A man of many talents with a cat in a bag! Life is good! Love all of your art, but particularly the first piece with scripture, the hand lettering and pen drawing! Blessings!

She is precious and you captured her bag pose perfectly in your art page. My tortoise shell, Minnie, also loves bags. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #7
Thanks for visiting me already. Rolo is one gorgeous beauty. And of course, I really enjoyed the baby bunny tag and wrapping paper. Very clever. Happy WOYWW from #1.

I haven't had much time either Arnoldo, it's that time of year! I love your cat and the drawing you have made, such a sweetie! I hope you find more time for yourself soon., but I love all your offerings today. X
Ana K. said…
Hi Arnoldo! Long time I was here...so sorry I just don’t have enough hours in my day (I see you have the same problem :))! I scroll trough posts and I see I missed some fantastic arts and I still admire your drawings!!! Best wishes from Slovenia
Poor tortured cat!

Your cat is beautiful & gave me a real chuckle - what is it about a paper bag that is so fascinating? I love the furriness you capture in your drawing & the way you reflected the bag's colour in your background. It's a delight to see the seamlessness of your faith with the everyday - those two pages really evoke that. The little aby tag is a lovely accent for the wrapping & the origami tag is great fun with the way you accented the blue of paper with your stitching & that glorious ribbon.
Do take care of yourself midst the busyness.

You have been busy producing these little works of art Arnoldo. Especially love the sketches. Annette x

Jez said…
So good to see you back. It sounds as though you are having a hectic year. All your artwork is up to your usual high standard. I love the way you have drawn the cat's fur in such a realistic way, it looks so soft and warn. The last two made me smile, and it's such a good idea to paint a tag to match the wrapping paper.

Such beautiful pieces Arnoldo! Your lettering in the first piece is so creative (love the way you textured it and the wings! Rolo is too ardorable, and you made him so life like that I want to pet him.

Hi Arnoldo,

The journal page of your cat in the bag is wonderful! Even though you haven't had much creative time I see that you've still managed to do some fun, creative things (love the origami).

Love that you try so many forms of art - that origami tag is so wonderful - I love origami but rarely take the time to do it. The cat sketch is so fun - I always laugh when they hide in bags!!! Blessings to you my friend

Oh Rolo is precious! Love how he looks guilty for some reason, maybe why he's in hiding ~^..^~. The photo is nice too. Hope you find some precious time for your art . I post once a week for PPF , on occasion a couple more but with my sites and everyday life I find it hard to do more,I do what I can : )
