Stripes on Stripe, photo

Cats

With all the feline artwork I have you can imagine I have a fair number of feline photos as well. You are right.

About the artwork

One of my favorite photos of Stanley from August 2006, it was his last summer with me, he was about 24 years old, needing a little supportive care but still enjoying his time outdoors with me and every moment of every day besides that.

Sunshine and fresh air is a perfect tonic for an old cat. We were keeping the chronic renal failure at bay with doses of subcutaneous fluids, enticing foods, and a morning visit to the back yard and a nap on the deck every day the weather permitted. Stanley forgot all about feeling a little queasy and tired as he pranced around the back yard from bush to tree to post, smelling the messages—downloading his “pee-mail” and uploading his reply, as I always called it. Back up on the deck, a little bath and quick nap in the sun, then inside to eat ravenously as if nothing was the matter.

I have decades of memories of Stanley; he came to me several years into adulthood and lived with me for 21 years, suffering from chronic urinary issues for which he had obviously been violently punished. A sweet, silly, friendly kitty underneath it all, it took years to wear down the aftereffects of Stanley’s early abuse. But he appears in many, many images, including my painting, “After Dinner Nap”, which inspired many commissioned portraits, but before that it inspired me to find a way to share my feline inspirations with the world. Thank you, Stanley.

This photo doesn’t show you much about Stanley, but for me it is a reminder of how my cats have inspired me at every moment since I’ve lived with them, training me to keep my eyes open and always be ready for that unique image, keeping my creative spirit alive and my creative intellect in top condition, in a way living two lives at once, to live the moment, and to record the moment.

I often called Stanley “Stripe” because he was a tabby, and in this photo the confluence of all those stripes was just breathtaking. Straight geometric stripes in the shadows from my deck rail coming in at an obtuse and unsettled angle, the deck boards themselves and the gaps between at a normal and comforting angle, and striped Stanley breaking all the straight lines as he curled in a perfect circle for a nap; I could never have posed this or composed this, but what a moment to remember. And if Stanley had not been there I probably would have noticed the shadows as I was working in the garden but not taken the photo, probably busy harvesting green beans or tomatoes, so I have him to thank for this moment.

SHIPPING AND CHARGES

Shipping is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.

FRAMED PRINTS

Print are framed with a white acid-free mat and a 1.25″ matte black solid wood frame. I do the framing in my studio.

GICLEE PRINTS

The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames.

I don’t keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I’ll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.

DIGITAL PRINTS

Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.

CANVAS PRINTS

Because the standard size canvas prints are not proportional to the original painting, canvas prints of this painting will have a portion cropped off of each side.

I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. On these prints the image wraps around the edges.

I sign all prints next to my original signature.

GREETING CARDS

Greeting cards are printed on 12 pt, stock, coated outside, uncoated inside, and come with a choice of envelopes.

  • Card is blank inside but can be customized with your message for an extra charge.
  • Feline Photo Cards assort with all other 5″ x 7″ greeting cards (except custom printed cards) for a quantity discount.
  • Individual cards are shipped by first class mail.
  • Sets of six and twelve are packed in a clear-top stationery box. Price includes shipping via Priority Mail.

The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

The eyes really have it! It’s the most extraordinary thing about black cats, the way their eyes just glow against their fur, no matter what color their eyes happen to be. And Bella has those round eyes in that round face, and if that wasn’t enough she was sitting with her tail curved just so. I did all I could to have her look directly up at me without standing up, and I got my wish. Though formerly feral, Bella is a very talented feline model!

I took this photo with my smartphone and originally filtered it with my phone and Instagram, but to ensure the print quality I refiltered it in Photoshop.

SQUARE CARD

I knew from the moment I took this photo that I’d offer it as a square card.

Sally Profile

Sally Profile, Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

Sally Profile

Sally Profile

This photo was taken with black and white film in 1984, just a year after I’d bought my Pentax K-1000 fully manual camera. Sally was an Angora-mix cat who was deaf. I’d taken her in from a friend who had a hard time handling a spirited and unpredictable deaf cat, and she did eventually calm down somewhat but was always a bit of a wild child. Sally’s deafness may have added to her mystique as a model since she was often so deeply focused on something without the distraction of sound that she could hold perfectly still and I could capture an immense amount of detail, even as a total amateur.

