I guess my “Cats in Space” is now a series.
After decorated my classroom with a space theme, I guess I have space exploration on my mind. Are these cats amazing or what?!
Not a very original title, I know. I wish I had more time to do something wonderful. This one has some flaws, and I’m not too excited about it, but at least I am keeping up with the challenge! Only 25 days to go. Blue sky courtesy of Picmonkey.
Wish I could redo the painting on this one. I painted the letters blue, and then I wished I had left them white. I had the “bright” idea that I could lighten them up with “Whiteout”–which happened to be handy. BAD idea! I used my watercolor brush and quickly found out that the “Whiteout” is oil based and sticks like glue! I tried to wash the brush, but the white just got all over my fingers and won’t come off. I guess I need turpentine. And the brush is now in the garbage. And now you know–Whiteout is NOT like watercolor! And it didn’t even cover up the blue.
So even though this was a disaster, I learned from it and I still like my drawing–just don’t like how the painting came out. Shows what an amateur I am! I tried to spruce it up a bit with a border done in Picmonkey. Hope you will “SMILE” anyway.
It will be fun for my students to identify the spelling mistakes. Nevertheless, I love the kitchy vibe of this print. Though it has that 50’s look, It was printed by Moda fabrics just about 10 years ago.
Like any mom, this one is pretty proud of her chicks!
I recently sold a number of paintings in my Etsy shop. Yay! So I need to paint some more. This little teacup is just brimming with happy flowers.
