March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Morning Shift Studio

March is a month of change so the choice of feline art for this month is all over the place. This is often the month I’ll choose a monochromatic image or nearly so or even black and white because all other months have color associations for me but March has many, I had a dozen […]

March Nature Desktop Calendar: “You’re My Best Frond”

“You’re My Best Frond” features two tiny fiddlehead ferns just emerged from the leaf litter along the Panhandle trail, caught at just the right angle. They’re rooted in the spot so they’re kind of stuck with each other. It’s a good thing they’re “such good fronds”! It still makes me laugh whenever I look at […]

February Feline Art and Desktop Calendar: “Darling Clementine”

To be perfectly honest, I featured this painting as a monthly desktop calendar in January 2013. I’ve been thinking a lot about Namir lately and the time when I painted this watercolor.

It’s inspired by Bella watching a snow flurry, and in honor of her new status as a member of our feline family here I’ve chosen “Snowy […]

January Featured Nature Art and Desktop Calendar: “I Chased a Sunset”

…and it disappeared over the edge and took a piece of my soul with it. Really, on the way home from a quick errand to a shopping center I encountered a stunning winter sunset just beginning to color and decided to take a detour through a local park to see it in progress. All I […]

December Featured Nature Art and Desktop Calendar: “Dusk in the Woods”

A fitting way to celebrate the winter holidays and send off the year, with a painting of the “blue hour”, “l‘heure bleue“, that time of transition. Though it is a painting of the woods in snow this painting is still connected to my felines and to my life in a very deep and special way, […]

November Feline Desktop Calendar Wallpaper, “Cat With Fruit”

My November desktop calendars always feature warm colors, earth tones, and the idea of giving thanks, feeling safe, warm, comfortable, well fed, with family or loved ones. I also try to vary them from one month to the next in style and medium. That narrows the field down pretty far in what I have on […]

March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Blending”

I have to confess, I have been waiting to use this painting as a daily calendar and the decision has been difficult because the colors and theme fit into any season. I always match the art to the seasonal light and color, but while this could indeed coordinate with any season it was my favorite […]
