Bella is usually pretty vigilant even when napping, but after a particularly strenuous morning of squirrel watching she was absolutely exhausted, curled herself on the top shelf of the cat tree, tucked everything in, wrapped her paw over her face and nothing interrupted her nap. I did an initial sketch,

Daily Sketch Reprise: Napping With Colors in Mind, 2014

Giuseppe must surely be absorbing some of the colors of the pens in my pen cup. I certainly thought the colors were inspiring next to Giuseppe’s black fur! Because he was sleeping I had the time to get more detail on his face than usual. . . . . .

Commissioned Portraits: A Quartet of Sketches

I had a wonderful little “family of pets” commission last year: a series of four small charcoal/pencil sketches of three long-haired black cats and one long-haired silver tabby. I rarely get the chance to create a simple sketch as a portrait and the idea of creating four was exciting. We

Garden Flags With Mimi

Here’s a little more Mimi art for your Sunday, and while she is feeling overall well it can’t hurt to bring her some more good feelings by sharing things she’s inspired, like these garden flags featuring art inspired by her just being herself. Mimi is very well represented among my

Daily Sketch Reprise: Spring Morning, 2014

What a coincidence—I did this sketch a year ago today, and guess who is the subject? I’ve been intending to share this sketch from last year all week just to share some artwork of Mimi and give her a little boost of creative attention and energy. This sketch was actually

Feline Photo Frames and More

Something entirely new! As I browse shops and online stores and see products with feline-themed art I can always picture my art on those things. I take the idea home and work it out in my studio. This month I’ve tried out a few wooden photo frames and wood panels
