YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL TO BE AN ANGEL CAT

This month "Art Journal Journey has the theme "Things with Wings"  and "Mix it Monthly" has the theme "Angels/Saints" and I had no doubt as to what I wanted to make for my first entry. 

I drew pretty little flowers




and trees




and a pretty little angel cat whose sanctimonious stare was seriously scary, and no, you don't want to see it, it's gone.


Then my Muse had a much better idea.


You don't have to be beautiful to be an Angel Cat.







Linking to "Paint Party Friday" where artists share their art.

St. Peter must be quaking in his shoes with that on the prowl. Love the wee flower, and the cat is absolutely amazing. The starry sky is terrific. Love it, Awesome !!

What fun! I think the cat's peeved because his nine lives are used up and he wishes he'd been a little more canny, lol. Love it all!! :o))

Beo said...

What a nice Story! I think your angel cat IS beautiful on its very own way and with wonderful blue eyes. But I wonder where this cule flower and the little trees have gone...

Valerie-Jael said...

Gorgeous piece, Sheila, your little cat looks like it's terrorising the heavenly mice! Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey! Valerie

ULKAU said...

Great, great, great!
I've never seen an angel-cat before, but I imagine, that my striped cat (he died some years ago) must look now as this angel! Ulrike

Your angel cat really is wonderful.
I can't help but imagine a little story book to go with your painting.
Happy March to you and yours!

Ahh...your sweet angel cat reminded me of my Sparky Cat and I've been on the most lovely trip down memory lane. I loved that cat. She had the most unique personality. Your heavenly sky is like a dream. A very sweet art piece. Now my curiosity must butt in and know where the pretty flower and tree have gone??? And with what/how did you paint their tiny features? Teach me art please...thank you.

Such a lovely post at all Sheila... "it's gone"...lol

and this is my Paula in heaven for sure... she died many years ago but she did exactly look like this one here when she wanted to have some piece and quiet and I wanted to play with her.
Thank you so much for joining us at Art Journal Journey with this wonderful angel -cat!
I had the idea to paint my Ridgebacks as angels for Mix it Monthly... but I think this will be a bit to diffucult for me..maybe I do it - you inspired me a lot here!

You don't have to be beautiful...you just have to be what you are. Love your sky too! xox

janie said...

Love your clouds and the stars but that is one seriously scary cat!

The Happy Whisk said...

Art is so much fun. Well done on your cat.

Margik said...

This is such a brilliant piece and what fabulous is your little and sweet cat. I also love the fantastic background. Very creative, Sheila!

Some kitties are just feisty and I think that your angel kitty was a feisty kitty! So fun and so cool!

Tammie Lee said...

how funny that the first angel cat is too scary
love each piece, the first two are fun in their simplicity
i don't think i have drawn a kitty since i was a little girl when i entered a funny pencil sketch into the faire and won a ribbon.

lee said...

I am liking your angel cat

Evergreen Mo said...

Love the flying cat. He looks a bit apprehensive. I am a worried you did not provide him with a parachute. Cruelty to animals and all that. Again a very clever image.

CS-CreativArt said...

Oh Sheila, your angel cat is so beautiful and the background with shining stars is super.

Jeannette said...

love your flying cat,its so cute,he is looking of the world,love it this fun pieces.

Pia Rom said...

Haha Sheila, you crack me up with your posts everytime: "whose sanctimonious stare was seriously scary" ;) You are too funny and what to say, the ringed angel cat looks a bit like a bee, but who says bee´s arn´t beautiful, hihi! Love all the glimmery light what surrounds her and her pinkyelectro tail! I sware she can correct her direction while flying and get the impulsion from....oh maybe my imagination has going crazy a bit, hope you don´t mind, hihi ♥ Conny Mix It Monthly

LonettA said...

Fabulous post ... it makes me smile! I love your astoundingly angel cat with the bright blue eyes and the pink tail! She has a little depressed face ... what´s troubling her? Perhaps she is lonely.
So beautiful picture!
Hugs, Annette

Fodie Ann said...

Ah, I wondered when Sheila's cats would resurface! Angel Cat is a lovely addition to Sheila's whimsical cats, although with that rather grumpy expression, Angle Cat needs a cuddle or a tickle to cheer her up! The little flower at the start of the post was beautiful as well, but I suppose that you would not see it from high in the sky flying with Angel Cat. X

Anjas-Artefaktotum said...

Haha I love your humour as always. This creation is so lovely and also scary. Your angel cat has taken my heart in a storm.
Big hugs Anja

Renee Stien said...

Hugs Giggles

Lynn Cohen said...

Now that cat is the cutest! Such expression! Fun art!!!! HPPF!

My name is Erika. said...

I think your angel cat really has the heart of a cat, since the look is so cat like. I think he is thinking that he hasn't decided his 9 lives were up and he can't believe he has become an angel. Great piece.

Jim Neil said...

A flying cat with an electric tail! Your creativity knows no bounds, Sheila! Very clever indeed.

Jo said...

What fun! I love it. Thanks for joining my blog.

Little Artbee said...

Your angel cat looks very good in front of this soft colored background. She really looks as if she flies. So nice!
Dear greetings

Sharon Fritchman said...

Jackie said...

Such a wonderful, creative piece - I don't normally like cats, but angel cat must be an exception. Jx

Electra said...

I think possibly angel-cat is afraid of heights...

Love your flower and tree ... and the angel cat too!
