a true labour of love

Besides having a lingering cold (going on +2 weeks now!), and other family health issues, this has been what's keeping me busy.

"itty-bitty kitty"...
the latest in my Li'l Art framed sculpture collection.

It took some time to complete this one. Each blade of grass was rolled out and applied individually, and is varied from dark to light as it gets closer to the horizon.

But the hardest part of completing this piece was due to it's inspiration,

Our poor little Houdini!

We only had him for 6 months, having to put him down at 8 mo. due to Feline Infectious Peritonitis.

Such a short time to have pet, at yet how much he affected our lives, and oh how much we miss him!

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to sell this one, my "itty-bitty kitty" may just find a place on my wall!

ahh what a nice tribute to your little kittycat..its hard when one comes into your life then has to leave just as quick. I think that needs to go on your wall. Very pretty.
