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 […]

My Cats in the Sun Feline Votive

These four images are four early paintings inspired by my cats enjoying a spot of sun with a nap or a bath. They date from the early to mid-90s when I was working hard to refine my skills with pastel, with color, with shape and even the strokes in my paintings. I felt I really […]

Hand-printed Valentines Inspired by Candy Hearts ~ The Creative Cat

“An Old Memory” for the Holidays

I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Some cat’s paw had taken down one of my cut paper snowflakes as he sat to look out the window. What a […]

Winter Cats Holiday and All-purpose Greeting Cards

I love snow light, inside or out, and with the bare trees and in winter I’m reminded of other snowy days and the cats who enjoyed them with me. This set joins four paintings of my cats done in winter light in a looser, Impressionist style, in a series I call “Winter Cats”. Each was […]
