Was there a kitten Perhaps next door That longed for cuddling Evermore
I think there was a kitten Which may have been a stray That came to know my "Mary" If only for one day

Beyond the Canvas is a compilation of photograph/painting comparisons with poetry, depicting a little girl placed for adoption in 1966 ... who grew up on canvas. Was There A Kitten? is the third in a unique series created by Van Sleet over a twenty-six year period. As an artist she processed, through painted portraits, a silent longing for her stranged child. When the two met as women in 1993, Susan saw for the first time the daughter she had only imagined for nearly three decades.
