Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote Bags

In May I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas or twill bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to tell me, and I decided to try out a few other kitty […]

It’s Time for Meow-lo-ween!

Mimi is very proud of how her children have found a career as artist models. This sketch, “Spooked on Halloween”, from Halloween night in 2012 as I handed out my candy and all the knocking got to be a bit much for these four was destined to be a Halloween design. I designed the card […]

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 […]

“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 […]

#30paintingsin30days Day 3: Mimi in the Laundry Shade

NOTE: The original scan I posted wasn’t accurate, too contrasty and colors were not accurate, so I photographed it the next day and replaced the image. This was painted from a photo I took in August 2015. I’ve always wanted to do a simple little painting of it: my colorful dresses and skirts moving gently […]

Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Think all black cats look alike? Wow, have I got news for you! Living with a household of black cats for a decade and several black cats individually before that, I have so much black cat art and merchandise that I couldn’t decide what to feature for Black Cat Appreciation Day that would represent “black […]

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 […]
