MAURICIO BLUE IS BLUE

Caturday Art

Mauricio returns today without his turkey suit. In mid-October he was atop the pool cover one afternoon looking particularly cute. I snapped a few photos of him. The one I am using today for art is from that photo shoot.

 

Mauricio Blue is blue for Caturday Art.

 

This is the photo I used for the basis of my art. I selected this photo as I thought all the shadows and various textures would make the creation more interesting.

My first addition was the pen art effect from LunaPic. I almost stopped with just that, but if you know me, that’s just not my MO.

My next step was to add the Crystal Palace filter using piZap. That added some splashes of color around the edges. Then it was back to LunaPic to add the water effect and the “Splash” art. After adding “Splash” I cut back on that effect by about 50 percent to get some of the original pen look back. The border was from Picasa. That gave me the art you see at the top of this post.

This is Mau’s entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. If you created some art today or want to find links to other creations, click on her badge.

Mau hopes his lovely wife Allie (Friends Furever) enjoys seeing him again for the second day. He’s sending her oodles of love and smoochies.

Wow! It published without going to spam for the first time in months. I wonder if it is because I put my name in instead of Eric and Flynn’s.

Mauricio we love the way your furs look in this photo of you – – – curly-whirly and soft! That look in your eyes is so intense – no doubt you were thinking about how wonderful it would be to visit your Allie and give her a REAL hug?? See you tomorrow for the selfies………….
