Although my original, now scratched post took five paragraphs to get to this point, I will now do it in two sentences. If you read my post from yesterday, you might remember that my first answer for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge explained how I chose can as my guide word for 2017. I took that sentiment, added one of my most significant life muses, and with that created today's piece for Athena's Caturday Art blog hop.
Even more importantly, please know that I did not draw this one just for myself. This one is for all of you as well. We know that all of you friends of ours have accomplished much, and that you have boundless potential to achieve whatever you desire. You're all pretty amazing, if you ask us, and no matter what you set your mind to, you can do it!
As a side note, for those who might not know, the kitty starring in this piece is of course my angel Rosie. She is, obviously, my very own Rosie the Riveter. She guided and inspired me through more than two decades of my life. Also, for those of you who have been following my art for a while, you might realize that this new piece is actually a sort of recreation of an older piece, which you can see here.
Wishing you all a most perfect Caturday!
Our Tip of the Day:Never underestimate your kitty! People often think that dogs can be trained, and that cats cannot. This is not the case, though. Both dogs and cats can be trained, can be taught tricks and even boundaries and something along the line of manners. Our kitties can accomplish much, as long as we are willing to employ patience and training techniques that suit a cat's mentality. Treats and toys can be used as positive reinforcement as well as to help focus a kitty. And, just as with a pup, it can benefit your kitty to help them expend extra energy prior to a training session, such as in the case of an active kitten. Your kitty can do it, and so can you!
