Happy Halloween!

My cats wanted nothing to do with Halloween this year. Thankfully, the kids and my Mom were still game. Although Tiarnan escaped my makeup chair this year because my Mom bought him a creepy clown mask. So I had to deal with two clowns this year-doing my mom’s makeup as Twisty from AHS, and my son’s mask. Do.not.like.clowns.


Anna was easy, she wanted to be a cat. So I talked her into letting me make her into a skeleton cat like from my paintings. When last minute I realized I didn’t have any green eyeshadow, (I mean really, why would I?) I resorted to just making the normal golden eyes that I give my skellie cats!

Hooray for Autumn!

I could see them flying past my second story window as I painted. Tomorrow we head to the forest! Today, Puddy cat, dear old Puddy cat, got a little tromp in the leaves and a walk.

Ok that’s not Puddy above, that’s Bandit who has adopted us, even though he technically lives across the street. He and two other neighbor cats greet us every morning and afternoon for food on the porch.
