New Handmade Feline Gifts at the HCMT/Pittsburgh C.A.T. Spaghetti Dinner May 20

A few more things I’ve been wanting to make and couldn’t wait for the studio remake because the HCMT/Pittsburgh C.A.T. Spaghetti Dinner is this Sunday! Black Cat Collection Cabochon Pendants Like so many other items, I’ve been envisioning this style of cabochon pendants with my art and photos in them for quite a long time. […]

Color Any Way You Want With the Creative Cat Coloring Book

In 2015 I’d been looking at and reviewing coloring books by other artists and decided I wanted to do a coloring book too. I didn’t really have the time to do the big one I envisioned of my larger portrait paintings and wanted to do something smaller and use art that is unique to one […]

Let the Sun Shine With Hand-painted Trinket Dishes!

These little trinket dishes are 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually. When I first made polymer clay trinket dishes last year they were kind of lumpy until I worked out how to make the shape for “Curving Silhouette”, but […]

Fifth Anniversary and A Third Printing of My “Feline Style Sampler”

I love to use selections from my portfolio of artwork to gather into a collection of some sort, finding a theme and then a likely way to present the collection, like my calendars. In my “inspiration collection” I have calendars and art and photography books on all subjects that I enjoy simply pulling out to […]

We Were Listening to Granados, de Falla and Rodrigo

If you don’t know your Spanish classical guitar composers, now is your chance. I was listening to them while I painted this, but it could also be that Fromage was listening to them when I took the photo of her while visiting her family on Easter four years ago. I got to see my former […]

Mewsette’s Blue Nap Note Cards, and What She and Giuseppe Thought of My Art

“Mewsette’s Blue Nap” is a loose watercolor I painted in indigo blue on watercolor paper. When I paint them I cover the paper in more or less her silhouette, leaving little gaps of white and adding heavier coverage where there are shadows. Then I work into the silhouette while wet for the mid range tones, […]

Colorful Kelly, a Little Surprise of Color

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk, I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]

“Big Nap” Decorative Dishes

Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. “Big Nap” decorative dishes are based on one of my brush pen sketches, each one handmade, hand painted and unique, reflecting my influences from Japanese brush pen art, Theophile Steinlen, and Andy Warhol.

March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Chocolate Bath

It’s a little painting of a little black cat. I love to paint Mimi, I think because she is so self-aware and nearly all her poses are graceful and inspiring. Possibly it’s just because I love her so much. Black cats have many colors in their fur. The warm sun shows off Mimi’s mahogany highlights […]
