Caturday Art

I think two of the most beautiful things on earth are cats and flowers. So what could be better for Caturday Art than just that—a cat and a colorful flower.


Lily Olivia and flower.


I’m sure you recognize Lily Olivia in this photo. And that is one of the two sunflowers not destroyed by our resident marauding marmots (groundhogs). If you missed our post about the groundhogs with the gargantuan appetites, click here.

I combined the two photos using PicMonkey. The yellow frosted edge was added using the same app. The border was done in Picasa.

Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001Tomorrow will end our second year of Sunday Selfies with our 104th post. Kitties Blue and I are incredulous that next week will begin year three of our blog hop. As we close out year two, we hope lots and lots of you will join us in the hop. For those of you who have joined us every week or even just once, we are deeply appreciative and send you our thanks.

See you tomorrow!

Misty May Mirrored Tapestry Cat


Can you guess who this is? I am amazed that today’s Caturday Art actually began as a photograph. I will slowly work backwards to the original photo so you can see who posed for my art.

The above was created using PicMonkey’s Mirror Image and Pixelation. Here’s how the graphic looked prior to those additions.


Misty May Tapestry Cat


This rendition was created using the Starburst overlay in Dreamscope. I really like how it looks like a tapestry.

Finally, here is the original photo. It’s Misty May. I had to lighten it up a lot before I could use it. Even then it was super blurry.

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Cat4-001After last week’s groundhog selfies, two of the Kitties Blue have volunteered to be your hosts tomorrow. They do not like being upstaged by those garden scourges. When I discovered that we had two groundhogs, I told the kitties’ dad that I suspected we might actually have a third “little” groundhog. And indeed we do. I saw it yesterday afternoon accosting the sweet potato plant leaves. So, we do have an entire family of critters snacking about in the yard. MOUSES! Oops…I mean GROUNDHOGS!

Anyhoo, hope you’ll join us tomorrow. We had a great turnout last week. Kitties Blue and I are quite thankful for each of you who entered and/or commented last week.
