Thursday in a Tizzy!

I'm in a tizzy today trying to get everything done and some things I didn't even know about! Here are my nominees for the "I love your Blog" Award. Grab the award and pass it along, I think to 6 people. It was tough picking because I love so many!








Teri Martin requested that I do some angel aura cats for her gallery/shop. When she first asked what ran through my mind was "No I can't do it!" Cats have been painted & drawn for thousands of years, and there is so much fantastic cat art out there, how could I possibly do something different? Well she had me going, so inspired, that after the call I hurried upstairs to my studio and painted a funky cat. I didn't like it. It had no personality whatsoever. It was just bright and funky. I'm painting over it. Then later they came to me. Meow! I pulled out a piece of wood instead of canvas to give it another try. I was up until almost 2 am having so much fun! These are how they came out...
I think these little guys are full of personality!

Your kitties are beautiful, I really love them! Cats are so full of personality it is no surprise that they are a favorite subject of painters for hundreds of years.

I love yours, hope you do more! :)

I like your cats! You might be interested in reading a post I wrote on my blog, The Artist's Muse, in July. It's called "All Things Bright and Beautiful" and is about cat art. Here's the link:

Dear Janet! I love your blog also!!!! Your cats tug at my heartstrings. Thank you so much for this award. I think we should collaborate on some art soon! I see your drawings and think you're just fantastic. It's a wonderful look and one I'd be proud to show off in glass! Don't you think that would be unique? So, when things calm down on my end I'll be contacting you. I have been getting orders for my glass mosaic antique windows!!! I love creating exactly what the client orders...it's so challenging and fun. With much gratitude and blessings to you, Laurie B.

I like your kitty angels! So nice to have your work be so impressive and spirited that someone requests special consignments.
