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.
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.

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.
Hi there, I enjoy reading through your article post.
I wanted to write a little comment to support you.
Your Caturday Art ROCKS!
You look spectacular!
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.
Super cool art!
I’m commenting on this post as for some reason your Sunday Selfie post won’t open up for me,great Selfie and Great Caturday art too,xx Speedy
That’s some Stunning Artwork, Astrid and yes, that bi-colored eyes…holey moley, you’re looking fine, girl 😀 We hope you had a great time! Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday 🙂
We can’t reply on the Sunday Selfies blog, don’t know why, but it doesn’t pop up. Will come back later to try again. Extra Pawkiss for the inconvenience🐾😽💞
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!
Nice colors and nice border.
That is SO gorgeous!!! I love the look of the shadow in the artwork too.
That’s really cool!
Have a great Saturday…
Noodle and crew
That’s amazing artwork! We love how her eyes turned out.
The Florida Furkids with bazillion smoochies and tons of love to Mau from Allie
That is beautiful art. I am glad you two got to go away and the kitties were well cared for too. 🙂 XO
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.
Oh, Astrid, your artwork is absolutely gorgeous! 😀 <3
Astrid, you look beautious sweetie!
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
Wow, cool art! I think you deserve a couple of days off sometimes.
