Wishing I Was There

I didn’t get to see the beach for the first time until I was 31 years old. But it was like a reunion, I felt as if I’d known it all my life the first time I ran from the parking lot, across the pier and steps and out onto the sand on a beach […]

July Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Garden Sketch With Mimi

Even though I used this painting as featured artwork and desktop calendar in July 2014, I chose to feature it again this year for a special anniversary. This July is ten years since we lost Lucy, since I saw Mimi in my garden on that very day, nearly in this very spot, very pregnant with […]

June Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kitty and Buster

“Cats looking out windows” has always been a favorite theme of mine. Add the delicacy of sheer ruffled curtains and I’m totally hooked. It’s the whole scene I love, the moment, even the silly one of just seeing butts and tails on the windowsill and shadowed silhouettes through the curtain, and it’s too cute when […]

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. No, this is not one of my Five. Don’t I have enough black cats, I have to […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

February Feline Art and Desktop Calendar: “Darling Clementine”

To be perfectly honest, I featured this painting as a monthly desktop calendar in January 2013. I’ve been thinking a lot about Namir lately and the time when I painted this watercolor. I decided that if you saw and downloaded this desktop calendar four years ago and still remember it, you probably like it, and […]

January Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Snowy Morning”

From January 2015, one of my favorite sketches, and it also won both a CWA Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion for illustration in the 2015 Communications Contest. It’s inspired by Bella watching a snow flurry, and in honor of her new status as a member of our feline family here I’ve chosen “Snowy […]

Dreams of Three, Gently Peaceful

Giuseppe, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were all very dreaming very deeply on my desk, curled and tucked neatly together. I saw swirls, and began to visualize how I would interpret those swirls. No heavy lines, I wanted the darkness of their faces, where the swirls began, fading in swirls and marbles and fading lines to […]
