David and I did not make the trip to Montreal for Mother's Day this year - it just happened that way ! My mom is coming for a visit to my house next weekend so we will celebrate then.
I am only a mom to my furry children and as yet, they haven't given me any gifts today except for reminding me to fill the water bowl, to feed them and to let them out for a wee ! Oh, well...
I did get the gift of spending a couple of hours in the studio this morning. I have been doing a lot of doodles lately. I am enjoying just picking up my little blank journal and my favorite Micron pens and spending a little mindless relaxation time.
This morning I took a look through my doodles and found some images I really liked. I loved this crazy cat with his hat and his little house. I also loved this weird Madame Butterfly that was further up on my doodle page. I cut them out and added them to a painted background in my art journal.
Then, I spent some time filling the page in with paint. I think it looks like the cat is getting ready for a party hence the title "Crazy Kitty's Birthday" !
No great fancy work of art but I really like the cat. Who knows, maybe Crazy Kitty will become a character in some other pieces ? He kind of reminds me of my cat Azzy (short for Aslan),the little tabby with a big personality. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning. The best part of the process was taking my mindless doodles and putting them into a new environment.

Off to enjoy this beautiful spring day outside now ! Cheers !
