CATURDAY ART: FUNKY FIONA

by Janet Blue on June 6, 2015

Even though Fiona recently had a bout of naughtiness (more about that next week), I allowed her to spend time with me in the yard yesterday while I worked in the flower beds. Of the catio cats, she is a the only one to be granted this special privilege. I allow this for two reasons: 1) She doesn’t wander off, and 2) I cannot tolerate her whining from the catio the entire time I am in the garden.

I asked the kitties’ dad to come outside and take some photos of Fiona. If I try to do this while I am with her, she gets right up in my face, and I end up with a blurry mess. Here is one of a series Tom captured. It is unusual to get a photo showing Fiona’s lovely, two-toned green eyes so I am quite pleased with this.

And now here is the art version I am entering in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Whereas the first photo shows off Fiona’s eyes, this one highlights her unusually short whiskers.

neonI used several filters and effects in PicMonkey, including Posterize and Pixelate to turn Fiona into Funky Fiona. To see all the submissions and/or add one of your own, click on Athena and Marie’s Badge.

Cat4-001So it’s Sunday again tomorrow…time to show off your excellent selfie skills. We won’t be having a guest host tomorrow as Astrid has asked to reveal the gift from her boyfriend Sampy (Kitty Cat Chronicles), which I brought home from Blog Paws. Hope she can get a great photo of herself that Sampy will love!

Don’t forget that joining a blog hop is a great way to get new visitors to your blog as well as make some new friends.

Fiona, you do have beautiful green eyes! Green eyes like our Sophie 🙂 We can’t wait to hear about the mischief you’ve been up to lately! We can only imagine…
Sampy looks forward to seeing Astrid tomorrow, and he sends her a kiss for every selfie that’s ever been taken. He is begging me to let him be featured for Sunday Selfies tomorrow, so perhaps Astrid will get to see him as well.
We all send lots of love!!!
