Daily Photo Reprise: A Sudden Inspiration, 2013

Jelly Bean has a sudden inspiration and reaches for the brushes.

Bean had a sudden inspiration and reached for the brushes this afternoon while browsing the afternoon from the bathroom windowsill. A portrait of the chipping sparrow who’s been singing from the pussy willow just outside? An impressionist painting of green and dappled light and color? A modern non-objective abstract?

Probably just the brushes looked like he could have some fun with them. He was in quite the active mood today—racing all over the house playing with everything, rumbling in the tub and leaping up onto the shelf to look down at me like a crazed kitty ax murderer.

Compositions in Black and Green 2014 and other calendars from The Creative Cat

What better photo could show one of my black Creative Cats in their signature green and white bathroom? Did Jelly Bean plan this? I was enchanted even while taking the photos. As you can see, “A Sudden Inspiration” is the cover photo for this year’s Compositions in Black and Green 2014 calendar

Compositions in Black and Green 2014, a features the Fantastic Four and their Mama Mimi in the vintage mint green bathroom, just being their lovely selves. Based on Compositions in Black and Green 2013 with all new photos, this year even includes Emeraude and Lakota! I still have a few left.

Special Offer for Black Cat Adoptions

Now through 2014, I’ll send a copy of my Compositions in Black and Green 2014 calendar to anyone who rescues or adopts a black cat so that you can use it to keep track of all the wonderful things your house panther does. Or keep track of the house panther you’ve rescued so that you can keep track of veterinary records and send it along with the person who adopts the cat you’ve rescued.

Just email your rescue story to me, or a copy of your adoption contract—all personal information you don’t want to share eliminated of course—and a photo of your cat. I will keep all of your information completely private unless you want to share it with my readers.
