Trick Or Treat?

     Today is the day for spooks and goblins, witches and ghouls, and of course black cats. I don’t normally take issue with black cats but to be on the safe side I try not to let them cross my path, especially on this day of days.  
     Here’s a picture of a cat I painted a few years back and I think it says something about the resilience of the species. This gray tabby is blind (notice the sealed eyes) but he’s figured out another way to see. He doesn’t like what’s coming into his view—you. Is he a monster, or is he seeing one?
     That’s for you to decide.

         Happy Halloween!

  2. You're a good artist, and that cat is spooky. Now I'm a little creeped out. Happy Halloween!

  3. He's definitely seeing a monster.

    I AM a zombie and I own it. *grin*

  4. First, thank you so much for the nice words you had for my blog and for following. I hope that you will continue to read and find some inspiration/motivation into the future. Your list of credentials are quite impressive. I am wondering if you launched your writing career at the same time as you were teaching? I love teaching, but have been trying to devote time to making writing my primary work, but finding it difficult to balance/flip the time to each. Maybe you have some advice/tip/words of astounding wisdom?

    I think that the cat's intuitive eye is open and sending inner messages to proceed with caution; that danger may be approaching. Now, if the cat will actually listen to that little voice is yet to be determined....

  5. I'm guessing I'm the monster as cats aren't. Just my two cents.

    Have a terrific day and happy Halloween too. :)

  6. You painted that..... nicely done! Happy halloween!!!

  7. Joined your awesome blog through the Halloween Hop!

  8. Love the kitty!

    I’m here visiting from Jeremy Bates' blog hop, and I love your blog!

    My favorite scary book is IT (scared the crap out of me as a kid), movie that horrified me most was Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and I did not dress up this year, because I suck. One of my favorite costumes in the past was "Dead Baby Roller Blades."

    Happy Halloween!

  9. Thanks to those of you who stopped by from Blog Hop; I'm so glad you did.
    Welcome! And thanks to those of you who complimented my painting. My art supplies are still in the garage and I'm sure I'll dig them out one of these days when inspiration hits me. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  10. stopping by late bc something took me out of the city for a couple days, but hope u had a good weekend--and hop!
