Illustration Friday - "Stay"

I was working on "cute," and it just got, well, too cute...
Sooo...cue the cat (and it's up to you, dear viewer, to decide exactly what the cat is looking at ;) ).
Regardless, and more to the point:  good dog...stay.

  10. Hello Elizabeth:
    Utterly delightful as always. We think that the 'well fed' cat is simply awaiting his turn in the hope of something tasty too - although possibly not a bone.

  12. I would not have minded just, 'cute,' at all. But I don't think you could stomach it, my dear. ;)

  18. Cats get away with a lot being such independant characters.

  22. I’m constantly drawn to this (NPI). The expressions again are a work of genius for me. There is so much mud for the gazer to play with here. For me, it sums up the whole cryptic feline v daft doggo thing perfectly. I hope the curiosity didn’t actually get the better of furtive and clandestine pussy cat in the end.

    Brilliant & entrancing.

  23. Hello Elizabeth! I am so pleased to have discovered your beautiful blog (by way of the Hattatt blog).

    I absolutely love this picture. There is a gorgeous innocence to it, and it's wonderful how each of the three subjects has their own definite character. I could sit and look at it for hours!

    Best wishes,
    Sophie.
