Cirque du Chats

I had soooooooooooo much fun with this piece! I smiled all the way through it (which was several days) thinking of - well, thinking of just about every cat I've ever known!

Acro-cats one and all, performing amazing balancing acts and death defying feats like high jumping and curtain climbing....

Being brave and bold and fearless - that's what it's all about, right?

Truth be told, I was tempted to keep this one. But that would set a dangerous precedent, and before you know it, I'd have to go get a REAL job. With regular hours....and a boss.....and structure and rules....and no *magic*. (Not that I'm qualified to actually DO anything, mind you - art is all I know.) So I'll happily send this one out into the world, and hope it brings a smile. It will list on eBay tonight at 9PM eastern. :)

In progress right now are two Halloween commissions and a darling little Tuxedo Cat Valentine's box with magical swirly sparkles. It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is just a month away! I must think of something wicked to send John this year (sort of a tradition with us, but more on that later, hehe)....

Oh! And there are two very cool giveaways coming soon too - big giveaways with lots of artists participating, so stay tuned for details. :)

Artful blessings until next time,

That table is so elegant & beautiful! You do such an amazing job painting these sort of things Carolee!

Jo James said...

You do truly impeccable work, Carolee!

Dylan and I were just saying last night that we can't imagine having to work a "real" job again. Sometimes I even have nightmares about minimum wage and retail hell. *shudder* Banish the thought!

Hugs- Joee

You're amazing Carolee! I was so excited to see you on the PFATT Marketplace!

When I seem to have trouble getting out of bed in the morning I always remember the things you wrote to me and it makes the day seem just that much better. Thanks for being there for hubby and I when I needed some encouragement! You are an inspiration! P2 (Pam)

Have a wonderful weekend.
