“Big Nap” Decorative Dish for Autumn

How’s a nice round napping ginger kitty for autumn, napping on a bright blue bed like the clear blue skies of September? Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. “Big Nap” decorative dishes are based on one of my brush […]

“Awakening” in Warm Autumn Colors

Cool nights and pleasant sunny days make me think of autumn even though it’s still August. I looked at my framed version of this print and knew it was time to share this hand-tinted color combination. When I created this 16″ round linoleum block print in 2004, I’d intended for it to be versatile. Beginning […]

A Selection of New Feline Votives

I let my seed lights swag across the photo and it almost looks like there’s a crack in something, but it’s really just an artsy effect. The last batch I made in May have a few different designs and styles from the ones before and with smaller jars too, and all in summery colors. They […]

Daily Sketch Reprise: Here in the Shadows, 2013 ~ The Creative Cat

Jelly Bean in 2013, and Jelly Bean today, a shady corner next to an open window is a respite from midsummer heat, and sable house panthers tend to melt into the shadows. Somehow, this original is still available, one of my favorites for the fact it came out exactly as I visualized it, and I […]

Feline Vintage Cigar Box Keepsakes

I had another stash of vintage cigar boxes in reserve and decided it was time to make some new keepsakes from them. Because I was preparing for Hearts and Paws last weekend, the first group of keepsakes were all feline designs and those are the ones I feature here. I’m working on the flower designs […]

This time I worked out a few different designs and styles with smaller jars than last time, and all in summery colors. All are etched on the inside with the design adhered on the outside and also have embellishments painted on the outside too, but this time I tried out frosted clear labels instead of […]

Feeling Like a Flower Child?

Bella is just feeling pretty mellow yellow as she settles in her little world within her basket. Along with the blue seasonal bow on the handle there was one little yellow flower twined along the edge. I left it to see if she or anyone would take an interest. Bella is well aware of her […]
