Mrs. Octopus and the Tea Party

Mrs. Octopus is the perfect hostess, she always has every situation in hand. She serves cake and tea on cute white porcelain with lavender roses. This is entirely designed by me, made by hand in polymer clay, hand painted with acrylics, the background is done in watercolor. I plan to do an entire series showing off her awesome ability to multi-task.

A Tale of Two Kitties

I just finished two watercolors, they are both of the same cat, but there is another cat involved, from a print I have long admired by Beth Van Hoesen. You can find it here, look for "Bugs". I have wanted to make something similar for a while now and when I saw a picture of my friend's cat, I thought, this is my chance! So I showed my friend the print and asked her to take a similar picture for me and in exchange I would give her one of the watercolors. The problem now is, which one?
