Keepsake Box, Impressionist Cats Cube

I’ve always been inspired by the Impressionist painters from sketches to paintings, and after working myself into a very realistic style to begin my cat painting career I loosened up by studying Monet, Renoir, Cassatt, Degas and van Gogh as well as the styles of others, visualizing my own inspirations in the light and color.

Peaches and Peonies, a Celebration of Spring Flowers and Sunlight, and a Certain Calico Cat

My old-fashioned pink peonies are fervently blooming this year, since we’ve lost a tree and they finally have enough light to really show off. Those aren’t the peonies in this painting, but any time I see peonies I think of Peaches and the moment I saw her bathing on the table in that sweet spring […]

Color Any Way You Want With the Creative Cat Coloring Book

In 2015 I’d been looking at and reviewing coloring books by other artists and decided I wanted to do a coloring book too. I didn’t really have the time to do the big one I envisioned of my larger portrait paintings and wanted to do something smaller and use art that is unique to one […]

Fifth Anniversary and A Third Printing of My “Feline Style Sampler”

I love to use selections from my portfolio of artwork to gather into a collection of some sort, finding a theme and then a likely way to present the collection, like my calendars.

We Were Listening to Granados, de Falla and Rodrigo

If you don’t know your Spanish classical guitar composers, now is your chance. I was listening to them while I painted this, but it could also be that Fromage was listening to them when I took the photo of her while visiting her family on Easter four years ago. I got to see my former […]

Sunbath, a Study of Sunlight Because of the Cat

A study of winter sunlight, because there’s a cat in it. It’s a very simple scene: a black cat having a bath in front of a white painted kitchen cabinet with chrome handles, and a yellow and orange patterned carpet, but the play of light has fun with the colors and objects. Brilliant light streams […]

Mewsette’s Blue Nap Note Cards, and What She and Giuseppe Thought of My Art

“Mewsette’s Blue Nap” is a loose watercolor I painted in indigo blue on watercolor paper. When I paint them I cover the paper in more or less her silhouette, leaving little gaps of white and adding heavier coverage where there are shadows. Then I work into the silhouette while wet for the mid range tones, […]

Colorful Kelly, a Little Surprise of Color

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk, I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]
