Caturday Art

Astrid asked if she could be the subject of today’s art creation, and I could not disappoint my precious, little cat. I mean, look at that face!

I found an older photo of her enjoying a sunpuddle in the kitchen. The contrast on it is very poor, as you will see in the original. Because of this, I think it made a good basis for our art. Astrid hopes you (and Sampy) like it.


Caturday Art using Painnt


I used the Flourish effect in Painnt to create the art. I was so happy with the colors I didn’t tinker with it. Astrid as a bi-eyed kitty looks pretty pawsome, don’t you think?

After the Painnt effect, I added the multi-colored scroll around the edge with piZap and the green and blue border with Picasa.

This is Astrid’s entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To join in the fun, click on Athena’s badge.

Here’s the original photo from March, 2017.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the day to share your handsome/cute/adorable self (or a special friend or visitor) with us on our weekly blog hop.

As we have done much too often lately, we will be honoring and remembering friends who have flown off to the Rainbow Bridge. Please come by to pay your respects to Sister Precious from Brian’s Home and Madi from Down Home in NC. We’ll also fill you in tomorrow on a special blog hop for Madi scheduled for Wednesday, September 26; though, we suspect most of you already know about it.


Kitties Blue asked me to apologize for not being here to help them visit your blogs. Dad Tom and I had the audacity to go away for a couple of days. I have promised them that I will work extra hard on their behalf this weekend.

And don’t feel too sorry for the crew. Chris spoiled them with way too many treats, and they still had their catio time each day.

See y’all tomorrow.

I can’t comment on your Sunday Selfie. I can get to the page via Home but as soon as I click to get the post so I can comment it goes blank. I also got the separate notification for your test post so it is not that one I am having trouble with. I also saw there are no comments so am assuming everyone is getting the same problem.

Wow, Astrid, you look magnificent! The bright and beautiful colors compliment your beauty perfectly! I wish I could be lying in that sun puddle with you.

Can’t open or comment on your Sunday Selfies post. Just get a blank page.

Have a purrfect day. ♥

We tried and tried to bring up your post on Sunday Selfies but we could not. We will try and again later. We don’t know why I can bring up CAturdays post and not Sundays. We also wondered at first if it had to do with the blog being unsecure. You can secure it by clicking that button on your SETTINGS page in blogger. (someone also told me about it too) We will try later to see if we can get in on your Sunday posting.

Whoa. This is super beautiful artwork, Janet! Astrid looks really neat as a bi-colored eye kitty 🙂

Nothing wrong with a couple of days off to rest and recharge!

Cathy Keisha September 22, 2018 at 10:23 pm

Nice colors and nice border.

The artwork is amazing. You took a not so great shot and made it great.

I’m be ready for the hop next Wednesday. It will be an honor.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

We like this one! We especially think it’s cool because the shadow looks like another cat.

The art is lovely. I like the way it brings Astrid’s shadow out and makes her eyes really stand out.

Linda Arthur Tejera September 22, 2018 at 10:36 am

Oh, Astrid, your artwork is absolutely gorgeous! 😀 <3

Astrid, you look beautious sweetie!

Peaches and Paprika September 22, 2018 at 8:15 am

We are always inspired when we see what lovely art effects you make from pix which otherwise might be second in line for greatness. It reminds us to keep our pix which have great lines and poses but might not be sharp or whatever. Thanks for the reminder and we love your art this week!

Oh my……..Astrid’s portrait for selfies is absolutely gorgeous……the expression on her face is “amplified” by the artistic effect too and makes it even more stunning than the original photo! WOW is what we say – simply WOW. Hope you enjoyed your little break from the KB Krew. Well deserved we say!!

Hugs, Mom Pam and Teddy too
