Come sit with me


I'm sure you can tell that I'm once again joining Jo at Let's Art Journal, our host this month at Art Journal Journey whose theme is flora and fauna.


The sentiment, "Come sit with me," was painted using my beautiful watercolor crayons that are still my go-to coloring tool.

I fussy cut the cat and positioned it on the concrete bench.  She was inviting her friend to join her.

The dog, which I also fussy cut, was not quite to scale, but I was hoping no one would notice.  Finding two animals to scale became a real challenge.

This was created in my large journal.  The focal element was an old calendar page.


Thank you so much for joining me today, and I hope you will join me at Art Journal Journey, too.

Wonderful page, I am sure the cat will enjoy being larger than the dog! Have a great day, Valerie

Instead of the dog, I want to sit there 😊. It's a beautiful garden!

What a wonderful garden for the friends and such a noble bench. I would like to have such a bench in my garden...lol!
I wouldn't have noticed that the cuties are different scaled if you hadn't told.
A perfect entry for Jo's theme my friend!Thank you Ms.Dr.E.!
Have a happy day!
Hugs,
Susi

I just thought it was a little dog. Having only ever owned shelter dogs, I know they sometimes look like one breed but with the wrong size. I think it looks like a beautiful garden, and it makes a great page! I'd sit on that bench and enjoy those blooms, and the critters too. Hope all is well with you. Hugs-Erika

That is a beautiful garden page , I would enjoy sitting there. I love the fussy cut cat and dog. The cat looks very much in charge of the garden seat and I honestly thought it was a small breed of dog, till I read all the post.

I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said! Very nice piece -- especially the cat. (At first I wondered if it was Bleubeard!)
