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 […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

April Nature Desktop Calendar: Pear Trees on Main Street

Spring has come round again, and Carnegie’s Main Street is once again awash in white blossoms—a little earlier than usual this year. A freeze damaged many of the blossoms and the display may not be as vibrant as usual, but I have a painting for that. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street […]

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 […]
