Annie's Eye Candy Art Saturday

Kitties, it has been a very colorful morning here!
I was surfing around this morning and my eyes were popping out. Here is what I have been feasting on:

Lookit these carved crayons I found on Andrew Sullivan's blog! You can see the artist, Pete Goldlust (nice name, Dude!), here.
I tried to buy a print but could not find one so I thought posting it on my blog against black would be a nice compromise. You know how fabulous bright colors look against (my) black (silky furs). Be sure to biggify for maximum eye popping experience!

And then I went to etsy to scroll through the Treasuries to see if Mosaic Lady was in any this morning and I found a Chartreuse and Black Treasury.

I found this and it sucked my breaths out...

So I went to the artist's store and found this print of her original. AND BOUGHT IT! Only $10! It is a 5x7 and I will make my own geegaw frame for it! Very exciting. (I took a long time convincing myself that I did not need to buy both. I wanted to!)

And then I went to my EBSQ etsy street team forum and was led to another treasury with this in it!

It is an 8x10 print of an original painting/collage called The Siamese Cat Fairy! I know a lot of kitties who might need this on their walls!
(You'd better hurry up because my Add To Cart paw is itching again. The only reason I resisted was because I wanted you to have first crack. YAO-LIN!)

I got so inspired and energized by all the great and colorful art that I ran outside and lodged myself in the very top of a very thick hemlock bush in my back yard. ML had to finally bribe me down with a bag of Temptations Greenies. I resisted for as long as I could, but kitties - GREENIES!!
I have lost my outside-the-enclosure privileges for the day.
It was sort of worth it.

(I can never spell priveledges priveleges right either. Maybe if I spent as much time studying words as I do shopping for art or abusing my outside priviledgeses.)

You have had a busy day Annie. We love the Siamese fairy. Now you'd better rest so you are ready for more tree climbing tomorrow.
