Balloon Cats

Painting random blobs in watercolor and then creating a cat from the shape is really fun!  These looked like balloons to me.  Kind of like the ones in Macy’s Thanksgiving parade:

blob kitty - 3

I learned how to make these blob cats from Carla Sonheim.

Here are some cats with an extra spring in their step:

And a couple of calico cats:

I suggest you give these a try!  They will certainly make you smile!  🙂

These silly cats remind me of a poem by Shel Silverstein:

I will not play at tug o’ war.                                                                                              I’d rather play at hug o’ war,                                                                                     Where everyone hugs                                                                                                Instead of tugs,                                                                                                             Where everyone giggles                                                                                                   And rolls on the rug,                                                                                                    Where everyone kisses,                                                                                                  And everyone grins,                                                                                                         And everyone cuddles,                                                                                                     And everyone wins.

When was the last time you giggled?  🙂

Happy Creating!

    • Oh, thank you Jodi! 😊 The class is soooo fun! Carla is teaching a dog class in the fall. I hope you can take it! Half the fun is seeing what other people create and post in the Facebook group. 🎨💜😊
