Setting Up a Display

One of the things I like best about setting up a display is actually getting to see the things I’ve made. Really, all these things are packed away when they aren’t on display, so after I’ve made them and photographed them for my website, I pack them away to keep them clean and new-looking until […]

Peaches and Peonies, a Moment of Inspiration in June

While Peaches appears in dozens of sketches and hundreds of photos, this is the painting that captures her, pretty, petite, unassuming, a creature of feline habit in her adopted home at the age of 16 after she’d spent a lifetime with someone else, perfectly relaxed and assured that she belonged on the table having a […]

A Dozen Shades of Gray Anniversary, Art and Cats Transcend Language

June 5 is the fifth anniversary of creating this simple little monochromatic pastel sketch of Jelly Bean enjoying the view out the window with lots of different kinds of light on his fur. It’s still surprising to me that this has always been one of the most popular of all my daily sketches. At the […]

June Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kitty and Buster

“Cats looking out windows” has always been a favorite theme of mine. Add the delicacy of sheer ruffled curtains and I’m totally hooked. It’s the whole scene I love, the moment, even the silly one of just seeing butts and tails on the windowsill and shadowed silhouettes through the curtain, and it’s too cute when […]

Bella! Handprinted and Embellished Tote Bag

O.M.Geeeee! It’s Bella! On a bag with green button eyes just like her big round eyes! This new idea couldn’t wait any longer, Bella, in silhouette, at the bottom of a bag and with just big blue-green eyes that are two-hole buttons sewn on with black thread. I had intended to work it out for […]

One Happy Kitty, Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi is never so happy as when she’s out in the yard, as you can see by her “happy tail”. She’s so short that I can’t get a good photo of her face without flowers in the way, but perhaps that’s how she wants it. I keep a breakaway bell collar on her all the […]

Hearts and Cats Picture Frames

I purchase unfinished frames and add color and black cat silhouettes in acrylic paint. Your photo fits in the heart-shaped opening. Frames are 5.5 x 8.5 and are displayed using dowel pegs in the back of the frame. I add a hanging hook as well just in case you’d like to hang it on the […]

Colorful Handmade, Handpainted 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 […]

Felines and Flowers Vintage Cigar Box Keepsakes

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 […]
