Stripes, Sleeping, a Sketch and Memory

This is a daily sketch from many years ago, at another time when I did daily sketches. Stanley settled on the pillow on the Recamier for his after-breakfast nap and I simply grabbed my pencil and sketchbook and swung around in my desk chair and got it down on paper. I’m so glad, because more […]

Winter Sunbath, Warm Spots on the Coldest Days

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, […]

January Feline Desktop Calendar: Cool Morning Bath

Mimi twisted and turned in the diffuse morning light at the door, all those delicate shades reflecting warmer on the floor, cooler on her, but still all in greens and blues and a very pale yellow, the light swirling around her. I liked this sketch a lot a year ago when I painted it in […]

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 […]

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, […]
