Art and a Couple of Kitty Butts!

Did that title grab you? Read on....

Can it be almost the middle of January already? Yikes! I'm not sure how good I'm doing with my word for this year....I'm trying to focus on art but some days it just doesn't happen. We still have to eat, wear clean clothes, and have a somewhat tidy home. If I could depend on the maid and the butler to take care of those things I'd have so much more time for art. Unfortunately they're on strike!

I managed to finish the journal page I showed you a couple of days ago....

Nothing fancy but at least I finished it.

I used my Portfolio and Neocolor II crayons for the background. I added some little swirls with white ink but they don't show up in the photos.

Mostly I used acrylics and colored pencils for the flowers, then added details with a paint pen.

I must be really confused about the seasons right now. I'm painting springtime flowers and have an autumn background on my blog! I never do like to follow the pack!

And just for fun I'm including a photo of Harley (bottom) and LuLu (top) watching "kitty TV" ....and showing their best sides!

They love to sit and look out the patio doors. This was taken back when we still had a little bit of snow in the back yard.

I'm off to work on my latest drawing. I promise I am making progress on it and soon I'll have something more to show than washed out photos of pencil lines!

Have a fun day. This is a quote I saw recently.... "the world looks brighter from behind a smile"


  1. Nice journal page. So colourful.
    The kitty butts made me chuckle!

  2. You just can't beat Kitty TV. LOLOL LOVE it!!!

    And your journal page is delicious! I love all the colors!!!

    ;-D robelyn

  3. You may not think it's anything fancy but I LOVE IT!! It's the kind of art that I enjoy. It's has a hint of sixties pattern with modern color! I just like it a lot! And that's a fun picture of the kitty butts!

    Hugs Giggles

  4. My kind of art Janet and I think the kitty butts are good too.

  5. I like the journal pages..I think the kitty butts are funny..LOL...

  6. Yes Think Spring Time for before you know it Spring is here, however today feels much like spring with the temperatures in the 70's today.

    Love the colors, very bright and happy looking, and those kitty butts are really something else too. :)

    I love the journal bright and colorful!! The kitty butts are so funny...watching their big world while they stay nice and cozy inside. Have a great weekend!

  8. I think when I graduate, I will have to invest in some pens like yours - I always love your drawings

  9. Haven't been by for awhile, off tripping with the hubster. I love your new blog header, and the side bars(YAY for TURQUOISE!) The flowered journal page is nice, I like those whimsical drawings. Kitty butts are too funny. I don't have a kitty, but 2 friends send me "laugh riot" photos of their kitties antics.

  10. I love those kitties. I was in fear that you had painted their little tushes and stamped a background with them. LOL Love you latest creation. We all need bright colors right about now. Beautiful as usual. I hope I have not given you any ideas about those precious kitties....

  11. I really like the new blog header.
    What decides who gets the top spot on the kitty post? So cute that they are "watching" together.
    Loved the flower art.

  12. Ahhh....Spring. I am definitely not a Winter person.

    Love the kitty butts!

  13. Fabulous pages, great colours and design.

  14. Kitty butts! Adorable. Kitty tv looks kinda like Mz. Wee tv. ;) Guess they watch the same programs. What would we do without nature's tv to keep them occupied? Awesome art designs too.

  15. Love the colors and cheer in your art. Simply happy.

    As for the kitty butts -- well, I know only too well what those are! And yours look divinely happy!

  16. What a cute pic of Harley and Lulu! I have another blogger friend whose cat loves watching kitty

    Your journal page is eye-catching...great job!

  17. Janet;
    This is a beautiful page! I love your flowers and your colors! Your babies are very sweet too! LOL
    You make me want to get out my markers!
    Hugs and blessings

  18. Well my world is looking better Janet, because you post has made me smile. I love the journal page, the funky flowers and great smiley colours. I am getting the urge to do a stripey background like that after seeing yours and Milliande's pages.
    The kitty tv is so cute.
