet with her weekend toys, a distant memory...ain't art beautiful?

Yes, the girl is definitely on her grandmother's carpet. Art is really beautiful when it evokes these kinds of feelings and memories which are individual and universal all at the same time.
