59 Words: Painting 13 – Purr


6″ x 6″ – acrylic on clayboard panel

Bugsy Here: Sparkle issued a challenge to HH (Lou) to paint purr without an indication of a cat. Well HH worked on it for a while and in the end, she could not help herself: yes, she put that little round ball in the lower left corner… That’s an indication of a cat for sure. However, when she showed it to Sheila and Susan at the studio, they did not recognize it as a cat until prompted.  So now… HH is pondering whether that means she succeeded or failed.  Doesn’t matter, she had fun with the challenge.

Thanks to our pal Sparkle The Designer Cat for this submission.

Since it’s my day to blog, and since Knuckles all but challenged me to tell you about his forray into the nip…. I’ll be glad to tell you all about it.

A few days ago, Bob, the new president of the condo board, came up to chat with Lou about something or other.  We love visitors, so when he parked his behind on the couch, I made my way to the cushion at his shoulder level and found a good spot so I could stare in his ear at his brains while he talked.  My staring sometimes bothers people, but Bob is a real lover of cats and he liked the attention.

Bob stayed about half an hour. During that time, I got some head scratches and he even let me smell his feet… not everyone likes that cuz my nose is cold.  So anyway, Knuckles did not participate in this social event at all.  I was wondering where he was, but since I had Bob’s attention all to myself, why should I go hunt up Knuckles?

After Bob left, HH walked into the kitchen and what did she find?  Knuckles was sitting there just bobbing back and forth.  He was stoned… Yep… he had gotten into the kitchen drawer and had found a bag of nip and he had spread it all over the floor. To me, it looked like he had been rolling in it the whole time Bob was there.  Anyway, I looked at Knuckles up close like and this is what I saw…. MOL…. he was loopy for sure.

nip2_edited-1Have a great day everybuddy…. and if’n you have any extra nip, send it our way. Knuckles used all ours up.

hugs, Bugsy

    MOL! That was some story, and we love the purrs painting!

  5. Sparkle says:

    That is a VERY cool painting! I think the cat in the corner is pretty awesome, actually – subtle, but quite distinct. I’m glad you took up my challenge!

  6. I imagine the tiny bubbles as vibrations of love coming from the cat–yes–I saw it (and the ears) right away!

  7. MOL! Knuckles, are you sleeping it off now??

    That painting does have a purry feeling to it. 🙂

    We think HH totally succeeded! 🙂 And no wonder Knuckles never came out to join the conversation!

    First off, thanks for the really good chuckle about the nip fiasco. Second, we think the painting is a total success. Mom did recognize the itty-bitty kitty in the corner, but we think it was still a furrabulous representation of PURR. Good job, Lou. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
