Cat Rainbows and Fireflies!

Hello! Sorry I have been absent as of late, lots of stuff going on, so I’ll try to be better about updating the blog again. I’ve done a couple more digital art pieces for my Society6 and RedBubble Shops. Society6 is getting most of my attention so everything will go up there first, and eventually RedBubble will be updated.

First up are some happy cat rainbows! I saw them specifically for many items on the printing sites, which is why I haven’t painted them with actual paint (acrylics,) which was honestly the whole point of me getting an iPad. Sometimes I have ideas that work best in my mind as digital art, and I can better work with it for placing on all the different items available at Society6. I have painted over a thousand paintings, but you don’t see half of them in the print shops for that reason. They just don’t work or fit right. Anyway, Cat Rainbows! I couldn’t decide which color combo I liked the most, and I got a lot of different likes from others, so I put all 5 up. I stopped myself from doing more color combos…for now. You can find links to specific rainbows by clicking the corresponding rainbow sets shown: Rainbow 1, Rainbow 2, Rainbow 3, Rainbow 4, Rainbow 5.

Since it’s summer and summer in Pennsylvania means fireflies, I decided it was time to do some fireflies and kitties! I will paint something similar to this, or at least I hope to soon! These two black kitties were just surrounded by the lovely fireflies coming out for the season!

Chasing Fireflies!

The fireflies are out! One of the best things (aside from owning our house, having chickens, no shootings…) of moving to this small Pennsylvania town, is the fireflies! Growing up in California, I never saw a firefly, so it’s not only thrilling to my children to go out and catch them, it’s thrilling to me. Well, ok I don’t actually touch them because they’re still bugs and that’s just not going to happen. Instead I sit and watch the kids run around, jump up, slowly and steadily reaching hands out to catch one. Then I request a few be put in a jar so I can try to photograph them. =P

Fireflies
We’re actually heading to a forest area this weekend to see the Synchronous Fireflies again, and I can’t wait! It’s the most awesome sight seeing them light up at the same time. Sitting around a low fire, listening to the water in the creek flow by, and watching the forest light up.

Catching Fireflies
Ok, technically that’s glitter, but it was earlier this year and I needed to recreate fireflies. =P
