charcoal study of a mountain mama .. circa .. 1989
with pink foam shoes .. circa .. right now..
and poor put upon kitty .. circa right now ..

what can i say..
i get no respect for my art .. tsk ..

ps: no harm came to the kitty in the taking of these pictures ..

pss: thanks to some nasty toxic shit with which i sprayed this study ca. 20 years ago,
no harm came to this drawing ..
no kitty paw prints .. nada ..




psss: i came across an old portfolio of sketches i took 20 years ago when i was drawing from life models..
some were sort of okay, some not so great ..

All I can say is that the original must have been a work of art in its own right...

Aggie said...

SJ said...

Get those paws off her!I was talking to the cat your pink sheathed paws are OK.

And it should be ps, pps, ppps and so on :)

Getting catty about a perky set, eh?

boneman said...

Perhaps it was a compliment,
Kitty stares up with simple comment.
"Mom, I'll have some milk, please
since you're busy showing these,"
And all the while yon kitty thinks, you are Heaven sent.

Ricardo said...

Art and wildlife preserved. You can't beat that.

foam said...

crushed ..
if you are referring to the life model..
yes, she was a work of art ..
a hardworking farmer with strong shoulders, arms and worker's hands. her legs were also strong and rather dimply .. :) ..
i remember that because she mentioned them.

aggie ..
yep .. that cat knows how to get my attention.

/t.,
errie? i had to google that. of course, what popped up? a definition from the urban dictionary .. lol ..
oh, but thanks anyway ..

sj,
yep that cat has it's paws off of her by now ..

ps: as long as i keep paper off that floor that is ..

pss: as long as the cat doesn't jump on the table that is ..

psss: can you tell i don't give a shit? .. :)

phos,
yes, you definitely could say that .. :)

boneman ..
kitty probably thinks i move too slow ..
this here kitty wants attention all the time. it's presently on my lap...
purring.

ricardo..
all is good that ends well, eh?
..although the temptation was there to certainly give the kitty a good kick .. but no, i don't treat my kitties like that.

Little Lamb said...

That's you, foam all over.

foam said...

little lamb ..
yes, i'm rather messy like that .. :)

dianne said...

Wow Foamie dear, twenty years ago, I'm pleased you found your portfolio and thanks for sharing the drawing with us...very cool and your kitty is very cute as well. He/she is probably saying "I'll just get in this shot and maybe Mom will notice me". ♡

puerileuwaite said...

Hep cats would appreciate art. You just have the wrong kind (it probably doesn't even have a beret).

Helene (the Artist Formerly Known as Kate) said...

You're funny!
Its great that you kept the drawing! I have lost/trashed so much of my past work. I wish I had it now!

Henry the Dog's Mum said...

Said it before, will say it again. I love your stuff.....great photos. Like your humour xx

/t. said...

oops,

eerie, not errie

i didn't know errie was a word, foam, and i didn't mean to call your model a fat bitch... sorry

eerie -- cause she's ghostly green

Rolf said...

Great art, once again!

No harm to the kitty. Thank God! I was so worried.

I hope for more art from the twenty year old portfolio.

PLEASE!

foam said...

rolf ..
i might just do that ..
lots of stuff in that's kind of crappy though .. :)

/t.
suuuuure you didn't .. i'm kidding, i'm kidding... :) actually i thought you probably meant eerie, but i wanted to make sure it didn't mean something else. who figured it would mean fat bitch .. ;) the drawing is actually not greenish. it's the lighting that is giving it that greenish hue.

henry's mum ..
glad you are liking it... :) xx

well, helene ..
you'll just have to crank out some more work so we can have a looksee ..

pug
.. the only real hep cat in this house would be yours truly ..
i even come with a beret .. if i would only know where that sucker was.

dianne,
yeah .. 20 years ago .. when i thought i'd be that age forever .. sigh .. the kitty in the picture is my male cat. i also have a female and a dog.

AlmightyHeidi said...

But I can't.

J Cosmo Newbery said...

HLiza said...

Oh poor kitty..he envies the attention given to the art!

Pamela said...
