This cat is the start of the third part of my little triptych - dog in the middle and canary on the one side. Cat will be on the left side. I haven't drawn cats much and am a bit worried about the color. I want a black cat...but perhaps marmalade will work also. We'll see how it all works out.
We had these gourds outside as birdhouses and I took them down to clean them up. This one was beyond repair as an actual birdhouse so I pasted and glittered and glued and embellished. Fun if not gorgeous. But I was proud of myself - I really got into the gourd decorating and of course found a site that sells gourds....and gourd accessories...and I didn't buy a thing!!! The other one (not shown here, packed up as a present for a friend) I did with natural colors using some rubbed on acrylics - it came out beautiful and glowing.
