February Nature Desktop Calendar: Winter Sunset, After Rothko

It’s actually the sunset reflected on the eastern horizon, but I guess it could be the western sky as well. It’s from memory, not from life or from a photo, but it’s something I visualized when I’d looked at the horizon at sunset out my back window, a clear cold cloudless sky and deep shadow […]

January Nature Desktop Calendar: This Shining Night

Sunset comes early and dusk and nightfall quickly follow near the winter solstice. Christmas is among the shortest days of the year, and on this particular year I headed west on the trail, hoping to capture a beautiful sunset as heavy clouds gathered, then parted, and snow squalls and flurries filled the air. The timing […]

November Nature Desktop Calendar: Squashes

ABOUT THE ART I had painted “Green Apples” earlier that year, and the woman who purchased it decided that she would like two paintings for the spot, identical in size, matting and framing and perhaps style. We discussed several subjects, but as the summer waned and she mentioned golds and earth tones, I knew it […]

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 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 […]
