Despite the fact that Smokey uses Catnip or Catmint (Nepeta cataria) before painting, her work does not reflect a psychedelic element. She seems to use it more as a way of intensifying the harmonic resonance experience which acts as a stimulant to feline creativity. 

The a/c painting above titled Serious Ramifications, depicts the study of a ram. Its bold regularity and symmetry describe the undulate movement of powerful limbs trauncing through a field of dandelions.
