Cats and Guitars

CatsGuitarsPromoMy house is filled with cats and guitars. When I heard that Kate of Hauspanther fame was producing an art show celebrating the connection between cats and guitars, well, you know I had to send some of my art there. I thought of just photographing our house, showing all the cats hanging around all the guitars, but that would just reveal what terribly messy people we are.

Instead, I made four cool cats playing guitars shaped pillows. Below is a photo from the gallery showing them in place for the show.

Cats and Guitars, the show, runs for the month of January at a cool gallery in Phoenix, AZ, called Chartreuse. If you live in Phoenix or will be visiting there sometime this month, be sure to visit the show. I’d love to hear what you think of the show. cats at gallery

Calendar Cutie

I entered an Evanger’s Dog Food pet photo contest where the winners got featured in a calendar. I don’t remember how long ago I entered and had completely forgotten about it until I received an email the other day telling me that “After reviewing nearly 3000 entries, we were only able to include a few of the wonderful photos that were submitted.  The decision process was not easy, but your photo made it into the finals and got the votes to make your photo a holiday featurette in our calendar!  Congratulations, your pet just reached celebrity status!”

5229478201_712b32454b_oI had to go to their website to see which photo won and low and behold, it was my favorite photo of my favorite kitten that we had at our house five years ago. You might remember me posting their photos to this blog back then.

So my cutest kitten ever photo is in a collage of other cute critters on the top half of the March page, which is perfect because March is both my and Mike’s birthday month. I can’t wait to receive my calendar.2016 1-11 jan-march_Page_10 1

Dallas Library Display

If you live in Dallas or are lucky enough to be visiting during the month of December, swing by the Dallas Public Library Lochwood branch and check out my display of crocheted critters and digital collages in their front case. This is my second Dallas Public Library display. You might remember that last year my work was in the White Rock Hills front window for the month of November. Mike and I are power users of the library system so it makes me quite happy to have them like and display my work. Enjoy.
