Congratulations Charlene! #5952174

Charlene Taylor May 20, 2008

Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment!!
Murry, thank you for pointing that out to me. I have to admit they are similar but comparison wise it would be like comparing a Ford Fairlane to a Lincoln. Mary Ella’s is a spectacular picture that looks like a photograph and is so perfectly done. I guess I should go through all the past wins but I don’t I can barely keep up with what is going on today. I had seen a similar picture before but it was in a magazine and a long time ago. #5952262

Mary-Ella Bowles level-deluxe May 20, 2008

Congrats on your win, Charlene - creative minds must think alike! To make your piece seem less derivative and more in keeping with your titled concept, how about having the kitty looking at an illustrated timeline/poster of the evolution of cats?? I'm also wondering what magazine you saw a similar image in, as the idea when I created mine was completely my own. (Just curious...) #5953603
