I went a little crazy creating today’s art for Athena’s Caturday Art blog hop. All the changes to the photo were made using Picasa, which is the program I use for my everyday photo editing. I started by inverting the colors (which gave me the lavenders and blues), and then I applied several other filters as well as the border.

The original photo, which you can see below, is one of my favorite photos of our sweet Mac. I always teased that MacKenzie was tied to my apron strings as he followed be everywhere. And he never meowed. He made a baaing noise like an itty-bitty lamb.


The original photo was taken in September 2011. Mac passed away from inoperable cancer a little more than a month later.