I still can’t believe I managed to take these photos after having my camera for only about a year. I laid on the floor watching the late afternoon sunlight fill Sally’s frothy fur, its texture and depth holding the light more than reflecting, and in the shadows showing the textures of her fur instead of just a shadow as if she was emitting light on her own. Kublai was black and I was just learning how to photograph him in different lights, without too much success, and Bootsie was gray and white and much easier, but Sally, I found, was the perfect model.

At the time I took these photos I had little understanding of what I was doing. That’s okay, we all begin somewhere. I continued on with this photo shoot, seeing the interesting difference in texture between her fur and that awful olive green sculptured carpet, much improved in contrasty black and white, and the unintended nearly solid black background. The prints have been missing for a while—I find them among a stack of reference photos, then I lose that folder, etc. —and now that I’ve scanned the negatives I have them all digitized.

But I also liked the effect of her face in shadow instead of in the light. I would never have thought of that at the time, I know, if she hadn’t posed herself like that. And this was still in her wild days so I don’t know if she was actively teaching me a lesson or if she was just being Sally. Probably a little of both.

Kelly in forget-me-nots

Kelly in Forget-me-nots, Feline Photo, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

Kelly in forget-me-nots

Kelly in forget-me-nots

Kelly had been stepping out into the back yard with me now and then, even asking at the door to go out. She’d never shown any interest in the 15 years she’d been with me until the spring we lost Cookie, and I couldn’t help but think she associated the outdoors, and the spring forget-me-nots, with Cookie, as I did. Kelly was now the lone senior cat, and she was very lonely without an older kitty to cuddle with and protect her; she was a little intimidated by the gregarious black cats.

This is a kind of an odd angle—I had my zoom lens as I’d been photographing details of forget-me-nots and buttercups together and the cranesbill geraniums and columbines with raindrops from last night’s storms. Kelly’s a little foreshortened, but it’s a good view of her face and those brilliant green eyes; even without the reflection of lush vegetation, Kelly’s eyes are like gems, though the reflected greenness is giving them an extra touch here. It’s hard to believe she was 19 that year because she was still active, lithe and graceful, and because she was the youngest for 11 years I still thought of her as the little one.

Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi is never so happy as when she’s out in the yard, as you can see by her “happy tail”. She’s so short that I can’t get a good photo of her face without flowers in the way, but perhaps that’s how she wants it.

I keep a breakaway bell collar on her all the time even in the house—I like the happy little sound and I can always keep track of her, and she seems to like it to since it means we’ll be going out in the yard again some time. When she hasn’t been outside often enough, she takes it off, usually when she’s in the room with me, and looks at me. Mimi knows how to make a statement.

When we go out, she wears that as well as another nylon collar to which I attach a long leash. She wasn’t too keen on this at first; after all, my yard was her hunting ground when she was raising babies outdoors and she looks at me as if I’m out of my mind—get real, human, I know this yard better than you. But she puts up with it and my silly human fears about her potentially disappearing forever. I may hold the end of the leash or stand on the end of it if my hands are occupied, or I may let it trail along behind her. In any case, we’re getting accustomed to this. Cookie, Stanley, Moses, Sally, Kublai never needed a leash, but Namir did at first, and after a while he understood and stayed with me and Cookie.

She does enjoy being a model, though.

Cool Mimi

“Remember to Dream” photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

Mimi reminds you that dreams do come true, so it’s advisable to remember to dream every day, no matter the circumstances, so the universe will know what dreams you want, and when they do come true, you’ll know what to do.

Mimi and I were outside on a cold and dark afternoon one November day. The rain began to fall, she was wet, her paws were wet and cold and she suddenly remembered the days before she came inside and was frightened she might not get back inside ever again. She ran for the basement door she had visited so often and I saw her trying to look inside but it was closed, she looked at me frightened and all she wanted was to be in the house, and she got in, as quickly as possible when I opened the door.

