Caturday Art


Astrid and Lisbeth share a sunpuddle.


Today’s art was created using the Beauty effect from LunaPic, followed by the HDR-ish filter from Picasa, a mini-star border from piZap and the mat and frame from Picasa.

The interesting thing about this art, however, is the subjects. That is Astrid on the left and Lisbeth on the right sharing a sunpuddle. I about fell off my chair when I saw this. Though they were adopted together (after orphan Astrid joined Lisbeth’s litter) and totally inseparable as youngsters, Lisbeth DOES NOT LIKE Astrid. She hisses and growls at her whenever their paths cross. I can only assume that Lisbeth’s love of the sunpuddle outweighed her hatred of Astrid.

I hope you are not disappointed by today’s art. I had promised to complete the hand-colored picture of Cooper Murphy for today. Unfortunately, though I worked on it, it is still unfinished. MOUSES! The background is complete, but I am not satisfied with how Cooper Murphy is looking. I have been going over some colors with others. I am making no additional promises as to when that piece of art may appear here. I’ll just say that when I’ve finished it, I’ll post it.

Cat4-001Yep, it is that time again. Cooper Murphy will be representing tomorrow as he wants to be here to welcome another ginger tabby to the blogosphere. Most of you have met Angel Sammy’s new brother, Teddy, at what is now TWOspoiledcats, but tomorrow a special blog hop is being held to welcome him. If you hop with us, we’d like you to hop with Teddy as well. You can join the hop at Dory’s Backyard. We’ll provide that link tomorrow.

Until tomorrow, I’ll leave you with my usual “toodles.”
