August Newsletter from The Creative Cat

Hand-finished and embellished votives from repurposed jars I see things others might recycle or throw away as creative possibilities.

Jelly Bean watches out the upstairs window, streaming with winter morning sun. The white light glares and introduces all sorts of colors where they don’t normally appear, in Jelly Bean’s black fur, on the pine tabletop, in the lace curtain. . . . . . . . Where to find this artwork I have this […]

Fifteen Years

“Aurora Borealis”, a sketch I did for an illustration for a book about two polar bears who…I don’t remember the story line, but I do remember checking my voice mail at home while I was at work that last autumn I was at my day job, and listened to the message from the small press […]
