A Dozen Shades of Gray Anniversary, Art and Cats Transcend Language

June 5 is the fifth anniversary of creating this simple little monochromatic pastel sketch of Jelly Bean enjoying the view out the window with lots of different kinds of light on his fur. It’s still surprising to me that this has always been one of the most popular of all my daily sketches. At the […]

Let the Sun Shine With Handpainted Trinket Dishes!

These little trinket dishes are 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually. When I first made polymer clay trinket dishes last year they were kind of lumpy until I worked out how to make the shape for “Curving Silhouette”, but […]

Bella on a Dishtowel!

When I created the Bella! Tote Bag I also had the idea of adding Bella to as many other products as I could, including dishtowels. I had some on hand I’d bought for just this purpose so I stenciled her graceful silhouette onto the flour sack cotton. After debating the issue I decided I liked […]

Bella! Handprinted and Embellished Tote Bag

O.M.Geeeee! It’s Bella! On a bag with green button eyes just like her big round eyes! This new idea couldn’t wait any longer, Bella, in silhouette, at the bottom of a bag and with just big blue-green eyes that are two-hole buttons sewn on with black thread. I had intended to work it out for […]

I purchase unfinished frames and add color and black cat silhouettes in acrylic paint. Your photo fits in the heart-shaped opening. Frames are 5.5 x 8.5 and are displayed using dowel pegs in the back of the frame. I add a hanging hook as well just in case you’d like to hang it on the […]

Mother’s Day Gifts and Ideas

Felines and flowers seem to be my specialty, and don’t they both work well for Mother’s Day? I offer their inspirations all the time, but Mother’s Day is one of those special days when a love of animals and an enjoyment of flowers are what is first on the list. I do have a lot […]

Keepsakes Made from Vintage Cardboard Cigar Boxes

A month ago I posted a photo of my fine felines sitting atop a box of something that was soon to be another project, as soon as they processed the contents by sleeping on them. They handed those contents over to me I set aside this past weekend to get it done. More cigar box […]

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 […]