Mimi does not forget that she lived most of her life outdoors before she joined my household at about age four, and in that time gave birth to six litters of kittens, constantly looking for food and spending time in my garden hunting, and looking wistfully in the windows and doors at the happy kitties inside and wondering what it would be like to live in there, having little conversations with Cookie and Kelly and Namir through the basement door.

Then, one day, she was the one on the inside, and to her great surprise she remained inside. And so did her children. And she’s not having any more children. Her dream really did come true.

I took the photo above on a frosty January day, and the way she quickly peeked around the deck rail at me, just to make sure I was still there and she wasn’t outside all by herself, reassured that we were still together, I knew she was likely remembering a similar morning when she didn’t have a warm kitchen to return to. But she never stopped dreaming, and now she does have that warm kitchen, and a comfy lap too. And I never forgot that moment with Mimi.

And Mimi and I wish the same happy ending for all the kitties living out there on the streets—keep dreaming, there’s someone out there who loves you, and some day you’ll be together.

And from me, we humans have our dreams too, and while they may seem as impossible to achieve as a homeless cat finding a loving forever home for herself and her babies, just keep dreaming. It may not happen exactly as you plan, but it will happen. Please feel free to right-click and share the image!

Sophie Keeps an Eye on things

“Sophie Keeps an Eye on Things” prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

FRAMED PHOTO

I have one framed print right now, as shown below, a 5″ x 7″ print with double mat in an 8″ x 10″ frame.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Sophie was always in one of the windows when I left and when I returned, and she always managed to use the curtains to dramatic advantage. This is one of my fondest memories of her, nestled in the creamy lace with the spring-blooming forget-me-nots in the windowbox.

SHIPPING AND CHARGES

Shipping is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.

GICLEE PRINTS

The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames.

I don’t keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I’ll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.

DIGITAL PRINTS

Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.

CANVAS PRINTS

Because the standard size canvas prints are not proportional to the original painting, canvas prints of this painting will have a portion cropped off of each side.

I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. I set them up so the image runs from edge to edge, then the sides are black or white or sometimes I slip in a color that coordinates with the painting.

I sign all prints next to my original signature.

GREETING CARDS

Greeting cards are printed on 14 pt, stock, coated outside, uncoated inside, and come with a choice of envelopes.

 

“Toe Cleaning in Black and Green” prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

A kitty having a bath in the sink is not terribly noteworthy, but in 2009 I was still discovering the magic of black and green and the green reflection of the sink on Jelly Bean’s fur and especially his toe pads, was enchanting, and I also like this photo for its somewhat abstract quality.

Who knew that vintage mint green sink would photograph in such a rich tone, especially when filled with a black cat? From the time I installed the new bathroom, the black cats owned it and the contrast of their black fur with the mint green fixtures and white walls and floor has been stunning and created some of the most favorite photos in my cat collection.

The set includes two familiar images, but really focuses on one kitty—Jelly Bean! “Gosh, I’m Cute” pictures Jelly Bean admiring himself in the mirror long offered as a greeting card, and “Have a Drink With Family” shows the Fantastic Four all drinking from the sink faucet at the same time. The new designs are “Composition in Green and Black”, offered by request but one of my favorite atmospheric images of Jelly Bean dozing in the sun on the edge of the sink, and “Toe Cleaning in Green and Black”, the Bean once again in a close-up capture of activity with the mint green sink reflecting on Bean’s black fur and paws.

About the artwork

Jelly Bean enjoys being washed in spring sunlight as I enjoy how the pattern of the window muntins falls across the wall, the sink and him. What you can’t hear in this photo is Jelly Bean’s loud, vigorous purr as it echoes in the sink, truly an amazing percussive technique.

This card is one of four designs in the set “Compositions in Black and Green”. This very photo was the inspiration for this series of greeting cards, and the calendar of the same name, giving me a focus for the whole series of images. I loved the look of this image as soon as I saw Jelly Bean quietly resting on the edge of the sink, all its shades of green lit by the spring sunlight, Bean’s pleasantly rounded shape contrasting with geometric shadows of the window frame and muntins, and even before I photographed it the idea of a series of photos on this theme was born, including even the name. I already had a number of photos in the theme of black and green and knew I’d get more, and even to this day I am photographing more “compositions in black and green”.

