Scuss's Riot

This is Missy who belongs to Scuss, who
is a regular commenter--I asked to use her
recent photo of the new kitten.
I enjoyed putting the characteristics
of this pet,
around the border as she
will be pleased, I'm sure.
I feared inking the initial pencil
sketch would take away the
softness of the kitten so kept
it light in color to help --

I do so love your journal pages -you are are inspiration to me.
This little kitten looks so happy and care-free - a warming sight for what is here a very cold day! (Norwich, UK)
I was sorry to read that your family are not yet able to recognise your talent - they really are missing out.

Marancat---I live near Norwich, Conneticut--and have a memory of being in some stone building there, where they had a whole group of classical statues dimly lit which was awesome to me---I wished I could take classes there and learn all about anatomy and be a cool art student etc. Winna Jill

It's PERFECT! Love the notations, too...

So beautiful, Winna!

I haven't owned a cat in decades, but whenever I need to relax, I imagine a kitty on my lap, stretched out & purring as I rub her tummy. Your artwork creates that same blissful feeling in me. Definitely something I would hang on my wall!

Well Missy is star!!! Last night and this morning she was a terror., she seems to love to get in trouble when the lights are out!!! Having to rearrange and move everything that is in her sight. She was a riot today, after exploring the basement she came up with cobwebs all over her whiskers. Sure hope she turns into a very lazy and sleepy adult cat!!!
Thanks Jill :)

Adorable, love ALL things "cat." And this is fab....love your stapler too. I'll have to see if I can get inspired by my array of staples. LOL.

What a fun journal entry!!! It would put a smile on any cat lovers face. Your work is awesome.

Oh, yeah --- I know that "I'm very pleased with myself" look! Like the one my Bearcat wears after jumping on the kitchen table (this is discouraged) or taking over the dog's bed.
