Close to Home Arnoldo L. Romero

Greetings!  I am thrilled to be a part of the "Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens" team of talented artists.  Thank you, Lynn Cohen!  This is not only my first post on the blog, but also the first art journal page I've done inspired by my tortoiseshell cat, Rolo.  I've taken several photographs of her during the past 7 months she's been in my family, but I hadn't ventured to draw her.  The page is based on a shot I took of her when she was hiding inside a Texas A&M University cloth bag.  She's an inside cat, so my family's home is her domain.  Well, that's what she likes to think.  I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Arnoldo huge Welcome! I am trying to tell you what a wonderful kitty drawing and journal page this is, as I poke out letters with my left, non dominate hand while our cat Henry V lays on my belly under my right arm! This is not easy! Henry just jumped down to go find a bag to crawl into! I am so happy you will be sharing your art with us here! Again, welcome!

    1. Thanks! Rolo is a joy, but she does have to compete with my 3 dogs for attention. However, she always manages to get her fair share. LOL!