About the artwork

Especially if you’re the Parched Puddies having your daily drink in the mint green sink and the drink is water!

It’s Giuseppe, Jelly Bean, Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette, who were fostered in the “old” bathroom, before it was remodeled, and everything leaked. They grew up assuming you could drink out of any faucet, and still, years later, gather in the bathroom sink in twos, threes and fours, asking for a drink. I feature this photo each year at St. Patrick’s Day, though neither they nor I are Irish.

About the artwork

Jelly Bean is about as cute as cute can be and he knows how to use it.

This photo has a popularity of its own—what are the chances I’d catch Bean at his toilette? In fact, the very old bathroom was being renovated after a disaster involving all those leaky things. The four black kittens had been fostered in that room and just presumed you were supposed to drink from leaky faucets because it was so fun. They were in there immediately as soon as it was safe, Jelly Bean sitting in a completely new vintage sink in a different spot, waiting for the salvaged faucet to drip. And admiring himself in my temporary mirror.

  • Feline Photo Cards assort with all other 5″ x 7″ greeting cards (except custom printed cards) for a quantity discount.
  • Individual cards are shipped by first class mail.
  • Sets of six and twelve are packed in a clear-top stationery box. Price includes shipping via Priority Mail.

About the artwork

“Of the Rain and Giuseppe, Searching” is one of a series of photos I took of Giuseppe looking out the window at the rain and have always thought they’d be able to convey a variety of messages as photo cards, each of which can be found in my Feline Photo Greeting Cards gallery, and also attractive photo prints, which you can also find in my Cat Photos and Black and White galleries.

I could hardly pass up the mood and the composition, chose six of all the photos I’d taken, decided they’d look best in black and white and set them up as a photo short story on The Creative Cat in Of the Rain and Giuseppe. Giuseppe often gazes out “the big north window” dreaming in eloquent and sometimes lyrical terms of his precious French-Canadian Mlle. Daisy Emerald Marguerite who lives up the hill in faraway Canada, and who in real life is kept safe and loved by a friend in Hamilton. She and I enjoy composing messages back and forth in very purple Victorian prose, I enjoy the exercises in writing in a different style and subject matter, and we all have a great laugh, except Giuseppe who is a little insecure.

“I Have Vanquished the Blue Fuzzy” photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

Mewsette emerges into the sun with the blue fuzzy she has chased around and around and around my room until finally she captured it and presents it to me.

I am honored.

Her triumphal stance is priceless.

Possibly one of my favorite photos EVER, this was Mewsette’s “debut” in 2010, and another of the photos that encouraged me to post daily photos of my cats—I first posted this on my daily photo blog, Today, instead of posting it here! But I remember, and revisiting the folder of photos I took that day, that I only had one chance to get this shot, and it was only by luck that it was a clear and well-exposed shot. With Mewsette’s playful activity she only held still for a few seconds, and with the contrast in the sunlight and darkness it could have been completely overexposed or totally blurry. Lucky me! Enjoy Mewsette!

Blue Pitcher With Black Cat

“Blue Pitcher With Black Cat” photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

I have to say, I do like it, Mr. Sunshine, subtle, almost abstract. I have some talented cats here. I do like the photos that show all the assets of my beautiful cats, but I also like the abstract shots that happen to have a cat in them in a very artful way.

I also had way more photos of the blue pitcher with black cats in them than without. I had my DSLR in my right hand and my left arm around Mr. Sunshine, Giuseppe and Mewsette on the cabinet, holding them against me as they struggled, and waving my right foot at Mimi and Bean on the floor to decoy them from jumping up. So I was standing on my left foot and doing the hokey pokey, and I don’t know why the photo is as clear as it is, or how I got the angle I wanted showing a bit of the table above it…

Sally Silhouette

Sally Silhouette, Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

This photo was taken with black and white film in 1984, just a year after I’d bought my Pentax K-1000 fully manual camera. Sally was an Angora-mix cat who was deaf. I’d taken her in from a friend who had a hard time handling a spirited and unpredictable deaf cat, and she did eventually calm down somewhat but was always a bit of a wild child. Sally’s deafness may have added to her mystique as a model since she was often so deeply focused on something without the distraction of sound that she could hold perfectly still and I could capture an immense amount of detail, even as a total amateur.

