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

Featured Artwork: A Rosy Glow

Daily Sketch Reprise: Rolling Around, 2013

Daily Sketch Reprise: Just a Tiny Nap, 2013

Another cat in a box…and intentionally lured there by me. I’ve been working in my studio late into the night, or early into the morning as it were, and last night my supervisor was Mimi. Mimi was not interested in supervisory duties, however, she wanted love and play. I, on

A Great Rescue and Commissioned Portrait: “Christie”

“YOU ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, PRECIOUS GIRL…” to take a chance on a kitty known to have litterbox issues, well, that’s just love, something Christie likely hadn’t gotten before. She blossomed, and gave back as much as she got. . . . . . . . Would you choose to

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Surprise, 2012

A cat in a box is no surprise, but a box that turned out to be heavier than you thought that you open to find Mewsette happily napping in is a surprise, a very pleasant one. So, of course, I had to sketch her, because the moment I opened the

Daily Sketch: One L-o-o-o-ng Kitty

Guess who this is?! Bella and Smokie, respectively, are finally having some time on the first floor after thoroughly inspecting the second floor. I still won’t let them in the basement for fear I’ll never find them in the chaos down there, but they weathered their first journey to the
