Fifth Anniversary of Two Cats After van Gogh

It’s the fifth anniversary of this piece of artwork. It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since I saw the exhibit “Van Gogh Up Close” and came home with a head full of ideas—and that evening sketched Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine on the landing for my first “Cats After van Gogh” sketch, a theme […]

Sophie Keeps an Eye on Things in Your Garden

Sophie could use any prop to dramatic effect, and the lace curtains were her favorite. Of course, you can’t see her.

What Do You Do With Old Cigar Boxes? Keepsake Boxes!

I love the chance to repurpose something that has even the slightest chance to be used again. My house is full of things I’ve saved, accepted from others, bought at yard sales and thrift shops and, um, repurposed from someone’s pile of stuff at the curb. Many of my picture frames come from these origins, […]
