Mom acts like a cat on nip when Saturday approaches. She gets excited and crazypants when she knows it’s time for her to create some Caturday Art for Athena and Marie’s Blog Hop.
This week she selected one of my selfies I rejected last week. It was super blurry and did not show off my exquisiteness to my satisfaction. I’m surprised, but I actually like this rendering and find it an improvement over the original.
If you have never noticed, Mom has a thing for the color aqua and uses it bunches as evidenced by this week’s creation. She did everything in our usual photo-editing program, Picasa. She began by adding the neon filter in aqua, then the boost filter, followed by the softness filter. Her final step prior to adding the drop shadow frame was to use the HDR-ish filter at full strength and full radius.
Here’s my original photo. I’m a little bug-eyed and am showing the black side of my nose. Last Sunday I regaled you with the more feminine, pink side.

Hello my darling girls–and Mauricio too,
In your honor I maded the Human help me with a selfie but we are too stoopy to do linkies or blog hops or any cool stuff like that. We is very primitive! Anyway, we LOVE your arty post today with all the aqua–course it’s beautiful because the subject is beautiful! XOXOXOXOXO
That’s pretty cool, Misty May! And for a selfie, we think the original is pretty good too.
That’s pretty cool!! Bit scary, but pretty cool! MOL
Photo fails often make really great artwork!
WAY SUPER COOL! We are loving that neon effect. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Sampy is wondering what Astrid is up to. He has been cuddling with Mom and being super lovey and sweet, as usual. He also sends as many kisses to Astrid as there are hairs on his body. We all send love and hugs.
Your mom went all out on the editing this week. Great job!
Misty May looks like some kind of futuristic tecno-cat. Very creative.
You are always very creative and we look forward to your creations each week.
We think that’s very creative and clever!
Athena and Marie
Impressive and darn fancy too!
These Caturday Art hops sure are fun! Our human is afraid to do them because she thinks she would dwell on them for hours!
I always learn something new about photo art when I read your Caturday Art blog post.
WOW! That is a pawsome artsy pic 🙂
Just proves that there is no such thing as a bad pic of a cat 😉
Purrs Georgia and Julie,

We love both pictures but the neon effects are way cool.
We love BOTH the Andy Warhol version and the original! Have a fantastic Caturday! Hope your Mom doesn’t mind, we are sending the wonderful book we got from you onto Nylablue’s Mom. We think it will bring her comfort.
