Caturday Art

Cooper Murphy is hoping y’all are not getting tired of seeing him. Some of the Kitties Blue are much more amenable to having their photo taken. Of course, it helps if they are sleeping, as Cooper is in today’s art.

I am sharing two different versions of art today, as I cannot decide which I like best. If you have a favorite, let Cooper know in the Comments.



As I do most weeks, I used the Painnt app and piZap to create both versions. The base of both is the Darkside effect from Painnt with the coloring set on Summer. The white smudge border on both is from piZap and the second photo has piZap’s glitter effect at about 35 percent.

A couple of things really stood out for me in this photo, and one is the illusion that Cooper Murphy is floating above the background. He actually was asleep on Dad Tom’s and my bed.  I also am enamored with his pink nose and how the tip of his tail is standing upright. And, of course, there’s that tummy and those toesies.

Here’s the original photo for comparison.

Cooper Murphy is joining the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. To join him there or just check out art from other bloggers, click on Athena’s badge.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

I am fairly certain that after more than five years of Sunday Selfies those of you who are regular participants do not need a reminder. But for those senior citizens, like myself, who often forget what day of the week it is, I will continue to give you a prod on Caturday to get your selfie taken for the following day. So…get your selfie taken for tomorrow.Then you won’t have to interrupt your Easy Sunday with a photo session.

That is a very interesting effect. I think the top is slightly better.

Sorry we will be AWOL this week Mom says the weather is so nice she needs to do some weeding at the Butterfly Garden. We will try to do a selfie next week.

Cooper Murphy we love both of your works of art but we are partial to the first one.

Looking good, Cooper Murphy! We love them both, but if we have to choose, we’ll choose the first. 🙂

We like the first version best…it shows off Cooper Murphy’s ginger better. And we’re big fans of the ginger. 🙂

Hi Cooper. Our Rumpy Bump does not like the light when he is napping either. He always covers up with a paw. Purrs buddy

Hmm, I guess the first one grabs me the most, but Cooper Murphy hiding his eyes from the sunlight is very cute!

Ahhh Cooper – you are reminding everyone how fabulous we gingers look when we’re napping away all “curled up” in our slumber and dreams. Well done!

Hugs, Teddy
