A selection of framed originals 25% off
Why spend extra money on an original when a print looks nice enough? Looking at the original artwork that was done by hand is very different from looking at a print. I’m careful with preparing my images for prints and they are faithful reproductions, but the original always has more depth and dimension, even though it’s a two-dimensional work. You get a piece of my inspiration when you get an original painting, one of the moments I stood on the landing and sketched Giuseppe and Jelly Bean on the bed, or when I watched the snow on the trail and tried to capture the feeling of a quiet, heavy snowfall.
Original art is a very special gift to give as well, and maybe someday they’ll even be considered an investment. All the paintings available are listed below.

My original art can be hard to find on this site, and sometimes that’s what people come here to look for. So once or twice a year I offer a discount on a selection of original artwork, be that seasonal or themed in some way.
This time it’s framed original artwork. I don’t always frame artwork right away because I don’t have a lot of wall space to hang it or even a lot of storage space where it can be kept from damage; keeping the artwork safe while I wait for a reason to frame it—an exhibit or a sale—is much easier and safer.
But I’ve been participating in art exhibits for the past couple of years, for the first time in almost a decade, and that’s always a good reason to frame artwork right away. Paintings are often purchased from the exhibits, and sometimes they come home and then go right back out to another exhibit so not as much worry about storage.
So I have much more framed artwork on hand and now, during the slower time of the year for exhibits, I think it’s a great opportunity to offer it with a discount.
All my feline block prints are included too.
And because I’ve been able to photograph nearly all the originals in their frames at these events I can add that to the galleries so you can see what the finished piece will look like, which I haven’t been able to do before.
I have a few last prints of Awakening and The Goddess and The Roundest Eyes from last year’s printing so I’ll need to print more before long. I like to clear last year’s prints before I start new ones.
I keep a few to use in other ways than framing, like decorative trays and mounting them on wood blocks. So the framed prints I have in stock are discounted.
I have a few extras of Kelly’s Morning Bath on some lovely handmade papers as well.
Purchasing and shipping artwork
As a subscriber to The Creative Cat Preview Newsletter you can take advantage of the 25% discount by using the code ORIGINALART25 through February 28, 2023. That discount is only good on the paintings on this page. That’s because they are framed and I have packaging on hand for shipping, so it’s really efficient all around.
Shipping, handling and taxes are included in the price. Shipping costs vary between $25 and $50 depending on the size of the painting. If you are local and want to pick up your purchase, please let me know and I’ll give you a discount code to subtract the shipping from the cost of the artwork, or I will refund it to you later.
