I think you should name it, "Weathered Cat".

Love to see its progress!


The background is really fun and I really like how the eye on the bird is disproportionate. It really makes it look FUNky. I'm a big fan of things being wonky and slightly off. It makes them really interesting. The mad screwy eyeball on the cat is great too.

I like the rain cloud in 1 & 2.


Always great eye candy here at your blog!! Also I really love the blushing fellow you've created! Hope you're gearing up for Art Fest, can't wait till I can make it out for the event some year!


I love it!!!!! Though I like the one where you can see all his body too.

Anyways, I´d name it Pink Cat and the Rain :)

Have a nice day!


I love all your crazy wonderful creatures!I don't know which word is the best... brilliant or vibrant? but ever colorful creative and unique!
I can't wait to see your next creation:-)
Have a nice week, hugs Anja


thank you for sharing your progress michelle! i always love to come visit your blog. the eyes in your paintings always intrigue me. your new blog banner is awesome!


Love it. I liked it with the bird too. So I am thinking . . . "Raining Cats and" . . oh wait . . maybe you could sneak a small dog in the corner? Ok, so my other one was "Smelly Cat, Smeeelly Cat" but I don't know if that really describes the picture unless you could put a smelly scratch and sniff on it somewhere? Okay, in all seriousness, he reminds me of the T.S Eliot cat Skimbleshanks, The Railway Cat. You can tell he has got a little sass and a take charge attitude behind those sleepy eyes.


Titles are sooooo hard... he's just so cheerful looking even with those huge drops of rain on his head... such an encouragement to us in the Northwest... to not let the weather keep us from smiling and being happy!! Love you... and love your cat!!


love this michelle! although i do think his little legs were cute!!!


Oh I'm loving this cat piece. The first name/title that popped into my head was "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Cat"
