Frowning Fiona in mosaic.


Yes, I do look as if I am frowning in my photo, but I was just concentrating. I had my eyes trained on the bird feeder just outside the catio. Every perch was filled, and birdies were waiting in the nearby tree for their turn at the seed. I didn’t even want to blink for fear of missing something. My dad took advantage of my distracted state and snapped this photo.

To create the art, Mom went to Dreamscope again. She says they have so many cool filters that she just couldn’t help herself. She tried four different looks, but this was her favorite. (She’ll post at least one of the others on Instagram.) She used the mosaic filter on this. After using Dreamscope, Mom used Picasa to blur the edges and add the border.

Fiona on the catio frowning at the birds.Here’s the original photo. We’re entering the mosaic version in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. We enter this every week and encourage you to give it a try. If you’d like to enter some art of your own or just check out the other submissions, click on Athena’s badge.


So, you know what tomorrow is…that’s right, our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. None of us have come forward to volunteer to be your host. Mom, however, has promised it won’t be Mauricio. Allie voiced her opinion that he should be featured everyday. He totally agrees, further proving that he is a blog hog. MOUSES!

Cat4-001Anyhoo, all of us Kitties Blue hope to see lots of you tomorrow for the hop. We’ll surprise you with the host. Giulietta got furminated and brushed yesterday so she’s all nice and floofy. Maybe I can convince her to do a selfie. If anyone can, it will be me. I can use the power of suggestion and whisper in her ear while we’re snuggling. Cross your paws it works!

Purrs and paw-pats, Fiona

That is an exceptional photo/artwork! Love it! It would be great as one of those window things that catch sun….it would also make a good greeting card, cutting board (NOT STRANGE! I had a cat cutting board that was artsy)……..all kinds of things!
