As the Leaves Turn, Feline Silhouettes Looking Out the Door

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because they sense my own enjoyment of what I’m doing, and for frightened fosters not only can they sense that but […]

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 […]
