November Nature Desktop Calendar: Sunset With Barn

When I shared this photo in January this year, around the time of year I’d taken the photo, many people saw their own thoughts and memories in the image, whether it was a family farm or a barn they knew, or farms they drove past or ones in memory. That’s one of the things I […]

November Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Winter Sunbath

Even though this painting is nominally from winter I always choose warm colors and a feeling of home and warmth for my November desktop calendar, and what is warmer than an orange and white kitty dozing on a sun-warmed windowsill? I also like to feature new artwork, and I painted this in September during the […]

October Feline Desktop Calendar: Out the Front Door

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: Allegheny River Reflections

I had had another autumn painting chosen for my October calendar, but was secretly hoping I’d paint one of the autumn views I had planned for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, and I did. This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk […]

September Nature Desktop Calendar: Autumn Rainbow

I’ve been waiting for this photo to come around so I could share it as my monthly desktop calendar. Since I alternate art and photos, September is the month for a photo, and though this is an October photo, September is the month we mark the coming of autumn and I’m looking forward to the […]

July Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Garden Sketch With Mimi

Even though I used this painting as featured artwork and desktop calendar in July 2014, I chose to feature it again this year for a special anniversary. This July is ten years since we lost Lucy, since I saw Mimi in my garden on that very day, nearly in this very spot, very pregnant with […]

June Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kitty and Buster

“Cats looking out windows” has always been a favorite theme of mine. Add the delicacy of sheer ruffled curtains and I’m totally hooked. It’s the whole scene I love, the moment, even the silly one of just seeing butts and tails on the windowsill and shadowed silhouettes through the curtain, and it’s too cute when […]

June Nature Desktop Calendar: A Bend in the Road

In early June, on a lovely sunny day just about noon, I was leaving a morning event and on errands traveling the back roads just for fun, knowing this narrow back road had some wonderful spots. Here is one of them, “A Bend in the Road”. We never know what’s around that bend in the […]

May Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kelly’s Morning Bath

You’re probably familiar with “The Roundest Eyes”, a block print inspired by Kelly. She also inspired another block print—the “Kelly’s Morning Bath” prints were the first feline pictorial block print I designed all the way back in 1998, even before The Tortie Girls duo of block prints in 2001. I’d featured “Kelly’s Morning Bath” just […]

May Nature Desktop Calendar: Birth Root, Red Trillium

My May Nature Desktop Calendar is a few days late—because I couldn’t decide which wildflower to feature in the photo! May is all about wildflowers for me, each day a new flower blooming, everywhere you look, even the dandelions, I love them all. It’s so hard to think of only choosing one, but after four […]
