I Am PiCATso

I Am PiCATso

Lookit the crowd! My PiCATso show is the biggest draw of the year! We've had to turn people away. The critics love it! The museum crowd loves it! It's where the celebrities come to be seen. I can feel the love!

I'm here to tell you, I'm the real PiCATso. I know you've seen those postcards and stuff but those are fake. No one can paint like Keisha PiCATso. I am embarking on the Cubism phase of my career. I've told you in the past how cheap TW is. Brown oil paints were on sale so I'm also going through my brown period. I guess it could have been worse like yellow.

Against the wishes of the lazy ill TW, I've upped the ante cos I know you expect more from me. I've tried Picasso filters in several online and ipawd apps to show the differences and similarities of each. They take you through a few of my PiCATso phases. Let me know which you like best.

I'll start with a few from my new cubism period. I'll call it the mystery app cos I don't remember which one.

Dreamscope has a few different PiCATso filters.

My "blue" period courtesy of the second Dreamscope filter. I like how the Dreamscope filters "Picassofied" the background and left The Cat largely untouched.

I Am PiCATso

The Lunapic filter is more "classic" PiCATso. It doesn't have some of the features we associate with the master. I don't think PiCATso when I see it.

Which of the different interpretations is your fave? I know I have mine.

This week's photo challenges.

I Am PiCATso

Doorway was the theme for this week's Pet Photography Challenge. I would have loved to use one of the pics where I'm on the top of the door but the rules state it must be a recent photo. To offset the graininess of this one, we converted it to black and white. This also makes it more dramatic in my stunning opinion. Since it was taken at night with the ipawd, we also had to lighten and despeckle it although that really didn't help.

3 Lil Owls Photography Project's theme was Leading Lines. We had a bit of snow the other weekend. This is the building next door taken through our window. TW liked the way the windows were all iced up and the lines of snow on the siding. Not only doesn't this pic feature The Cat but it stinks compared to all the other ones the pros shared. I made an executive decision to show the original pic and not the one with a twilight action that I actually posted to the group cos I like this one better.

TW is getting discouraged with the professional challenge. She feels inadequate and out of her league. I've been telling her that for years. I think as long as she uses pics of The Cat, she has winners.

I'm gonna have to put my thinking cap on to figure out what to post about next week. TW isn't being much help. She's too busy barking and blowing her nose. Cos of all the vitamin D3 she takes, she hasn't had a cold in years but she missed a few days and now she's suffering for it. Not my problem.

Here's to a happy, healthy weekend!

I love the cubist art! They really do look arty and not photograph-y.

#1 is my favourite, but any picture with you is sure to be stunning.

Brian said...

Those are all so wonderful CK, we always love your stunning art!

The Menagerie Mom said...

Darn right you're PiCATso, CK! Your work is nothing short of stunning. This here human actually really likes the color brown, and so your brown phase is a huge hit here. And of course we also love your entries to the photo challenges!

I like all your artwork, CK, but the second one is my favorite this week!

Tell TW not to try to compare herself with the others. It's just for fun, and a chance to become better at taking photographs, right? Oh, and we agree ... photos with YOU in them are always winners! :)

The Swiss Cats said...

Wonderful art ! What a crowd, it looks like you're famous ! Purrs

Kitties Blue said...

CK, it seems as if all the petcretaries are sick. Our mom is wretched. She's hardly had any sleep in days as everytime she lies down, she tries to cough out all her innards. We liked all your art this week, but #2 and #5 are our favorites. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

I like your blue period piece. Beautiful!

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Hope TW feels better! I think the first and second PiCATsos are my faves :)

Jans Funny Farm said...

We empathize with you, CK. Jan has been annoyingly loud this past week too. Your art is good.

The Island Cats said...

We like your blue period, CK. You're a real arteest!

pilch92 said...

I love the mystery effect, but they are all beautiful. TW is an excellent photographer and deserves to join the challenges. I hope she feels better.


CK you are absolutely stunning and we love all of the artwork and the photos TW is submitting are quite good!!!

Mariodacat said...

Great art CK. All are very pretty and interesting. But, my favorite is hte "blue period." Maybe it is because the blue tones to the best with your natural furs, and your natural furs are beautiful as they are. It's fun to play around with other stuff tho.

Fantabulous once again CK and TW. I couldn't decide which artistic endeavour I enjoyed the I choose all of them.


Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Fantastic artwork! We can't decide on which one we like best.

CATachresis said...

CK, all your pics are outstanding, but I do like the Lunapic classic PiCATso one! The Staff has had to stop taking her D3 as she's having a "procedure" this week! For some reason she had to stop taking her vitamin supplements!! Go figure!! xx

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

The blue one is my favorite, CK ... we LOVE it. Of course, any effect with a stunning feline will be stunning in it's own right ... and no human can mess that up ... not even my Momma! ~Bear Cat

Tamago said...

Great artworks! Each period has its own character but all look so beautiful!
