I posted on Monday about my big weekend project with vintage cardboard cigar boxes as I had gotten the bulk of the work on them finished, anticipating the Mother’s Day Vendor and Craft Show this Saturday. I finished up all 13 and because readers expressed an interested I also managed to get them listed on […]

A Spring “Awakening”

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 […]

Blooming With Gift Bags

Look what Mimi and I found when we went out into the back yard this morning. Our forsythia was covered with gift bags!

Fifth Anniversary of Two Cats After van Gogh

It’s the fifth anniversary of this piece of artwork. It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since I saw the exhibit “Van Gogh Up Close” and came home with a head full of ideas—and that evening sketched Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine on the landing for my first “Cats After van Gogh” sketch, a theme […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

A Nice Pile of Clean Warm Socks

“Oh, thank you,” said Mr. Sunshine as he happily squinted and stepped into the pile of socks I was sorting and folding. “This is just…so nice…purrrrfect,” he said as he began purring loudly and kneading slowly and thoughtfully with both front paws. Cats and laundry just go together as if the laundry basket had a […]

Animal Sympathy Cards

Each time I send out a single or a set of sympathy cards I remember the cat pictured on the front, so glad to have shared my life with them for a while. I have the observation that every time I’ve lost a cat, I’ve gained something in my life. I’ve made decisions about my […]
