Cat with Attitude

This is my friends cat Beau.  I painted him on velvet paper which is wonderful, however, if you make a mistake its almost impossible to erase.
I wanted to wish all my friends here a Merry Christmas and a Happy and healthy New Year!

Also, I won't be posting for awhile... I took a good fall after shopping last Friday which left me with a concussion.  I've had a headache everyday as well as an achy neck...so no painting for a few weeks.  After leaving the hospital the doctors told me to rest... no driving... so I'm glad I basically finished all my shopping.

It's been an incredible year and I look forward to seeing all of your work in the New Year.   Hugs to all....

  3. Not good news on the health issue. Take care of that, we will patiently wait for the new year. This is so well done, looks alive. I’m sneezing since I’m allergic. :-) Take care, happy holidays, see you in the New Year.

  11. So sorry about your fall, Hilda! Falls can be brutal and I hope you recover quickly and completely! Love your cat! We used to have a cat with similar markings. Loved him to pieces!

  13. Oh, Hilda, I'm sorry about your fall and concussion. Wishing you a spreedy recovery! I know too many people who have been injured in falls lately. I am going to strive to be more careful. Take care of yourself. Happy New Year! Wishing you a great 2019!

  14. Sorry, I got sidetracked by your fall and didn't get to comment on the lovely cat. Wonderful job on his fur!

  15. Oh, Hilda, how dreadful that a fall left you concussed! It probably means that -- in addition to not painting -- you have to also limit time reading or viewing "screens" and such. Very boring for poor you! Rest is the best remedy, I understand, so here's hope that with patience you soon recover.

    Your cat painting is a grand portrait of the obviously self-possessed Beau. Your friend must be delighted.

    I reciprocate your best wishes for the New Year, thank you for all your kind comments, and look forward to our continued enjoyment as blogging buddies! Get well soon!

  16. I hope by now you are MUCH better. Sorry I had not visited sooner but prayers are being held for you. It is alarming to the system when it happens so fast. I was a scardy cat for quite a while after a bad fall. which brings up the cat. WONDERFUL the way you captured Beau's ATTITUDE so the title is perfect.

  17. Oh, Hilda! Just getting to blogging and finding out about your fall!! Hope your headaches are over and you are healing nicely!! So sorry this happened to such a lovely person! The kitty is wonderful - especially the eyes. I have worked on the velour paper which I assume is similar. Wonderful for pets but, as you said, almost impossible to make corrections! Hope we see a new post very soon. Best wishes for a super 2019!

  19. Hi Hilda - I was standing at my easel today and wondering how you were doing since your fall. I was painting a portrait in pastel and thinking "I'll never do it as well as Hilda"! Please take care of yourself - thinking of you - Connie
