Daily Sketch Reprise: Apron Strings

I placed the tall stool in the corner of the kitchen to be out of my way—it’s the one I use when I want to sit, if it doesn’t have too many cats on it already. All my aprons hang on a kitty-themed row of brass hooks, a row of

Daily Sketch Reprise: Looking Out the Window

Another one of my favorite ink drawings! Looking back on these sketches as I worked out this ink style last fall I have to say it was a medium I’d always wanted to master but didn’t feel I had enough control, even though I wanted the sketches to be loose

Daily Sketch: Inscrutable Patterns

I’m calling it that because the original sketch from January 15, 2014 was called “Inscrutable”, below. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, making a colorful pattern using line art. When I first did this sketch I thought it would be a good candidate for a repetitive pattern, and

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mimi Sitting

Mimi pauses in her bath. I love views of my cats from above. Perhaps that’s because most often that’s the angle from which I see them. I was actually waiting for Mimi to pause so that I could get a start on a sketch. I saw so many highlights and

Daily Sketch Reprise: Milling About

I enjoyed watching them milling about in the kitchen thinking dinner would be served at any minute. How to tell there were three? Actually, I had wanted more, but this was enough. From front to back, it’s Mimi, Mewsette and Giuseppe. My hands and feet were busy today and though

Daily Sketch: Three Color Kitties

A sketch from observing my cats in the kitchen. I’m not exactly sure why I visualized them in these colors, but what I was studying was their strong shapes as silhouettes with minor highlights within, and the subtle differences in each of their shades of black as represented in red,

Daily Sketch: Why is This Bag So Heavy?

I did pick up one of my larger shopping bags from the floor where I’d tossed it, and it didn’t all pick up! Then I saw the tail. Just one of the feline incidents that happen throughout the day. It was Giuseppe. . . . . . . . What

For Feral Cat Day: The TNR Story Print or Poster

“The TNR Story” 63 spayed and neutered cats in two paragraphs of cat shapes “and no one ever had any more kittens, and they all lived happily ever after.” THE END This art was inspired by working in post op at the May Homeless Cat Management Team TNR clinic. I’m

Featured Artwork: A Rosy Glow

I always celebrate my one truly feral rescue on National Feral Cat Day, October 16, not because she was my rescue, but because she taught me about feral cats before I really knew they were any different from other cats. Our 19 years together were one long lesson in patience

Daily Sketch Reprise: Rolling Around, 2013

Giuseppe was having a really good roll around on the floor, for no apparent reason except that it made him happy. I think we should all do that each day! This was another fun attempt to follow a moving target with my eyes while drawing with my hand and not
