Painted Lily Olivia

by Janet Blue on November 15, 2014


LILYO Caturday Art paint


Surprise! I did little to this week’s photo of Lily Olivia. I used PicMonkey and added the Paint and the Bokeh (stars) textures. I then put the frame on in Picasa. That was it.

Lilyo Caturday paintHere is the original, somewhat blurry photo. I took it in early October late in the afternoon. I was dealing with lots of shadows, which was why I liked it. I took several photos of Lily Olivia sitting and lying in a variety of positions and will use the others to try out some different effects for future Caturday Art submissions.

Beautiful as always, Lily Olivia! Sorry we are late – we got super behind with the Jamboree over at Cat Scouts this week. Sampy is had a wonderful time, and is super excited because Denmaster told him this afternoon that he was purrmoted to COUGAR!!! He went from Tenderpaw to Cougar. Amazing!! He thought Astrid would like to know. He sends her 29384u5-20934850293452 kisses! We all send love and hugs.

Lily Olivia is such a beautiful girl that no matter how you jazz up a photo of her, that beauty shines right through in her “true” colors! Beautiful effects though………’s fun to work with photos isn’t it?! There are some great sites out there.

Hugs, Pam
