Caturday Art: Blizzard

Although we didn’t have a blizzard, we did have our first snow on Wednesday. Not only was it our first snow of the season but our first snow ever since we moved here. That’s right. It never snowed last year. Mom was pretty excited about the snow but I didn’t really find it that interesting. She says I’ll feel differently about it when I go out in it. What? When does she think that is going to happen?

Once the treats came out there was no way I was interested in looking out into the cold at the snow!

When she was trying to get me to look at it so she could take a picture, all I wanted to do was get away from the cold, open door. Silly mom. She even brought out the treats to try to get me to stay by the door. Well, that was the end of that. All I could look at then was mom and the treat bag.

Original for blizzardMom was working on this week’s art when it started snowing so that was her inspiration for this piece.

Here’s the original photo and the boring technical stuff for anyone who cares. In Photoshop, mom used the render clouds filter on the background and the mezzotint filter on me. Then, in honor of the snow, she used the blizzard action on the background. She applied these effects to everything but my right eye. Finally, she added a brushed aluminum frame.

BlizzardStay safe and warm!

    Whoa! Great art! Where did your Mom get the blizzard action. That musta been in the bundle that TW wanted to get but never did. I don’t blame you for not wanting to be near the door but snow in CA?

  2. Allie: honestly, you have the right idea. My humans let me out one winter day – and all my lovely green grass had been STOLEN. In its place was 15 INCHES of white cold…STUFF!

  3. Just lovely! I wish we had a little snow on the ground.

  4. What a cool picture, Christy! You look like you’re in the middle of a snow storm…but better. 🙂

    That’s a lovely blizzard portrait of you.

  8. That is a beautiful snowy picture, Christy. so good that it’s only a picture 😉 I don’t like snow either. Every year I stay inside the house, until the snow leaves the…garden 🙂 Warm Pawkisses are on the way 🙂 <3

  9. that looks nice but we gotta agree with you, your Mom is a little nutty to think you would want to sit by the cold 😉

  10. Christie, photoshoped snow is WAY better than the real thing. Its NOT so cold!

  11. Lovely!

    No snow here, unfortunately. London weather is just boring. At the moment it’s damp and quite windy.

    Very nice art. Your Mom is great at photo editing to be able to leave your eye out of the filter.
