I’ll Always Remember the Way You Looked at Me

Namir turns his gaze up to me, enchanting me with his “bedroom eyes” as we spent a morning in the garden. To visitors and to me, once he was sure he had you under his spell he turned on those famous bedroom eyes, narrowing them just enough so they looked mysteriously slanted and angling up […]

Pittsburgh’s Rivers in Morning Light

Lately I’ve been traveling into Pittsburgh and crossing a river in the morning, looking down in this direction. It’s often misty along the rivers, and coming toward Pittsburgh from the west the early morning sun lights the mist with different tones, on this particular day it was pink and all else looked a dusky blue.

After All, It’s Kitten Season

This pendant sold fast and I don’t have another on hand. I will look for this frame and cabochon and make another.

“Awakening” Cabochon in Classic Black and White

This small pendant is made with a print of my block print “Awakening” inside an antique silver metal frame with a decorative edge and a 3/4″ convex glass cabochon cover. The art is my block print “Awakening”. Only the very center of the design with the cats is included inside the cabochon because the decorative […]

June Nature Desktop Calendar: Sunset Cruise

I took the reference photo for this in 2005. It’s been waiting 12 years to be painted. It was indeed a sunset cruise…down Chartiers Creek on a perfect July evening. Not only the delicate light on the nearly still water and the clear sky gradating up to deep blue, but the curve of the hills […]

Keepsake Box, Impressionist Cats Cube

I’ve always been inspired by the Impressionist painters from sketches to paintings, and after working myself into a very realistic style to begin my cat painting career I loosened up by studying Monet, Renoir, Cassatt, Degas and van Gogh as well as the styles of others, visualizing my own inspirations in the light and color.
