Zuffi talks about Ruben's joy of painting, his variety of colors, the dynamism of movement, "almost a visual symphony," etc., then gets to the heart of the matter:
...in keeping with its reputation for imperturbability, the cat placidly maintains its siesta, crouched by the sewing basket.
I can only wonder at the near-miraculous ability of the cat to stay cool in the midst of all that art happening around it.