I still can’t believe I managed to take these photos after having my camera for only about a year. I laid on the floor watching the late afternoon sunlight fill Sally’s frothy fur, its texture and depth holding the light more than reflecting, and in the shadows showing the textures of her fur instead of just a shadow as if she was emitting light on her own. Kublai was black and I was just learning how to photograph him in different lights, without too much success, and Bootsie was gray and white and much easier, but Sally, I found, was the perfect model.

At the time I took these photos I had little understanding of what I was doing. That’s okay, we all begin somewhere. I continued on with this photo shoot, seeing the interesting difference in texture between her fur and that awful olive green sculptured carpet, much improved in contrasty black and white, and the unintended nearly solid black background. The prints have been missing for a while—I find them among a stack of reference photos, then I lose that folder, etc. —and now that I’ve scanned the negatives I have them all digitized.

But I also liked the effect of her face in shadow instead of in the light. I would never have thought of that at the time, I know, if she hadn’t posed herself like that. And this was still in her wild days so I don’t know if she was actively teaching me a lesson or if she was just being Sally. Probably a little of both.

SHIPPING AND CHARGES

Shipping is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.

GICLEE PRINTS

The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames.

I don’t keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I’ll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.

DIGITAL PRINTS

Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.

CANVAS PRINTS

Because the standard size canvas prints are not proportional to the original painting, canvas prints of this painting will have a portion cropped off of each side.

I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. I set them up so the image runs from edge to edge, then the sides are black or white or sometimes I slip in a color that coordinates with the painting.

I sign all prints next to my original signature.

GREETING CARDS

Greeting cards are printed on 12 pt, stock and come with a choice of envelopes.

  • Card is blank inside but can be customized with your message for an extra charge.
  • Feline Photo Cards assort with all other 5″ x 7″ greeting cards (except custom printed cards) for a quantity discount.
  • This design comes with a square 5″ x 5″ option. Remember that square cards have a 21-cent surcharge in addition to first-class postage. But they’re so cool.
  • Individual cards are shipped by first class mail.
  • Sets of six and twelve are packed in a clear-top stationery box. Price includes shipping via Priority Mail.

About the artwork

On a quiet afternoon the garden was full of excitement.

For several years before moving in with me, Mimi “belonged” to a neighbor who would not spay her and she had six litters of kittens*. She hunted for food for her kittens, and my yard was her territory. Now that she’s a pampered princess she still likes to indulge now and then, just to keep in shape, though she is on a leash when she is outdoors with me.

I let the corners of my yard grow over with grasses and native plants as part of my Backyard Wildlife Habitat, and the creatures who inhabit the wild areas help to control insect pests in my yard.

*Litter number 6 came here with Mimi and they all live with me, you see them in the black cat art and photos all over this site.

The Garden Bean, color

The Garden Bean, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

Moses absorbs the sun on her fur and from the bricks until it gets too hot, then she moves into the shade of the barrel of pole beans, her favorite shady spot.

(Framed photo of Mimi just a sample.)

The beans are growing, the geraniums are blooming, the sun is bright and hot, and I remember a certain sweet gray kitty who spent every available moment on the brick patio next to my garden, summer and winter, and each time I look at the florid overgrowth out there I remember how Moses enjoyed the little brick patio. Other kitties would come and go during the day as the heat and their interest waned, but Moses was serious about her outdoor time.

Her reign as a Garden Sprite lasted from very early in my years here, about 1992 until just before her death in February 2006. A physically limited formerly feral kitty, Moses never asked for much, but was passionate about what she felt she should have. Her hips and hind legs were wasted and her muscles weak the day I took her in in 1987, and while she gained more strength than I ever imagined she would in those legs she was never able to run or jump, instead climbing on the rare occasion she felt the need to be off the floor, and hopping like a bunny for a few steps when walking somewhat quickly wasn’t getting her there quickly enough. As she grew older those hind legs and hips began to develop arthritis, and while I tried many treatments for her from glucosamine and chondroiton capsules to herbals and homeopathics, she resisted having anything administered to her however gently, and the best I could do was add homeopathics to the household water bowls.

