Psychedelic Cat Headlines Woodstock

Psychedelic Cat Headlines Woodstock

Happy Caturday! TW reminded me that this week we she celebrated the 47th anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in Bethel, NY. While her parents wouldn't let her go, some of her friends did go to slop in the mud. Heh heh! Seems like a festival woofies would like but not us cats. Anyhoo, I created a new piece of art out of an old one for the occasion.

This is the original piece I created in Pizap for a #Pawpawty in 2011. TW hadn't started messing with Photoshop and I hadn't started messing with silvervine yet. You should have seen the time she had cutting out that headband. MOL! She still cringes. Now it would take her about 10 seconds with the magic eraser.

We found a template to make it even more psychedelic so here's this week's artsy fartsy masterpiece.

So what do you think? I think I should have performed cos I look more stunning than even Jimi Hendrix. I am experienced—at biting, that is. It has a ring to it: The Cathy Keisha Experience. Of course I would have stolen the show and the festival.

Check out the other creative cats over at the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.

The hubby was there but I was a mere child of 11. I always say that Woodstock is generational; to a certain demographic it is wild concert, to another it is a little yellow bird.

How awesome and trippy! One of my human's best buds was there with his parents... he was four years old.

Looking rad, CK! We ourselves don't have any stories or know of anyone that went to Woodstock, but at least we have you to give us The Cathy Keisha Experience!

CK we love the retro hippie art and you as a flower power kitty 😻🌸🎨🎸

The Cathy Keisha Experience does sound terrific and that poster is meowvolous! Mom doesn't like crowds or to get dirty, but she thinks Woodstock would have been cool, but she lived on the West Coast. She saw most of the artists who appeared at Woodstock at places like the Fillmore at even at her college. That's where she saw Jimi Hendrix! Lots of memories. She and Dad went to see Brian Wilson last weekend. On the way home she told Dad that their generation had the best music!

Woodstock was a bit before my time, and not really my thing anyways (surprise, surprise), but that concert poster is absolutely pawsome. I may have braved the mud, muck and hippies to see you there ;)

Cathy Keisha said...

Would I make you guys jealous if I told you that TW has a friend who was babysat by Janis?

Kathleen Sturgis said...

Just like TW, my parents wouldn't let me go but some of my friends were there and had fun celebrating this week. I did see Crosby Stills and Nash that summer at Fillmore East. I met Richie Havens a few years back when he was signing autographs after a concert, then ran into him (almost literally)two years later in Walmart in Secaucus New Jersey. What a lovely man he was.

Marie Symeou said...

I was only a baby but I do love some of the music of that time. My younger brother wasn't even born then but he's always been fascinated by Woodstock.
