#30paintingsin30days Day 17: Late Winter Sunbath

I’d always wanted to paint this photo of my orange boy, Allegro. I took the photo in 1993 or 1994, and it’s been on my mind all this time. I wanted not so much to paint a portrait of Allegro as I wanted to capture that moment that was so much Allegro in his quiet, […]

#30paintingsin30days Day 16: Illustration

It’s been a little difficult to keep up with posting daily paintings but I am actually working on some artwork each day, including commissions and gifts, which I can’t post right away, and ongoing portraits, which don’t get done in a day. But as the month goes on I can post some of those commissioned […]

“Awakening” in Warm Autumn Colors

When I created this 16″ round linoleum block print in 2004, I’d intended for it to be versatile. Beginning with my Tortie Girls block prints a few years previous I’d worked out the mechanics of printing on rice paper that could be hand-tinted to add color in various media, from dustings of pastel to watercolors […]

Taking Flight on a Summer Afternoon

Years ago I watched a documentary on the whooping crane, this huge, graceful white bird whose population had decreased to fewer than 20 birds from habitat loss and hunting by the early 1940s. Very early conservation efforts managed to save these birds from total extinction, though today there are still only around 600 birds including […]

Square Cards

I’ve always liked a square format for artwork and photos and often visualize with this shape in mind. Of course, square images lend themselves perfectly to square greeting cards. The unusual shape is exciting to give and receive.  Mail in square formats costs extra and you can avoid the extra charge by using a standard-size […]

Remembering a Special Rescue, and Make a Donation With Every Purchase

It’s hard to believe it’s three years since our foster Kennedy joined us as brother, and left us all too soon. He’d been reported having seizures in a driveway in Kennedy Township, hence his name, on a sunny 90+ degree day, June 14, 2014. He was rescued by Tarra and Margo, and because I’ve handled […]

One August afternoon a few years ago Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine cuddled together for a nap on the drafting table in my studio, pure black against the sunlit white surface. The clear silhouettes inspired me to pull out the package of scratchboard paper I’d recently purchased because when you have all these black cats a […]
