Kitty in Bloom – Sharpie on Vellum

“When you cannot make up your mind between two evenly balanced courses of action, choose the bolder.”

Kitty in Bloom – Sharpie on Vellum

Here’s another flowerdy critter.  The cat and the daisies are from Dewi’s references at WetCanvas.  It’s so fun to combine the two and end up with something oddly wonderful.  I guess I took today’s quote to heart.   🙂

About William Joseph Slim

The courageous British commander William Joseph Slim, who led forces during both world wars, led an impressive turnaround of the so-called Forgotten Army in Burma during World War II after he trained them how to fight in jungle conditions. He was born in 1891 in Bristol. He joined the army as a second lieutenant at the outbreak of World War I and was wounded in the battle of Gallipoli. He served as governor-general of Australia, a ceremonial role, from 1953 to 1960. He died in 1970.

    I like what you are doing with the sharpie, Beth! …not just the flowers and the bold darks but the hatch ink lines that change direction and describe the form. This is great!

    When I couldn’t decide on the course of action… I thought it said Balder, not Bolder, dang it… now look at me! 🙂
    This is so “groovy”! It reminds me of art my sister used to buy when daisies were on everything. Very nice!

    What a beauty in black and white. I really like seeing your sharpie marks in the fur.
