A Sweet Summer Memory: Geraniums and Parsley

An artist in one of the groups I post in said she could feel the “absolute joy” in this painting. Yes, the exuberance of nature on a beautiful summer day, and my joy at even just a little bit of life and color to be inspired by in the year I didn’t have a garden. […]

Another September, Mimi in the Laundry Shade

I was hanging out these exact dresses and skirts in the bright sun this morning, with Mimi and Mewsette milling around then settling down in the shade because it was so hot, very much like the August morning I took the photo, or the September morning, September 4 to be exact, when I painted it.

August Feline Desktop Calendar: Smiling Ginger Kitty

When you are a “cat person”, it seems to begin with day one and work its way all through your life to the end, with cats intertwined with everything in between. And I’ve been looking at this batik I did in sixth grade and thinking how cool it would be to batik again… In 2011, […]

It’s That Time Again: Geraniums and Parsley

Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. In 2016, after my wild black cherry tree fell the year before and smashed […]

Colorful Kelly, Not the Tortie You Expect

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 […]

Headed for the Beach in the Evening

No, I’m not on vacation, I painted this in 2000. But it’s evening and I love that feeling of the breeze in the beach grasses, the sound of the waves breaking just over the dune, and the long and colorful shadows and warm sunlight. After the first time I visited the beach I discovered that […]

Pittsburgh’s Rivers in Morning Light

Lately I’ve been traveling into Pittsburgh and crossing a river in the morning, looking down in this direction. It’s often misty along the rivers, and coming toward Pittsburgh from the west the early morning sun lights the mist with different tones, on this particular day it was pink and all else looked a dusky blue.

Mimi in the Laundry Shade

Finally! This morning we could re-enact one of our favorite activities: hanging out the laundry on a warm, sunny morning. This painting was from a summer morning but even though it’s May it’s quite warm out there right now, and Mimi and I took some extra time to enjoy it. This was painted from a […]
