Can you believe it is February already? I certainly can't.
This month I'm sharing another image from my sketchbook that I created the same year as the last one, 1992.
This image was actually based on a coaster set we had. Eleven years later and I am still not happy with that kitten's eyes. The poor thing looks like he has been shocked, or is waiting for the dog to eat him or something else equally unpleasant. I remember working and reworking them at the time but just couldn't get them right. I think I finally gave up. I decided to post this particular image this month because it seems I'm having a run on cat related ideas. Between the sentiments and cat digi images I've used in a couple of my last cards, it seemed the perfect time to show it.
TaTa 'til next time,
Okay Lisa - do you know what I saw when I looked at that kitty's eyes. I thought it was looking at a bird it was going to pounce on - or someone was teasing it with something and it is about to pounce! Probably because that is what my darling teenage daughter does with cats and kittens - playfully of course. I love your drawing - it is beautiful and I for one think those eyes are just right.
I love the facial expression of that kitten! He seems to be on the alert, yes, but he also feels very much "alive" somehow. I think this is a wonderful drawing.
Oh that's so sweet Lisa. I too love the expression on the kitty. Fabulous :-) xxx
Lisa, this is a lovely drawing, they look so sweet together! very good job! Hugs, Mat
