Commissioned Feline Portrait: Minnie

Almost 20 years ago some little girls holding a basket of kittens knocked on the door. They said their father was going to drown the kittens so they wanted to find them all homes! The woman who answered the door decided she could adopt one and chose the little calico. She had considered another kitten, […]

Colorful Little Crabapples on a November Day, “Unexpected Berries” Holiday Cards

Has someone decorated the bare trees for the holidays? Yes, Mother Nature! I took this photo on a similarly gray day and those colorful little apples looked as if they glowed and the bare branches had a wonderful silvery cast.

Tis Almost the Seasons for Feline-themed Holiday Cards

From handmade to printed I have a selection of feline-themed cards inspired by my evolving family of felines.

This […]

View from Beechwood, A LIttle Time Capsule

This painting may look like a recent Carnegie scene but it goes way back. I was just out of college and painted it long before I’d decided to devote  part of my career to art, and I marvel that I created this when I did, in 1983. We’ve had a very rainy October and very […]

As the Leaves Turn, Feline Silhouettes Looking Out the Door

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

Commissioned Portrait: Herbie ~ The Creative Cat

Herbie was a long-lived cat and we had a few decisions to make about his appearance, but overall I think we achieved an accurate portrait of not only him, but how his people felt about him at that time in their lives. Source: Commissioned Portrait: Herbie ~ The Creative Cat
