Caturday Art

I have been admiring the art many of you have created in recent weeks using the Dreamscope app. Now, I have had the opportunity to give it a try. I selected a blurry photo of Lily Olivia napping in her favorite bunny position with two mousies.


Lily Olivia as a Lotus


After creating the art, I “boosted” the color a tiny bit and added the border using Picasa for both.

Lily Olivia prior to Lotus app.Here’s the original photo. I really like how the app made the purple mouse look like a lotus flower. And I love how the effect makes Lily appear to be smiling in her sleep. I imagine she is dreaming about being an only cat.


This is my entry into Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. As I’ve mentioned previously, this is one of my favorite hops. Having no inherent artistic ability, I have so much fun experimenting and creating. If you’d like to see the other submissions and/or add one of your own, click on Athena’s badge.

Cat4-001If it is Caturday Art today, tomorrow will be our blog hop, Sunday Selfies. It’s week 89, and the kitties and I are thrilled you are still enjoying participating. The kitties have been very closed-mouth this week as to which of them plans to show you his/her mug. I guess I’ll find out along with everyone else on Sunday morning.

As tomorrow is National Pet Parents Day, all you anipals might want to consider sharing your selfie with your human. I know many of them are quite shy and private, so no pressure…just something to consider. See you then.

Granny forgot if she was here already, Lily Olivia, but I guess we can’t say enough how beautiful you look in your artwork 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead 🙂 <3

I can’t even express how much I love this artistic image of Lily Olivia. It’s so lovely, so stunningly abstract, yet not so much that you can’t make out the sweet sleeping kitty. I just love it! Purrs!

What gorgeous art. The pop of the purple is so lovely. It would be beautiful as a piece of art on the wall. I’d at least hang it on my walls.
