Hello, October! I love this time of year because it’s Black Cat Awareness Month. To celebrate, I’m kicking it off with the first of several giveaways. The first pet portrait giveaway is really special for personal reasons. Scroll down to the end for the giveaway details but you may want read the post anyway, because CATS.
This time last year Clyde was in his element enjoying the garden and this year he isn’t. I miss him, but when a parcel arrived today, I felt he’d returned home. No, not his ashes but a beautiful pen and ink portrait that captures his devil ears and piercing gaze. As you know, I’m a huge believer in memorial cat art. I love photos but original art has a soul that no digital print can replicate.
This was Clyde supervising the Halloween decorations last year. “Barely acceptable but my job is done.”
This year it’s more like, “Jolly good job and it’s good to be back home.” That’s so Clyde. He visits sometimes as a very noisy demanding crow. So what else is new?
I haven’t decided where Clyde wants to hang out yet. Where would you hang your pet portrait?
A little about Greg King, the artist.
Naturally, he’s a cat man. He has three cats: Meow Meow, Doodley Doo and Lola. They live in Illinois.
Go find Greg on Instagram @inking_blues He’s new there and has an interesting variety of work. I LOVE his latest owl and calligraphy.
One lucky person will win an original 16 X 20 signed pen and ink drawing of a pet. This is not a digital print but a one-of-kind art work. It can be a cat, dog or bird. The art work will be matted, framed and shipped in the U.S. The value is $250.00.
