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 […]

Three Warm Cats on a Cool Ground Makes an Interesting Composition

Where do these visual inspirations come from? Giuseppe, Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette were enjoying the view as I rode my exercise bicycle, having plenty of time to watch them and the light and visualize this composition. I wanted lots of mixed colors, but muted, indefinite edges, but the sketch in black on top of all […]

Paths I Have Walked, Really Kind of Literally

Paths I Have Walked, Really Kind of Literally. A decade ago I called my first poetry ready “Paths I Have Walked” because so much of the inspiration for my poetry, other writing art and photography came from finding paths all over the hills and valleys where I grew up, and also following some other paths out of this place.
