Arty with Marv (and my Fill Ins!)

Did you guys miss me yesterday?

Because Mom has been busy because of work, we have been writing out posts on Sunday and setting them up for the week…except for Friday…we have been trying to do the Friday Fill Ins on Thursdays. But this week, we were so far behind in commenting, we spent Thursday evening evening doing that, so I, Marvelous am doing Friday Fill Ins NOW!

1. My Chinese zodiac animal is a MONKEY!!!

2. My zodiac sign is Cancer the CRAB!

3. Income tax season does not bother me at all! I don’t have an income!!

4. In hindsight, I would NOT have bit Mommy’s hand last summer…she is still not 100%

Next…My ART!

I think I remember what I did…sort of…
I took this picture


It is kind of blurry so we opened it in Photoshop and ran Sharpen on it
and then we took it to Lunapics where we played around with it.

And it looked like this….


We brought it back into Photoshop and applied some more filters and gave it a vignette and it ended up like it is at the top!

I gotta run…Mommy wants to get back to work…I will be happy when they are done with all of this!!!!

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers Marv. I know you are sorry for biting your mom, I hope she is 100% soon. I love your art, very pretty. XO


  2. Marv, your art is stunning; though, we miss your smile. Why so serious? We are sure that bite is a regret for you, but even with what Mom Barb had to endure, we know she forgives and loves you. Hope she has some time off this weekend to play with you. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

    That is a beautifurs sepia-mono rendition of you Marv! Good workings from that busy mama!!! …but wait – what??? How big a bite was it that the hand which feeds you is only at 87%??? Marv, was that the monkey being mischevious, or the crab being defensive? Maybe both? Give her some extra smoochies tonight, ‘kay? Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx


  4. I’m with you on the bite bit Marv BUT hindsight is an exact science and you were not the cat you are now.

    Mum will be OK, its just as she’s not 19 anymore (neither are us either…) so it might take a while longer. We all want to be better right now though right?



  5. Great answers, and nice art ! We know what it means to have a busy human, and we often wonder if humans really know to set priorities ; it’s easy though : cats first ! Purrs


  6. Oh Marv I know you would like to take that hand-bite back but let’s just be happy your Mommy is ALMOST 100%! Meanwhile, love love LOVE your artsy photo……the effects are wonderful……we love how the art effects can add texture to things that are PLAIN. Cool !

    Love, Teddy


  7. Marv, we did miss you yesterday. We couldn’t find you. Glad you are back now. We do really like your art work. And your fill-ins are just the best. We so hope that both of you have a super week end.


  8. Marv, I know you would never do that bitey if only you could have thought about it first. Just help her by giving lots of loves and do vacuum while she is gone during the day That will really cheer her up. Oh, and perhaps do a few dishes?
    Loves to you and your mommy.



  9. I am sorry to hear your mommy’s hand is still not right. I hope it soon heals properly. Your art is great.


  10. We love that artwork, handsome Marv! We’re sorry Mommy’s hand is still not exactly right, but we know she loves and totally forgives you. So it’s okay. Now go and help her with her work, okay? Hugs!


  11. Nice artwork, Marv ❤ I am a Horse, *looks in the mirror and makes herself big* I think it shows huh…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Day and some Healing Pawkisses for your mom as some bites really take a lot of time to heal…sigh… ❤ ❤ ❤