Instead, one day as I worked in the garden, she came to the basement screen door. Once Moses came indoors there was no turning back, and she didn’t even look outside, in part fearful of what was out there. But she’d been lying in the sun coming in the basement door and followed it across the floor as it moved…out the door. Well, what was a kitty to do? She looked at me hopefully with that lovely gray tabby face, and gave me one of her sweet, silent meows. I could deny her nothing, my eternally gentle and humble little bodhisattva, and under the spell of her soft green eyes I opened the screen door and let her walk outside. She stepped out the door, let me close it, and laid down on the sun-warmed concrete slab, which was where her sun had gotten to. Through the day, as I weeded and trimmed and transplanted and harvested, she moved along with the sun, sipping now and then from the water bowl I’d brought out.

And so began nearly 15 years of daily thermonuclear treatments for Moses. Summer and winter she had to have time on her bricks, or at least on the wooden deck, even if only 15 minutes. I never let her go out without me so her days during the week were abridged, but when I began working at home she was in her glory; at her advanced age the increased time in the sun, the activity and the sweet pleasure for her probably gave her more years than she otherwise would have had, and made her last years more comfortable for her. I closely watched her, especially as she grew deaf in her later teens, but she never even walked into the garden, staying on the bricks covering about 20′ x 20′, rolling herself lazily over from one side to the other so that she was evenly toasted, and watched with sleepy amusement as birds landed around her and little voles and field mice ran across her paws.

I have a series of similar photos of her in my boxes of prints from years gone by, and I’ve been sorting through them to find these wonderful vintage photos I’d nearly forgotten. I had scanned the print and because the colors were odd—the effects of bad printing and a little bit of aging—I adjusted the color here but there’s still too much red; an aftereffect of Fuji film, so I discovered in comparing prints on Fuji and Kodak. But I’m also now scanning the negatives and getting completely different results from other photos, so it wasn’t entirely the film. Once I find all the negatives and scan them, this will be one of the series of four I call “Moses’ Summer in the Garden” with photos from June, July, August and September. You’ll see these soon as notecards and other paper products and some housewares.

That particular set of photos is not in full color, but desaturated, in part so I could make the colors consistent across two decades, across film and digital, and even different film types and digital cameras, and the softly faded colors were just so…so Moses. Here is the desaturated version.

About the artwork

Oh my goodness! I think that needs to be her name. Every time I look at her that’s what I say because she’s so cute.

Ophelia is a formerly feral foster who came to me in September 2015. By July 2016 she was pretty relaxed, as you can see. But she is such a bundle of cuteness that she has to think her name is “Oh My Goodness”! I’ve also included the graphic I created to help promote her adoption. She does love that mirror.

Watching the World

“Watching the World, Photo” prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

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 spruce, maple and river birch in the front of our house. I call it the “tree house” as we watch the weather and light change and spend time with all the tree-dwellers in the neighborhood above the street. Giuseppe was watching Mr. Cardinal singing his spring song on this particular afternoon and I watched the light and images reflect on his eye and admiring his profile.

Three Seriously Cute Housepanthers in a Basket

“Three Seriously Cute Housepantherso” prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.

About the artwork

These three really have to stop this sort of thing. I have work to do and I can’t be distracted by such serious cuteness. Mimi, Sunshine, Jelly Bean.

Mimi looks miffed, possibly because of the snow (see below), Mr. Sunshine looks like he’s making a face by sticking out his tongue (he and Bean had been giving Mimi a big bath), and Bean just looks like he’s there and he’s cute and nothing more is needed.

This was one of the more popular photos I’ve ever posted on Instagram and Facebook. Guess that means I ought to offer it as a print! I’ll see if the quality level is high enough because I took it with my phone.

