A Great Rescue and Commissioned Portrait: “Sooty”

SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T MATTER how much sentiment is attached to adopting a cat, how much people pay for a cat, or how beautiful or sweet it is, that cat is out the door when they no longer want it; sometimes, like Sooty, it is actually headed for its loving forever home and the people who […]

Stripes, Sleeping, a Sketch and Memory

This is a daily sketch from many years ago, at another time when I did daily sketches. Stanley settled on the pillow on the Recamier for his after-breakfast nap and I simply grabbed my pencil and sketchbook and swung around in my desk chair and got it down on paper. I’m so glad, because more […]

Winter Sunbath, Warm Spots on the Coldest Days

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

Winter Light at the Window

Jelly Bean watches out the upstairs window, streaming with winter morning sun. The white light glares and introduces all sorts of colors where they don’t normally appear, in Jelly Bean’s black fur, on the pine tabletop, in the lace curtain.

Great Rescues Day Book: Portraits of Cats, Rescue Stories, a Day Book and Feline Care Book

I’ve used a day book for over 30 years and have all the arrivals and, sadly, departures of each of my cats along with my friends’ weddings, my nieces’ births and the births of their children, the day I first registered a business name, all that sort of stuff, conveniently included in one place. Great […]

I Just Can’t Keep the Cat Out of the Picture

It was just meant to be the flowers and the cloth, but around my house it’s hard to keep the cat out of the picture. A customer stopped by to pick up her portrait and noticed this painting quietly hanging on my wall by the door and I realized I’ve never featured it! In fact, […]

September 2017 #30PaintingsIn30Days Review

Thirteen new paintings in one month is not bad, especially when they’re images I’ve been intending to paint either for only days, or for decades, and I really like each one of them. One thing I caught myself doing this time was putting my goal of a variety in medium and subject, size and style […]
