Mauricio is our regular yard and home guard, but he decided to give Misty May that privilege a few days ago

Misty May on guard duty.


To create today’s art, I first used the Watercolor Portrait filter from Dreamscope. I then loaded the photo into PicMonkey and added one of the weave overlay textures, the border and the picture corners.

The original photo was taken by the kitties’ dad with a wide-angle lens when Misty May was lounging on our front walk. Unfortunately she’s wearing her usual grumpy expression.

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Cat4-001Tomorrow is week #92 of our blog hop. It’s also National Chocolate Chip Day. Maybe you can think of a way to include that in your selfie. I think I’ll just nibble some chocolate while creating and posting our selfie. No volunteers yet to be your host. Guess you’ll just need to check in tomorrow. Hope to see you then.

Misty May, you posed so beautifully for the art work. I can still tell it’s you after the artwork is done. A very sophisticated kitty too.

Love your Caturday Art. We think Misty May’s “grumpy” look is quite cute 🙂

That’s a great effect, Mom Janet and Misty May! And we Misty May’s grumpy expression just makes her an even better guard. 🙂

Misty May looks awesome. I am so jealous over that wide-angle lens (and the good photography)! Your artwork looks so neat. Great ideas on both the watercolor and the overlay.

I read your post on Fiona. That’s great that she’s improving. I understand the process very well. We cared for our CRF kitty, Simba, for close to four years. He eventually had to have daily fluids but did so well on them and he also had to have the phosphorous binder in his food. I hope she continues to do well.

We have to miss the selfie hop tomorrow unfortunately.

The original wide-angel photo is great and I don’t think you look grumpy at all.
Your art effect is unique and makes a great piece of artwork.

Maybe it’s not a “grumpy” expression, it’s just her “strictly business” expression?!?

Well guards have a serious job so they usually have serious expressions – Misty May looks ready to protect her family and her surroundings! As for the artwork – it’s fabulous…..you always come up with interesting combinations of effects for a REAL work of art!
