New in Feline Artwork, Bandit Will Steal Your Heart

SOMETIMES WE DON’T realize until years later that a series of odd circumstances has an intention beyond our control; often this involves the entry of one of our most cherished animal companions into the sphere of our life, and our entry into theirs. ~~~ One of the Great Rescues families, Bandit is one of my […]

Commissioned Portrait: Henry, in Two Styles

I was commissioned to do a portrait of a beloved family and community cat for the holidays—twice. Often I’ll make prints of a portrait to share with family and friends of the original recipient, but in this case my commissioner wanted to give one portrait to Henry’s family, and also have one for herself. She […]

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 […]

Commissioned Portrait: Annie, the World’s Greatest Dog

When I painted Annie’s portrait I didn’t yet know that she was the world’s greatest dog, but I could tell she was sweet-tempered and good-humored, and she was very beautiful. Her commissioned portrait was a Christmas gift from wife to husband. I get a little choked up when my portraits are gifts, and as I […]

Tiffany and Rags, #30in30, Day 18

This is a little confusing for me because I’m skipping book number 20 in this series, and this is the cover for book number 21. I’m counting the cover painting I did as part of my “30 Paintings in 30 Days” painting, for day 18, so up we go with these two kitties and their […]

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 […]

Mewsette is on the Afghan, and a Whole Lot of Other Things!

Mewsette nearly blends in with the afghan. Even though I sketched her there in February, the bright colors and warm feelings always seem to belong with the winter holidays. I’ll admit, this took a little longer than the usual 15 minutes maximum. I’d been holding off the sketches with this afghan just because I knew […]
