A Commissioned Portrait Certificate as a Gift

They may be prizewinners or bedraggled street survivors, but no matter—each is precious and fills our lives with joy. And our animal companions were meant to be shared; we can spend hours recounting memorable moments to fellow pet companions, sharing images on social networks, our phones overloaded with photos. Animals are fascinating and beautiful, and […]

Stars of Wonder, Serious and Silly

We don’t really celebrate any one tradition for the winter holidays, but we enjoy sharing traditions of all our friends. I had created the six-pointed star as part of an invitation I designed for a non-denominational holiday musical celebration a few years ago.

“Peace on Earth”, Take a Closer Look

Look a little closer at those markings…what do you see? For my holiday card in 1997, I was puzzling out yet another way to say “Peace on Earth”. I saw an illustration that had each hemisphere of a globe on either side of a Christmas tree ornament, and thought the idea of using the globe […]

I’ve used a day book for over 30 years and have all the arrivals and, sadly, departures of each of my cats along with my friends’ weddings, my nieces’ births and the births of their children, the day I first registered a business name, all that sort of stuff, conveniently included in one place. Great […]

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 […]

November Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Winter Sunbath

Even though this painting is nominally from winter I always choose warm colors and a feeling of home and warmth for my November desktop calendar, and what is warmer than an orange and white kitty dozing on a sun-warmed windowsill? I also like to feature new artwork, and I painted this in September during the […]

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, […]
