The People's Art Contest! February theme - Eggs!

Attention artists!  You might be interested in this art contest my friend Christine has started.  Here's a copy/paste of the brief description:


About This Contest

The People's Art Contest (PAC) is a completely democratic art contest. The monthly theme is chosen by the people, the prize amount and number of places paid depend on the number of people who enter, and the people are the judges


It's only $6 to enter, and you can enter any 2D work (painting or drawing, new or old, sold or available).  The participating artists are the people who vote.

For this month I'm entering a painting I did in 2009, I probably posted it here back then:

30/30 Challenge, Day Twenty Nine: Major Wuss

For painting #29 I decided to try another more realistic painting.   This is Buttercup/Kevin/Carl, now most commonly known as "Major Wuss."  He's our largest cat, and is the biggest wuss you'd ever want to see.  He has a perpetual look of alarm on his face and is always ready to run off in terror.  There are other things too but I don't feel like writing a story.

30/30 Challenge, Day Twenty Five: Sparky and the Squid

The Monster at the Window

Sparky heard something tapping at the window and was afraid it was a monster! Luckily(?) it was "only" the squid.

For this painting I decided to piggyback on one of DPW's (Daily Paintworks) challenges which featured a tuxedo cat looking out the window. I thought this was an excellent opportunity to bring Sparky into the challenge, with of course his nemesis, the squid.
