Bob, Jr. On My Mind.......


One of my dealers was in the shop yesterday and commented on the fact she had seen one of these old wooden telephone shelves at a local sandwich shop with a cat painted inside. They are such wonderful shelves and look great hung as shadowbox frames, but not quite as popular as they once were. After Carrol left I started looking at the piece and thought.....hmmmmmmmmm, why not? I knew I wanted a sitting cat with a folk art look so I started googling free clip art for a "go by". I sketched him on the back of the shelf and painted away. Don't ask me how, but he ended up looking like Bob Jr , and if you look at my side bar to the left at my many animals and you will see what I mean. I never said I was a great artist, but I do like to have fun with it......and he makes me smile! I've got Bob, Jr. on my mind!

  1. You did good Jana my friend. I think your jacket is grrrrrrrreat. I had two containers of my flea market things stolen out of my car last night. One of the doors must not have locked. Sure makes me sick, but I should have put them in the garage. We do live and learn. That's one mistake I'll never make again.
    Hope you have a great day!!!!
    Hugs,

  2. Very cute...and it does look like your cat but maybe he posed for you and you didn't know it :)
    Are the other cats jealous?
