AED Day 12 - Family Portrait




My art for today is this cut paper "portrait" done while I was watching reruns of Project Runway (my secret addiction) last night. I loved juxtaposing this sophisticated lady with her playful cat! I know so many people whose pets are companions, children, and definitely family! (including me!)
Although it is done in cut paper, I'm posting it here for AED and will also put it on my other blog, Paper Perks.
Hope everyone who is participating in Art Every Day Month is enjoying it as much as I am.
Thanks Leah!!

Wow, what an amazing piece. It is so beautiful and bright eyed and not just because there is an animal involved. The lady's aura feels vibrant and I love her eyes too. Wonderful work.
A continuation of a very happy creative every day month.

This is great Judy! Do you think you may recreate this in fabric?

I love everything about this but especially the expression on the cat's face!

U either 'in' or U 'out'! ha-ha. I am not a religious watcher but I get it. I love your piece! Cat's must be the theme of the day. See Leah's post and mine! Great work and yes I am enjoying this as much!

This is so pretty and I love the title.

Leah said...

Oh, I adore this portrait!! It's amazing!

I too have a not-so-secret addiction to project runway and love to draw while watching it. :-)

There is nothing like a cat choosing to spend time with you. Beautifully captured.

Wow! This is a new favorite of mine...so much expression in the eyes and I love how you've included Kristy in such a playful/comfortable way.

I LOVE your paper cuttings! The fabric of the couch really helps the rest of the picture to stand out. I know so many people who love project runway. I've never watched it...maybe I should?

norma said...

This is fabulous! And to think you did it while watching PR. I'm also a fan, but think that this season was disappointing.

Cat said...

This is great! Like the cat is the alter-ego... come on let's play!

Funny, I was looking at it and imagining fabric instead of paper... then I read Terri's comment about recreating it in fabric.

That's a great portrait! I think the little Kristy cat is about to play with the earrings.
