Itty Bitty Kitty Art: Cat in a Bag

November 25th, 2009

Oh, today was long. But the service for my Grandma was very nice. My sister read a lovely eulogy. And it was great to see family I hadn't seen in a long time.

Tonight, the hubster and I and two of my siblings will be driving to New York for Thanksgiving. It's going to be pretty busy, but I will do my best to post some art while I'm away. Today, after a nap, I did this itty bitty kitty about another favorite cat hang out, the grocery bag. Cats in bags crack me up, so it was fun to paint this little 3"x3" canvas. I did the final touches with an actual cat (Sadie) in my lap. I wish we could take our kitties to New York with us, but they would not like the drive. :-)

I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving!!

One of my cats is sleeping on my feet as I type this. The other is under the tree I just put up today. They both love getting under it and hiding out. It is too funny watching them. Love your itty bitty kitty paintings. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Leah, every time I see one of your new kitties, I think, “”Wow! That’s my new favorite!” So now, of course, this one is my new favorite! Great colors and composition!

Hi everyone, it’s Thanksgiving Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to make something fun that’ll probably involve a bike ride and seeing something new in North Reading I haven’t seen yet.
You write new post at Thanksgiving?
