Re: Catnipped

Oh Bev, I love Cats and these are marvellous. Nice bold colours and I love their little eyes and quirky smiles...The one it the middle is my favourtie.
Its so funny, that you posted this today, because I am working on project covering several paintings from my travels with cats in them...I usually paint my cats from the back because I cant seem to find a good face for them..you know.
Your faces are super. Great job!

Re: Catnipped

YEs...I agree. They do have a secret society. *LOL* the middle cat....that look is one my male cat "Bubba" gets quite often. I always wonder why he stares like that...with his eyes wide open.


Ha ha....cat-alogue ....just got that

Re: Catnipped

Cat on left: "ah, jeez, she's painting us again"
Cat in middle: "should we run and hide?"
Cat on right: "Nah, let's just sit here and stare. make her squirm"


Bev, you're having entirely too much fun!

Re: Catnipped

ahh well i forgive you for not painting crows one of my personal faves...
how could i not with these characters.
i can imagine the many gossipy stories they tell as they get
stoned on catnip and sit around the litter box.
