No Mice Today

Snow day play.  pLaYiNg again in Mix it Monthly February challenge. I do love my furry companions and the ones who live in my neighborhood too.  We have a kookoo cat named Seiko who lives at my neighbors barn.  He is afraid of nothing and hunts all the time.  This is a silly homage to him. No mice today.

IMG_0112Not quite as true to all the colors, my red keeps slipping in and a bit of purple too, but another loose sketchy drawing.

IMG_0111That’s how I feel with no chocolate today!  Join in the fun.

    Adorable. No mice, no chocolate and too much snow. Glad you got through your finance stuff.

    No mice. No chocolate. Such a sad state of affairs. At least you made time to play on this snow day! Love the texture in this piece. 😀
    Just out of curiosity… Dark or milk?

    I feel like I know this guy! Grumpy Cat has competition!
    Hope you are enjoying the snow as much as possible! Being warm and cozy inside and looking out at it is the way to go!

    Seiko is a sweetie…hope he finds a mouse soon.

    No; he does not look pleased. This is great; when it snows, might as well make art right? I’ve been in my art room most of day – taking a break with the treadmill and cooking spaghetti sauce! 🙂

    Stay warm! xo

    Love this! Looks like my cat, Sprinkles, who is a big hunter too!

    Such a look at total exacerbation on Seiko’s face! This is priceless, Corrine. Love the “tell all” eyebrows, too! Stay cozy! Mwah! KayW

    No mice? No chocolate? What about fleas? Does she love to crack them? Because I think I know a dog right in her neighbourhood who could help her out. 😉
    A beautiful painting!

    Amazing tribute Corrine, the expression is truly sublime. I love the texture created by the typing underneath, superb. Ha ha ha my old cat Billy used to pull the exact same face when he bought me live mice to play with, I’m sure he thought I was a cat too and wondered why I wasn’t as enthusiastic about it as he was!!!!!!!! Huge hugs x x x x

    Oh I love him! Cute and done in your own authentic way Corrine, great!

    I know how you and he feels. I am trying not to eat any sweets and I have lost 6 pounds but it is so hard to do without chocolate! My kitty loves to hunt mice too. She is Target, the one I drew for this challenge. She loves to bring them in as little presents and I have to check to make sure she doesn’t have one every time I let her in.

    Poor kitty!
    He is so sad, hmm, he starts to think…
    “I’ll go to Corrine’s house, she’s a softy to us furry guys”!

    Love the expression on this guy! And those eyebrows are such a fun feature. Hope you fared well with all the recent snow. We’re expecting a bit more again tonight.
