Some things just make you happy, right? One of those things for me, is Charles Wysocki's cat prints. I have bought his calendars & cards countless times just because I love cats and his portrayal of them. My all-time favorite has to be "Remington the Horticulturist." It combines the gardener in me with the cat lover.
I knew I liked it from the minute I saw it. So many little details about so many things I love. I liked it even more when I actually took a few minutes to study it and read the labels on all the jars, bottles, cans, etc., and the titles on the books. It takes a creative mind to think up the likes of "Uncle Poppers Grasshopper Stopper," "Goofy Dust for Crows, Jays, Magpies, Ravens ~ Catnip for Birds." "Bye Bye Fly" cracks me up too. You wonder if Mr. Wysocki is a gardener himself but perhaps not. He's just as clever with "Ethel the Gourmet," "Max in the Adirondacks" etc., etc. Anyone else charmed by this artist? I haven't been able to throw my "Cat Tales" calendar from 2008 yet. Every time I get ready, I make the mistake of flipping thru it one last time and just can't do it!
