Two Cat Paintings Accepted into an Exhibit

  No time limit on when the art was done was listed, and the art did not have to be for sale, so I decided to enter my two most recent cat-in-winter-sun paintings, “Chocolate Bath” from 2017 and “Winter Afternoon Nap” from 2018. And both were accepted! Read more about this exhibit on The Creative […]

Color In or Out of the Lines 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 […]

12 Sketches of Cats (2014) Calendar

  Yes, that’s 2014 CALENDAR, but it’s the art inside you might be interested in. It was printed so that each image in the calendar is of framing quality. The calendar is outdated, but the 14 pieces of artwork will never go out of date. I found a dozen just sitting there and thought I’d […]

Commissioned Portrait: Fanny

Here’s a portrait I finished at the beginning of December. Fanny’s person received a portrait gift certificate for Mothers Day so she could get a portrait of her sweet Fanny, a little Bombay kitty.

Great […]

Featured Artwork: Mischief, a New Holiday Painting

Guess who’s getting into some mischief? It’s the little tag team, Mariposa and Hamlet! It always starts when one of them tags the other, and the chase begins, but I don’t think Hamlet looks like he wants to play right now. I vowed to paint this idea for the holidays this year, and, well, it’s […]

Sunbath, a Study of Sunlight Because of the Cat

A study of winter sunlight, because there’s a cat in it, one of my very first watercolor paintings. It’s a very simple scene: a black cat having a bath in front of a white painted kitchen cabinet with chrome handles, and a yellow and orange patterned carpet, but the play of light has fun with […]
