I Just Can’t Keep the Cat Out of the Picture

It was just meant to be the flowers and the cloth, but around my house it’s hard to keep the cat out of the picture. A customer stopped by to pick up her portrait and noticed this painting quietly hanging on my wall by the door and I realized I’ve never featured it! In fact, […]

12 Sketches of Cats 2014 Calendar

Before we begin, let me note that this is a 2014 CALENDAR. Why am I trying to sell you a 2014 calendar? Because it was printed so that each image in the calendar is of framing quality. The calendar is outdated, but the 14 pieces of artwork will never go out of date, and if […]

Find Some Good Luck Black Cats on Friday the 13th

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Get Ready for the Season of Black Cats

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 […]

#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 […]
