Featured Feline Artwork and April Desktop Calendar: Two Cats After van Gogh 10th Anniversary

  It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 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 and style that’s stayed with me for over […]

Featured Artwork and March Desktop Calendar: Tri-color Girls Settling Down for a Nap – The Creative Cat

I’m so excited to introduce a new painting, one I’ve been wanting to paint for 15 years, and I’m late in posting my featured artwork and calendar this month because I insisted on finishing it for this month. Well, goals are good, especially when they help you get a painting done! They may be well-camouflaged […]

Featured Artwork and February Desktop Calendar: Sally’s Profile – The Creative Cat

  “Sally’s Profile” is an ink drawing from 1987, drawn from a photo I took in 1984! But it never grows old to me. I also like to feature black and white artwork in January or February, and while there’s a lot of competition in black and white art, this year I decided I liked […]

Featured Feline Artwork and January Desktop Calendar: Winter Afternoon

  The inspiration for this sketch was that black cats are easily camouflaged on the old wool afghan, and it made me laugh. Look closely and you’ll see four cats in this sketch. Basil, Bella, Bean and Mewsette spent the entire long, quiet winter afternoon on the wool afghan my mother made in 1946. Register […]

Featured Artwork and December Desktop Calendar: Waiting on Christmas Night – The Creative Cat

Mewsette often sits in the window and waits for me, but years ago, when I had the candles in the window for the holidays, she was always the one who was waiting for me when I came home after vendor shows or holiday activities. I put together years of photos of her to create this […]

Featured Artwork and November Desktop Calendar: Best Friends

  That’s what I had to say in the early 90s when I painted this and also set up my portfolio album. This painting of “my first feral” Moses and Fawn from “my first litter” is one of my first paintings after I’d moved to this house and started building my portfolio toward offering commissioned […]

Featured Feline Artwork and October Desktop Calendar: Enter Three WITCHES

  I’ve gotten some pretty unique photos of my cats, and this one is one of the most unique. Gathering around the lamp is interesting enough, especially this little hurricane-style lamp. Then add a pumpkin because it was October, and it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. Register for an account on Portraits of Animals and get a […]

Featured Artwork and September Desktop Calendar: Stanley With Apple

I remembered this sketch of Stanley, not only with an apple, the universal symbol for “school”, but the background looks like one of those green chalkboards with chalk dust all over it! It’s time for Back to School! Register for an account on Portraits of Animals and get a free matted print of “Stanley With […]

August Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Three Warm Cats on a Cool Ground”

  I featured this artwork in August 2014, but I’ve found myself thinking of it lately and looking it up, so that I could just look at it and enjoy all the things I like about it. I decided I’d feature it again, seven years later. So “Three Warm Cats on a Cool Ground” is […]
