Have you ever seen a cat with a head growing out of it's body?  Well now you have!

I've been working on some other priorities lately and while that has all been going quite well, I really wanted to paint something.  I really don't have the time to spend painting right now as I have those other priorities but I just had to do it.  So yesterday afternoon I spent the time painting.

I've been wanting to play around with some new painting techniques that I've been thinking about lately and while I like how some of them worked, I'm not certain I'll do it all the same way again.  I guess that means I should move on to the next phase of experimentation.

This is painted on cotton duck and I pretty much just put it out there, directly onto the cloth, without much thinking, because, well, I was experimenting.  Well it wasn't until I was almost done that I really looked at it.  Hmmm, this cat has a head growing out of its body.  Who knew??!!  Well, needless to say, this piece will probably just get tossed aside as experimental and I'll just pretend that it isn't there.  What was I thinking?  Have you ever done anything silly like that?