September Morning in the Garden

September Morning in the Garden, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

(Framed photo of Mimi just a sample.)

What’s not to love? A tangled happy garden, a sleepy happy cat, lots of color and detail and sunlight.

My garden kitty, Moses, enjoys her morning nap on the bricks in the shade of the beans, mid-morning in September. I’m fairly certain I took this in the late 90s, but it stands in for any sunny morning Moses and I enjoyed in the garden. Remembering Cookie and Namir this morning while Mimi and Mewsette and I were out hanging laundry (well, I was hanging laundry), I thought I’d bring out this photo. I think of all the cats who shared my garden, and the fact that Mimi and Moses were probably acquainted from Mimi visiting the garden and patio when the basement door was open, though they never lived in the house together.

SHIPPING AND CHARGES

Shipping is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.

FRAMED PRINTS

Print are framed with a white acid-free mat and a 1.25″ matte black solid wood frame. I do the framing in my studio.

GICLEE PRINTS

The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames.

I don’t keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I’ll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.

DIGITAL PRINTS

Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.

CANVAS PRINTS

Because the standard size canvas prints are not proportional to the original painting, canvas prints of this painting will have a portion cropped off of each side.

I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. On these prints the image wraps around the edges.

I sign all prints next to my original signature.

GREETING CARDS

Greeting cards are printed on 12 pt, stock, coated outside, uncoated inside, and come with a choice of envelopes.

  • Card is blank inside but can be customized with your message for an extra charge.
  • Feline Photo Cards assort with all other 5″ x 7″ greeting cards (except custom printed cards) for a quantity discount.

Late in the Year

Late in the Year, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

This is my little formerly feral kitty, Moses. It is “late in the year”, as the photo is titled from November 2005, at age 19 it was also late in her life, using a year as a metaphor.

“Portrait of a senior kitty”…this is a favorite of my black and white photos. Aside from a strict adherence to twice-daily mealtimes, her one and only absolute necessity was a sunbath, preferrably al fresco, every day to help soothe the arthritis that had built in her somewhat hobbled hind legs.

I took this photo during the last warm day in November, just three months before she died. Some viewers have told me they have a difficult time piecing the image together because her features are distorted by age, her eyes set deep, her cheekbones sunken, nose slightly flattened by dehydration and ear tips curved as the skin on those extremities begins to wither, but I knew every hair, every feature. And those who’ve loved a cat into this era of their life can see the details right away.

This image of Moses was so meaningful because others recognized their felines in in that I chose her as one of my animal sympathy cards. See the whole set.

Bella's Basket of Dreams

Bella’s Basket of Dreams, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

Bella's Basket of Dreams

Bella’s Basket of Dreams

Bella spends some time in the basket almost every day, and I can hardly pass up the opportunity to photograph her. How could I pass up such beauty? I’m fairly certain she knows the effect she has on me, judging by the purr-fect poses she finds.

I took this photo with my smartphone and originally filtered it with my phone and Instagram, but to ensure the print quality I refiltered it in Photoshop.

SHIPPING AND CHARGES

Shipping is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.

About the artwork

Surprise!

Surprise!

Basil must have thought the yellow basket was a gift for him because he owned it from the day it came into the house, which was the day I was running errands and saw it…atop someone’s trash pile. I sprayed it down and rinsed it in the basement and let it air dry, then brought it up to the magic basket spot, and Basil was immediately IN THE BASKET, looking totally cute, big, long, white whisker and all.

But especially his glowing amber eyes! We had some glowing sunny days and I hardly photographed anything but Basil and his amber eyes in the basket including the one I’d first seen of him with his round eyes looking over the edge of the basket.

Tortie Camouflage

Tortie Camouflage, Feline Photo prints are made in archival inks on Epson Silky Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas and available framed and unframed.

About the artwork

(Framed photo of Mimi just a sample.)

Tortoishell cats can be camouflaged against many backgrounds with all their irregular speckles and dots. This photo of Cookie taken in the spring of 2010 truly shows her ability to blend into her background as her orange and tan blend with last year’s leaves and her green eyes blend with the spring’s new growth. I could not love her more.
