Caturday Art

I am not trying to say that Astrid is insincere, but rather that I made two versions of art today, featuring our tiny tortie. Astrid and I were snuggling at the time. Often in the morning, after I have opened the cat door to the catio but before I have permanently gotten up for the day, Astrid and I snuggle. She likes to burrow into my neck and knead me until I’m bloody. If I lie down for a rest in the afternoon, she often curls up on top of me.

I used Painnt to create both artistic images. They both feature the Silver Chips effect. I manipulated the color composition and coloring to achieve the two different effects. The first piece of art also employs a frame from Painnt. (And both show off her gorgeous collar, which was a gift from her wonderful husband, Sampy.)

PiZap was used to add the butterfly border in this second version. The solid borders were added with Picasa.


Version #2 of Astrid's Silver Chip Caturday Art.


I usually do not post two pieces of art, but in this case I liked them both. Do you have a favorite? Let Astrid know in the comments.

Here’s the original photo of Astrid lying in my lap.
