Autumn Art and We Love Memoirs Day #caturdayart

Happy Caturday!

Well, it's cooler than last week but still quite warm. Hard to believe that it's autumn tomorrow. 

From now on you will see a lot more autumn-themed art because it's Mum's favourite season. 

Here are some autumn tones for you today. Both were created with LunaPic. We are not sponsored for mentioning this great editor, we just like to use it quite regularly for our blog art and so we wanted to share.

This is the Geometric and Landscape art filters together but Mum toned them down a bit to create her own artwork.

This one is the Geometric art filter on its own.

Before we go, we heard it's We Love Memoirs Day.

Mum enjoys reading memoirs. She's also written one herself as regular readers of this blog may already know. It's not a new book as it was written some few years back. It's no best-seller but we thought we'd give it a mention. It's called The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me  No need to tell you what that's about, hey?

Mum has always been a sensitive soul and not very good with humans. She hasn't had much luck in human relationships and she's had a lot of depression and anxiety throughout her life. But her cats have always helped her cope and she truly believes we are her soulmates. It was published in 2013 and there is so much more to tell that she may well write another memoir one day. 

She's gone right off writing though so it might not be for some years yet. 

Do your humans like to read memoirs? If so, what are their favs? They don't have to be animal-related, although they are usually the best!

Fall is our favorite season too, and unfortunately it's going to be ridiculously hot next week!

I don't think I've read your book, I need to go check it out.

Gorgeous art! I always love the Landscape filter.

Love your pictures! I like memoirs too. Actually, my grandma loved them and got me interested in them. I always bought her memoir books and then started asking to borrow them when she was done!

Athena, we love you and your Mum. She reminds me so much of myself. The world is an ugly place and day-to-day, I really struggle to cope. And hurt animals?! Way beyond my coping ability. It's just nice to find someone that understands and it sounds like your Mum does!

Awesome art, Athena! My human helps famous humans write memoirs. One she did was Lemmy from Motorhead.

Lovely art. Lunapic is my favourite editor, and I often use Landscape to a certain degree. One of their new effects, Gaugain I think, gives an autumnal look too.

Your filters are spectacular. I have Photo Lab but not Lunapic.

Your photos are always lovely!

Athena this is one of the loveliest.

I do like mémoires but only people with whom I am familiar. Favorite authors are always a pleasure to read of..Or persons who made a mark in the world.

Beautiful art Athena. Memoir is my favorite genre and your Mum's was excellent. She and I are so much alike. Recently, I have gotten into Dani Shapiro , she has 5 memoirs focusing on different aspects of her life. Famous Father Girl by Jane Bernstein ( Leonard Bernstein's Daughter) was excellent too. Thanks for hosting. I hope you have a great day. XO

Those are so very pretty sweet Athena!

Gosh, I'm not sure if I've read any memoirs...but that seems weird, 'cause I read like crazy and always have! I'll have to take a look around to see what books I've got in storage.
You are beautiful, Athena!

We are SO happy fall is right around the corner! I enjoy memoirs too, especially "meowmoirs"!

Athena, we like both renditions of your art, but we like the one where Mom Marie added the Landscape effect the best. Mom does enjoy memoirs, as real life is much more interesting than fiction. She recently enjoyed reading Michelle Obama's book.XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
