Time for Meow-loween Cards!

As an artist I turn to my surroundings for creative output, and what better to do with a family of five black cats during the festive Halloween season? I posted many of these photos on my blog, The Creative Cat, for my daily photos during 2010. Each of the cats depicted here is one of […]

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 […]
