cat fish bird

I decided to try chocolate-coloured Canson Mi-Teintes drawing paper for this idea and like the subtler results and the way the texture of the paper is enhanced. It's over at Etsy.

Very nice Andrea ! - I'm really enjoying your work in my home although, it's yet to be framed like the many other pieces I have from trades and purchases.However, it can be interesting having pieces here and there, just leaning or sitting.

The cat drawings are too cool. These would also make nice reproduction prints.

Yes it doesn't look as harsh. Looks great. Hmmm I can picture some of your pieces on red! Go for the colors.

Sheri: Thanks and your home is already great looking (from the photos) -- but go ahead and hang all that work up!

Andrea, Jamie and Joyce: Just last night I read a design article about birds being the latest thing in decorating/home items. I should jump on that bandwagon with these little guys.

CSL, Toni & Bibi: Yes, I'm thinking I need to get more of that paper. I have had it awhile -- just needed to find the right thing for it.

Cynthia: It occurs to me that these cats are more in the realm of design than art. It's got me thinking...

Terramia: And that might be what I should call this series: Cat Fish Bird. I'm on that next!

HE: Yay! Someone picked up on the delectable chocolate theme! :)

Those birds look quite happy being in the company of the cat. So sending me the cat to get rid of my mice probably won't work.
