February Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Dusk ~ The Creative Cat

It’s really some of my smaller, quick sketches that are deceptively simple where I feel I both captured the moment and my technique was right on spot, and this is one. Working quickly from life with light blue on black there is no room for “error”—marks can often be integrated into a composition, but can’t […]

January Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Winter Cats

Cats are usually simply happy wherever they are because if they aren’t, they leave and find a place where they can be simply happy. Looking at Mr. Sunshine’s graceful curve and watching the fluid motion of his bath I decided only watercolor would do. He and Jelly Bean were so cozy on the table by […]

October Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Allegro Moderato”

Some paintings wait decades to be painted, and when they have their chance they press on until they are fully realized. This was one of those paintings, one that monopolized the last four days of my life. I am not complaining in the least. My orange boy Allegro came to me in 1986 and left […]

August Feline Desktop Calendar: Smiling Ginger Kitty

When you are a “cat person”, it seems to begin with day one and work its way all through your life to the end, with cats intertwined with everything in between. And I’ve been looking at this batik I did in sixth grade and thinking how cool it would be to batik again… In 2011, […]

April Feline Desktop Calendar: Holly on the Rocker

A LITTLE WHITE LIE is sometimes what it takes to save an animal from a bad situation. Well, that and a convenient cereal box, but it all works out for the better. . . . . . . . Holly’s dad was working on his apartment building in a small town 50 miles from his […]

March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Chocolate Bath

It’s a little painting of a little black cat. I love to paint Mimi, I think because she is so self-aware and nearly all her poses are graceful and inspiring. Possibly it’s just because I love her so much. Black cats have many colors in their fur. The warm sun shows off Mimi’s mahogany highlights […]

January Feline Desktop Calendar: Cool Morning Bath

Mimi twisted and turned in the diffuse morning light at the door, all those delicate shades reflecting warmer on the floor, cooler on her, but still all in greens and blues and a very pale yellow, the light swirling around her. I liked this sketch a lot when I painted it in 2013, and 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 […]
