Caturday Art

Today’s art is a bit different…no cats were disturbed or photographed in its creation.


Summer sunflower art.


We have had a total of five sunflowers this summer, and all have been in flower boxes. The groundhogs have munched all those that have tried to grow in the garden. And the squirrels have been mowing down the ones in the flower boxes. Consequently, I was excited to have Dad Tom get a couple of photos of the two we have now.

Here’s the photo that is the basis for today’s art. I normally like to tell you how I created the arty version, but I didn’t really keep track this week. I can tell you that I began by converting the photo to a pencil sketch using Picasa. The remainder of the creation was accomplished using PicMonkey. I think it is interesting, and I like it. What do you think? Was it okay to do something that didn’t involve any of the Kitties Blue?

This is our entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To show off your creativity and/or see that of other bloggers, click on her badge.

p.s. We just found out that Athena is on vacation, so no blog hop this week. We hope you enjoy our art anyway!

Cat Scouts Summer Camp

Cooper Murphy and Mau have been super busy at Summer Camp in Yosemite. They’ve been doing craft projects, writing poetry and sharing s’mores recipes. They also hiked to the top of Half Dome.

Both boys have promised to share some of their poetry later in the week as well as photos of their craft projects.

It’s been a long week. Both boys and I are exhausted. Summer Camp ends Sunday, and we’ll be glad to get back to a regular schedule of visiting and finding out what you all have been doing.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

After a post with no cats, I can assure you one of the Kitties Blue will be here tomorrow. No volunteers yet, so I may need to use some form of bribery to secure a subject. Don’t forget to recruit someone at your house to join in the fun tomorrow. All of us look forward to seeing you then.
