You, my dear are a riot. What will you think of next? I really like pose a, b & c. However, If I HAD to choose, I would pick pose C

Denise H said...

Pose B - they are all cute, but as a painting I think B would make the nicest.

Melissa Hansen said...

pose B of your lovely cat. and by the way-our own Willamina library cat was featured in Cat Fancy Nov 08 and the article won a big prize earlier this year. How about doing something with Agie who has been at the library over 11 years?

ButtonWillow is a natural! It's a tough decision, but I think B has such a great expression. I love all of your work. eve30@hotmail.com

I like the poses testing the fireplace best

but if must choose between A,B,C:
B

Katy said...

Pose B--without a doubt. Although she looks 'professional' in all poses but we definatly like B.

Periwinkle Paisley said...

I'm partial to pose B. Very cute!

Susan M. Bell said...

I'm partial to pose C. Don't know why. Just like it a lot.

Taffy said...

Pose C because I like the birdies in the picture too.

Dawn Herron said...

I like pose C

Jo said...

Pose B - what gorgeous pictures.

Skeezix the Cat said...

Poze B fur me! Can't wate to see the final produkt!

What's up Duck? said...

I'm between A and B. In C she just looks too angry. Plus it is such a straightforward shot compared to the other two.
I love how she is looking away all aloof in pose A but I guess the smelling of the leaves wins me over.

malena said...

I am for B. She has that curious cat expression on her lovely face ;)

loralai said...

I like B Susan! Think you could do alot with that pose - happy day!

Gretiesmom said...

All are adorable, but my favorite pose is "B". I'm looking forward to seeing it develop!

TennesseeKats said...

Buttonwillow's personailty really shines in pose B -- that's the one that gets my vote!

Deb said...

Pose B for me. Deb =^..^=x6

anne said...

Lisa Hjulberg said...

RusticStudio said...

Pose B. She looks so crazy, but oh so fun.

Su Bee said...

Hi! I love Pose B! All the photos are adorable, but I like action and Pose B gets my vote for that reason. Beautiful cat, by the way!

Trina said...

I love pose B. It remeinds me of my cats. I love the look on the cats face!

salemslot9 said...

pose B

Luanne said...

I vote for Pose B!

Valerie Burnette said...

Pose A is a more "still life" type pose that has that pensive quality to engender introspection. Our tuxedo cats often look as if they are merely observing the world around without being a part of it.

-Anne- said...

I am a fan of pose A. And Pico, who is an expert on poses himself also finds that one most interesting. Do we get to give two votes? =)

plaka said...

Pose C. I like the fact that ButtonWillow has rearragned the tulips so that the one trending to the right balances her pose to the left. Very artistic.

Alison said...

Pose C - wonderful composition! And you can see Buttonwillow's face! Actually the first photo - where she is an artist's asst if the best, but....
