Cody On Canvas-Semi "Wordy" Wednesday

The other day I was reading one of my favorite blogs Max The Quilt Cat and was thrilled to read that "HH" who if you didn't already know, happens to be a super talented painter as well as a genius writer, is participating in a 30 Paintings 30 Day Challenge from the Leslie Saeta blog.

HH chose "Cats" as her theme for the challenge, and soon after beginning her paintings she realized that she needed more photos of cats to paint. She posted a request for more cats on her blog and I was all over it!.

There is nothing I love more than original art, I have a deep appreciation for it, and the time it takes to create it, since I draw and come from a family with a heavy artistic influence.

So, I submitted this photo of Cody.


This is one of my favorite photos because it shows the gorgeous green of his eyes.


HH emailed me yesterday with the finished product, and gave me the option of purchasing it at a discounted price. Here is the painting, done in an "impressionistic" style, and I am completely in love with it!!

Thank goodness HH accepts PayPal! I purchased the painting and cannot wait for it to arrive! When it does, I will photograph it again after it is proudly displayed on the wall.

Would you like a painting of YOUR cat done by the incredibly talented HH? All you have to do is email her a jpg photo (close up is best so she can see the eye color of your kitty). Email her at: MaxTheQuiltCat at gmail dot com. You can refer to her blog for more details here.

I am completely in love with this painting of my precious Cody, and I can't wait for it  to arrive!!

    1. thank you!!! Cody's eyes are sooo beautiful! Believe it or not, they are the same color as mine! So nice of you to visit us Clowie! xoxo

  35. I didn't realize before that Cody had such pretty green eyes. Not many of us are green eyed. Only Constance, I believe. Anyway... the background of your blog matches the nice colour of your eyes, Cody. Is that why you picked it? purrs

    1. Actually the blog background was picked at least a year before that photo was taken, maybe 2 years since we are now blogging 3 years. I couldn't believe it when I saw that it matched!

  36. Oh, and the peep. Peep #1 has green eyes, too, but she doesn't really count. She's just a peep, you know. purrs
