Greetings From Our Backyard Bunny

Whichever holiday you observe, we hope you have a blessed celebration with family and friends and lots of good food! This is one of our backyard bunnies from back in 2014. I’d been watching them since early morning in my yard and the neighbor’s, the grass bright green and the sun shining warm through their […]

Signs of Spring, Pear Trees on Main Street

A familiar scene will change almost imperceptibly over time, and sometimes also suddenly and irrevocably. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street seems more colorful than usual with big clouds of soft white pear trees all along the street. Even though I painted this in 2003, it carries the memories of Carnegie’s Main […]

Featured Artwork: Sleeping Beauty, a Turning Point ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch was the first time I looked at a scene, took in all the necessary details, visualized the finished work, and actually created what I had visualized on the paper, all because I loved my Sally and wanted to share that. Animals give us so much in everyday life, but my cats have given […]

Art in Place

One of the things I did today was to photograph urns and the business itself at Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation. The owner and I have become friends over the years, and we are also each others’ customers—I handle her website and public relations, and she is the person who receives my cats for cremation. She […]

Commissioned Portrait: Scarlett and Melanie ~ The Creative Cat

This portrait was in my first group of commissioned portraits, way, way back at my beginnings in 1992. Scarlett and Melanie were young gray tabby sisters, the only two children of a young couple who adored them completely. I love the poses we chose, and I added a bit of color with colored pencil: the […]

Original Painting Sold: Summer Sunset, Robinson Run

I’m thrilled that this painting is now in a home that will love it as much as I do. This family had purchased another original as well as a couple of portraits from me—and adopted one of my rescued cats, so we have a friendship as well. We also share a love of trails and […]

Daily Sketch Reprise: Colorful Kelly, 2012 ~ The Creative Cat

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 […]

Giuseppe Resting, Original Charcoal Sketch

Not all original works are big pastels. I have a number of smaller sketches in charcoal and pencil, and I often like to leave a bit of a sketch unfinished or rough just to contrast with the detailed areas. So Giuseppe rests all the time, why draw him now? Just because he looked so velvety […]
