|One of the few times I can get my cat to sit still for a picture.|
Just a quick camera-phone shot.
|This Photoshopped version brings out details of his fur,|
as well as adding more vivid colors ... fun!
|This was a small (2x3") 1913 photo of my maternal grandmother, working as a telephone operator.|
I had already done some painstaking clean-up of surface dust motes, scratches, etc. at this point.
|Here is the final Photoshopped version that I made to look as if|
oil-painted. I then sent it off to be printed in enlarged form (18x24")
as a gift for my 92-year-old mother.
|A dear friend whose beloved dog had passed away|
gave me this photo to use as a basis for a thread painting.
|Here is the finished piece. I chose to place him on a|
background of Texas bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush
flowers before thread painting. He was such a
sweet little guy.
|The 4 kids in my family, ca. 1957|
(that's me on the right)
|I wanted to see how would all have looked|
as a family of cats! Just having fun. Each cat face
was chosen with a view for the personality of each child.
