"Smurf"? Part II

Today "a girl" starts complaining about the last post. She didn't liked to be called "a girl". "Why are people here mentioned by there name, but am I "a girl". And why don't people want to know what I do with my cat in bed?  Sorry Isabelle (with one S, one B ans double L).
Sometimes she reminds me of the babysitter Kari McKeen ("It is like Carry, but with a K instead of a C, an Áh instead of en Éh , one R instead of two and I instead of an I-E).

So I had made a few cats in a week and took them to school, looking if I can find a place for it. While taking these photo's a girl walks into the lab and sees this cat. "It looks just like Smurf". In the ast she had told a lot of stories about her and her cat Smurf (and most of them, you don't want to know). So I looked at this cat, looked again to the girl. "here, you can have it", I said. "No, this cat is scary", she answers.

What's the conclusion??? The cat she shares her bed with, is it also scary? LOL. Well, it got another fine place. It is now looking over the Audio/Video office. He seems to be very happy there. BTW, why call your orange cat "Smurf".

Purple Rain, Purple Reign.

I got some new purple paint. Finally. It is a very nice shade and it mixes also well to get other tones. Mixes well with this sturdy yellow tiger.
I thought the cat looked a bit funny. It could use some funny titles too.

Ghislaine's Lucky Cat

A few weeks ago Ghislaine was walking to me on the lab. She had a free hour and was a bit bored, because she had to wait for the next lessons. Somehow I told her that I painted cat and she said she knew that. The funny thing was, she already had one of my cats. Now I am curious who also have cats of me that I forgot about.
 It's not strange I made a cat for her. In the past three - four years I have seen her in all kinds of cat like outfits.
This happy Lucky Cat has found his place on Ghilaine's message board in her room.

The old cat, watching over the lab

This cat is located in the window of my laboratory. It's a bit unlucky. The acryl above dried faster than the lower layers, so the paint cracked. Somehow it cracked beautiful.Although it is very small, it attracts some attention from time to time. He's looking over th lab. The big old candy camo cat.

Bloo Dream...

No idea why. I suddenly saw this green background in my head with a strange dark blue grid. Is it a bloo dream, or is it a Nightmare in Bloo".
Ay Ay.. Does the Macro reveal a little correction on the eye :-)

Kool Kat

My sister in Law very much liked my Scottish Tartan cat. When I went to my Brother's birthday, I gave her this painting. My sister in law often wears sunglasses.

Holy Cats, then and now!

The "First Aid" teacher of the Red Cross I got my lessons from paints traditional icons. I was a bit inspired by her stories. She has to pray a lot before she can start painting and she uses only the original ingredients to make paint. I do not know if it is always healthy. To get the right shade of yellow she used special cadmium components.

I thought it's nice to introduce holy cats. I have painted several already. My mother still thinks it's a setting sun behind the cats...
My first Holy Cat. I painted it about a year ago, using a lot of paint. This is a sitting cat with a dead bird. A few days before I painted this Azrael came in the house with a living bird. He ate the bird almost totally, only leaving the tail feathers. This tortoise cat can do this too. It's a holy cat! Acryl on canvas, 20 x 20 cm, "untitled", 2009.
The text on the cat says "Holy Cat". This holy cat is strolling in the magenta night. It looks like his aureole is like a torch into the dark night. "Blue Moon Holy Cat" Acryl on canvas, 20 x 20 cm, 2010.
