Such a Very Pretty Kitty

This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my ink sketch “Kitty in Pink”, but I colored him in with black because I liked the silhouette—which may look familiar because he’s the same silhouette I used on my “Cats Are Like Potato Chips” sign. Click the image to learn more about […]

A Pantherish Cabochon

Giuseppe is a housepanther, but he does have a rather real pantherish profile.  This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my photo “Watching the World” . We all love my studio window, a big, old, battered metal-framed casement about 4′ x 4′ on the second floor looking out at the […]

Wildflowers and Butterflies of the Trail Cabochon Pendants

A few cabochon pendants featuring wildflowers and a butterfly from the Panhandle Trail—daisy, chicory, woodland sunflower, aster and a great spangled fritillary butterfly on milkweed. I made these pendants with the last batch just before my open house in July, knowing I also had my Panhandle Trail exhibit coming up, so they’re not really “hot […]

Favorite Photos for Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail

It was really the art that inspired me to have an exhibit of Panhandle Trail images during Rock the Quarry, but I have far more photos than paintings. I’ve used them as the basis for paintings, I’ve used them for graphic designs and websites totally unrelated to Panhandle, and I sell prints of them too. […]

Getting Ready for Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail

I’ve been enjoying my trip around the seasons while getting ready for my fifth annual Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail exhibit. I can hardly believe it’s next weekend already! I’m framing new artwork and making sure the older pieces are clean and neat, making prints of art and photos and packaging or framing them, plus […]

Birds and Butterflies and Wildflowers Cabochon Pendants, and a Discount Through August

All are made from my photographs of butterflies, garden flowers, wildflowers and a hummingbird too—they were popular enough that several of then sold already at my open house this weekend but that just means I’ll be […]

Open House and a New Shop Display

I had a little open house this past weekend, and established my living room/office as a little shop for local people to visit any time I’m here. It’s an event, and a change, I’ve been trying to find the time to set up and I’m happy to have it now. Christmas in July! Studio Sale […]

Cat Cabochon in Classic Black and White

This cabochon design is actually an illustration, a little ink drawing of mine from decades ago, called “Sally’s Profile”. She was my lovely long-haired deaf white cat who is also the subject of this month’s desktop calendar. I drew this from a black and white photo I’d taken of her, loving the high contrast of […]
