Caturday Art

I have gone back in time for the photo I used as the basis for today’s art. It features our Blue angels, Madison (front) and MacKenzie (back). The photo was taken on December 11, 2009. Both boys passed away in 2011. To read more about these kitties, click on “The Felines” tab at the top of the page.


Blue angels in art


I absolutely loved these man-cats, and they totally loved each other. Finding them snuggled together was not unusual.

Original Photo

Again this week, I used the Painnt app. I like it, as once you have decided on and applied an effect, it can be manipulated in dozens of ways by various percentages. I created my art with the Desigual effect and made changes to the color, color composition and detail. The plain blue border was added with Picasa and the flower accents with piZap.

The arty photo is my submission for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. This is a great hop, giving you the opportunity to use your imagination and creativity. It’s also a great way to save a “bad” photo.

If you’d like to join the hop or just view the art, click on Athena’s badge.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Time to straighten your furs and get out your best smile. We’ll be hopping tomorrow with a special guest host. Kitties Blue are doing the happy dance as none of them will be called upon. Looking forward to seeing all our old friends and maybe some new ones as well.

That came out looking great! I love seeing cats cuddled up together. Paisley and Webster used to do that all the time, but not so much anymore.

That’s such a sweet photo of the boys cuddled up in the bed……keeping warm and sharing a space so closely. Obviously they were best buddies. I’m sure they continue to snuggle at the Bridge…..We love the artsy effects too – Paaint is one program we’ve not tried yet but probably should – this looks BEAUTIFUL and “soft”……….Happy Saturday too everyone!

Love, Teddy
