Friday the 13th

This wasn’t the post I originally had scheduled for today, but when I woke up this morning and saw these two big eyes staring at me — I’d left this on the table for my husband to see — I realized this black cat would be perfect for Friday the 13th.


Not that I’m superstitious or anything. I’m not. But I am a cat lover, and black cats have an almost magical beauty about them.

This cat is far from finished — it’s a scratchboard project I only began last night — and, in truth, it will be more white than black when completed. Yet seeing those eyes peering out of the darkness…well, I had to post this today.

Happy Friday the 13th!

  1. I love this cat. ❤
    IMHO I wouldn't finish it. There's some magic in this picture.

  2. Really nice start, I like this a lot. We had a black cat who recently passed and black animals are so hard to draw. I like this way, maybe I could bring him to life on a scratchboard. Nice one. 💜


  3. I love this too, just as it is. The missing parts make it mysterious, which is just right.

    • I think I’m going to keep this “unfinished”. I have more scratchboard, so I can always do another one. This one just does have a mysterious feeling about it that I really like. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it.
