MANEKI-NEKO POM POM ART

by Janet Blue on August 7, 2021

Caturday Art

The current Olympics in Tokyo inspired today’s art. Japan always makes me think of the maneki-neko (beckoning cat). I have a small collection from Dad Tom’s many trips to Japan, which I shared in a post (The Beckoning Cat Maneki-Neko) in 2013. The photo from that post is the basis for my art.

I selected the Starry Night effect from Painnt and a frame from Favpng to create this. I like how it looks like a collage made from the fuzzy pom poms used for craft projects.

This is my submission for the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. You can join in the fun by clicking on her badge.

 

If you do not know the history of the maneki-neko, click on the link in the first paragraph to read my original post.
