My Cats in the Sun Feline Votive

These four images are four early paintings inspired by my cats enjoying a spot of sun with a nap or a bath. They date from the early to mid-90s when I was working hard to refine my skills with pastel, with color, with shape and even the strokes in my paintings. I felt I really […]

Warm Spots on the Coldest Days, Winter Sunbath

I’d always wanted to paint this photo of my orange boy, Allegro. I took the photo in 1993 or 1994 and painted it in 2017, and it was on my mind all that time. I wanted not so much to paint a portrait of Allegro as I wanted to capture that moment that was so […]

Commissioned Portrait: Pita ~ The Creative Cat

Sweet Pita, in all her photos she looked like a real character, rolling on her back, with bows on her head, but in every one is that sly expression that she knows she owns her human. Read about Pita: Commissioned Portrait: Pita ~ The Creative Cat

Daily Sketch Reprise: Studio Morning Shift, 2017 ~ The Creative Cat

Mimi, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were totally enchanting getting organized in the best cuddle pile on my drafting table by the window and the light was wonderful. I kept visualizing the three black shapes and tried to ignore them and stop visualizing a sketch. Good luck with that. I told myself that if they lined […]

“Bath” Decorative Dishes in Peach and Violet

When I made the “Trees of the Trail” coasters I really liked how the white washes turned out, both catching in the grooves impressed from each leaf and also lightly coating the surface, giving them a patina that added to the dimension. I’d wanted to impress a stamp again but this time without ink, using […]

Snow on Quince Blossoms, The Spring Kitten Print

My welcome of Spring in a matted and framed hand-tinted linoleum block print of a tiny white kitten nestled on a branch with pink spring blossoms and green leaf buds, though it actually references the blooms in the January thaw. I once had a pure white long-haired kitty with pea green eyes and a pink […]

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 […]

Add Warm Color With a Stained Glass Cats Votive

This votive features my pastel sketch “Stained Glass Cats” on a 3.25″ round glass votive. I etch the inside of the votive to better diffuse the light from the candle, then print the design on a commercial clear vinyl label and burnish it onto the votive. Using this art, which is tall and narrow, I […]

New Decorative Dish and Coaster Designs

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”. This is going to develop into something interesting! Starting with the idea of the original “Three Cats Looking” trinket dishes and coasters I’d wanted to […]
