Hoshis Nebula

“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: arts and cats.”
Kitty Cat 2 

Hoshi, the cat of two of my friends went over the rainbow bridge today. I painted this as a tribute.

this cat wouldn't happened to have been named after a certain linguist/communication's officer of the Enterprise NX-01 played by the actress Linda Park, would it? Also, my condolences go to your friend, I to have had many pets make that journey; mainly cats, but I've also had certain reptilian pets make the same journey as well, but it's not as bad as loosing a friend that snuggles up with you in your arms and purrs

One reason I ask is that its an interesting coincidence that my main character's backstory in Star Trek Online involves her being raised by her adoptive parents; one of which was the descendant of the aforementioned comm. officer/linguist and has her family name of Sato

Beautiful work. You are probably the only person other than myself still using PSP7. I'm no artist, but I use it for its easy image tweaking effects (correcting lighting in photographs and such). It's lightweight, it's fast, and it just works well.

Even if it is 20 years old now, Paint Shop Pro 7 is still a powerful tool. And it was the last version that doesnt try to copycat Photoshop. I also have Photoshop in my software arsenal, but Paint Shop will always be more intuitive and not as bloated as Photoshop.

Infinitely Beautiful

Is this supposed to look like a burning cat? Because I see a burning cat! Seems chill af about being on fire, but a burning cat all the same. :D

Its a space nebula in shape of a cat.

Is it an actual nebula? I've never heard of it and I'm interested in and usually fairly aware of actual astronomical places and events. So for now I'm assuming its a fictional nebula rather than proof that God has a cat watching over us. Especially as Googling the term turns up nothing but this very image. ;)

I saw that but I guess dopey me didn't make the connection. Sorry. I'm dense sometimes.

I can relate to your friends' loss though; my dog crossed the same bridge over 40 years ago after being my best friennd all through my adolescence and I still grieve for him now and then. Though I am agnostic Ilike to imagine he's waiting for me to catch up to him.
