Kind of sweet and sentimental and actually the last sketch I did on my roundabout trip to the grocery store with pastels and camera. When I came home and parked my bike to unpack it, I untied the bunch of wildflowers I’d gathered and my sketching hat from the back of my bike and set […]

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 […]

Feline Sampler Boxes for 2017

My worktable watched over by Peaches.[/caption] Things always take a little longer than I think they will, like reorganizing my studio. This 8′ x 10′ room where I create my paintings, make all my stuff, frame all my art, and store all the materials to do all that and even store many of the finished […]
