Cat - Age 12 (?)
I don’t know how old this card is; I should’ve written down the date when I made it. This is something everyone should remember – DON’T FORGET to write the date whenever you’re creating something special. I made this card for my mom on Valentine’s Day, (?) years ago. I might’ve been 12 years old. I dabbled with watercolor when I was a kid but like most kids, I preferred crayons and markers over watercolor, simply because they are easy to maneuver. But I really wanted to do something nice and watercolor always intrigued me. My curiosity led me to creating this – my first watercolor painting on bond paper!
You won’t notice until you see the card in person that I cut out the squares from the window and glued a piece of cellophane underneath using rubber cement so it would resemble a glass window. I wanted it to look as if the cat is peering outside the window.
If you look closely you can tell how bad my grammar was and still is (^_^). I don’t remember where I acquired this image, perhaps from one of my notebooks, which consisted of cute animals. I can’t believe my mom still has it and in great condition! She saved most of our letters and artwork from when we were kids — I’m glad she did.
