Office Cat Watches You

Office cat says I need to sit down and get to work. And that work is providing a lap for her. My that Sienna is getting bold, and what a talented model too, providing us all with this unique photo! I walked in the door and, as always, glanced around the room to locate all […]

Marketplace: Ailurobibliophile Tote Bags on Sale ~ The Creative Cat

I’m down to five of my original Ailurobibliophile tote bags, one in each color. The images on these five are, well, less than perfect, not quite centered, not evenly printed, possibly a little off kilter, most of it apparent when you compare two side by side. So it’s your chance to get the design, slightly […]

Featured Artwork: Klepto Cat Book Cover No. 33, “The Secret Claws” ~ The Creative Cat

Daily Sketch Reprise: Colorful Kelly, 2012 ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]

March Nature Desktop Calendar: Sing Your Song

Greeting Cards Inspired by Spring and Summer Flowers

Yes, it’s time for a little dreaming about warm, sunny mornings in the garden among the flowers. These cards are for birthdays, friendship, sympathy, thank you, get well and more, blank inside, with matching envelope. And if you don’t send cards you can frame them or include them in a craft project which I sometimes […]

Featured Artwork: Warm Winter Sun ~ The Creative Cat

Namir is in that blissful feline “don’t bother me while I’m in my sun puddle” state, which is exactly what I wanted to capture. This painting is in oil pastel, and painted in 2000, my first successful oil pastel painting. One thing that marks this painting as being a part of my personal portfolio is […]
