Daily Sketch Reprise: Their Faces in the Sun, 2013

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her,

Daily Sketch Reprises: Spring Window, 2013 and Resting, Spring Afternoon, 2012

Mimi quietly settled on the windowsill in the studio on a sunny late afternoon, when the sun is best. I worked a simple, kind of abstract version of her contentedly watching out the window, the calming blue and purple and green showing in her fur, the bright yellow and pale

Daily Sketch: Napping With Colors in Mind

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. . . . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: A Nap With a View, 2013

Giuseppe stretches his long body full length atop the wardrobe from which he can look all around the second floor, down the stairs, and out the second-floor window over the valley on a lovely, though slightly warm, spring afternoon. The light from the mirror partly reflected on him, creatign some

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly in Warm Colors, 2012

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this sketch again. It is a sweet memory, and still one of my favorites, and one through which I still feel a deep bond with Kelly. Because I always hope she feels the warmth of love. I hadn’t set out to do quite this,

Daily Sketch: Just Doodlin’, an Interactive Effort

I have to admit this sketch would not have ended up like this if not for the watchful eye and intervening paw of Giuseppe. Sunshine sat on the cabinet in the kitchen thinking lofty thoughts as Mewsette washed her face, a nice enough sketch but Mr. Sunshine moved his head

Featured Artwork: “Undercover Cat” Book Cover

Author Patricia Fry published her fourth novel in the mystery series “Klepto Cats”, this one titled Undercover Cat. I began visualizing immediately! Since Patricia and I have worked together on three other covers I have a feel for the type of cover illustration and design Patricia preferred, and as she

Daily Sketch: Cozy Afternoon

The girls were sleeping on the bed on this disappointingly cold afternoon. The boys had been there earlier and torn up the place, burrowing under the bedspread and peeling it back, then leaving it, but Mewsette and Mimi found the wrinkles and folds very nice for sinking into. Green ivy

Daily Sketch: Milling

I watched them milling around my legs like koi in a pond, waiting for some action on a day when I was up and down and all over the house and they followed me, anticipating my next move. I pictured them, colorful, on a dark background, loose and active, a
