One Happy Kitty, Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi is never so happy as when she’s out in the yard, as you can see by her “happy tail”. She’s so short that I can’t get a good photo of her face without flowers in the way, but perhaps that’s how she wants it. I keep a breakaway bell collar on her all the […]

Upcoming Events in May

If you are local I’d love to see you at any of these events in the month of May. I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. I’m looking forward […]

Feline Sampler Boxes for 2017

My worktable watched over by Peaches.[/caption] Things always take a little longer than I think they will, like reorganizing my studio. This 8′ x 10′ room where I create my paintings, make all my stuff, frame all my art, and store all the materials to do all that and even store many of the finished […]

Colorful Kitties Print or Note Cards

This note card was designed from one of my daily sketches and just lends itself to a variety of themes—friendship, thank you, thinking of you, even an invitation to an event. This card is 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed on 100# acid-free uncoated cover stock, blank inside. They come with 70 lb. opaque acid-free envelopes […]

Hand-printed Valentine Cards Inspired by Valentine Candy Hearts

I usually print these little linocuts in earth tones or “tabby colors”, but I’ve been itching to use brights and pastels and all sorts of combinations with them. I decided they made cute valentines and that’s a great reason to create hand-printed cards in magenta on pink, violet, magenta and red card stock, embellished with […]

Mewsette is on the Afghan, and a Whole Lot of Other Things!

Mewsette nearly blends in with the afghan. Even though I sketched her there in February, the bright colors and warm feelings always seem to belong with the winter holidays. I’ll admit, this took a little longer than the usual 15 minutes maximum. I’d been holding off the sketches with this afghan just because I knew […]

Cookie’s Holiday Cheer, and the Photo Shoot That She Directed

You know that Cookie is usually the sweetest tortoiseshell kitty you’d ever want to meet, but she’s less than thrilled about modeling. Especially when she’s been…”decorated”. I’m here to tell you, though, that this whole thing was her idea! And I have the video to prove it. Cookie’s expression may have you thinking otherwise, but […]

“An Old Memory”, a Found Photo

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. Even though it was black and white film, it was processed in a one-hour development machine intended for color and the black […]

“Peace” on “Earth”, It’s All in the Spots

Look a little closer at those markings…what do you see? For my holiday card in 1997, I was puzzling out yet another way to say “Peace on Earth”. I saw an illustration that had each hemisphere of a globe on either side of a Christmas tree ornament, and thought the idea of using the globe […]

Stars of Wonder, Serious and Silly

We don’t really celebrate any one tradition for the winter holidays, but we enjoy sharing traditions of all our friends. I had created the six-pointed star as part of an invitation I designed for a non-denominational holiday musical celebration a few years ago. It could have been that, while I worked on that design on […]
