Daily Sketch: Naps

We’ve been fortunate to have a temperate summer so far, but today it was just plain hot and humid. Jelly Bean was happy to have the entire top of the wardrobe at the top of the stairs by the open window all to himself. Some air circulates there and it’s

Daily Sketch: Kennedy, and a Benefit Auction

I just couldn’t pass up sketching Kennedy in this pose. He looks at me like this so often, and I have so many photos of him, that it was another image that stayed with me until I decided what medium I really wanted to use. I had wanted to use

Daily Sketch Reprise: Two Cats in a Basket, the Sketch, 2012

Another view of Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette sharing the feline organization and containment device. They spent so much time there I thought I’d make the most of it, especially when they stopped moving around and settled down for their intended nap, Mr. Sunshine resting his chin on Mewsette’s head. I

It is softly raining this Saturday morning, whispering in the maple tree outside the wide open windows, and I have been remembering Kelly, though it was Mimi sleeping on my hip and her children circling in to walk on me and purr this morning. This poem was inspired by Kelly,

Daily Sketch: Three Cats

The boys were hanging out in the kitchen, settling into some interesting arrangements. Any one of them would have made a fine line sketch, but I was picturing them as all in one line, as in a line on the paper, starting at the tip of one tail to the

Daily Sketch Reprise: Lounging on the Dishtowels, 2012

They were clean, but I didn’t fold them fast enough. Mr. Sunshine is very pleased with his ingenuity. He is also daring me to move him. I think I’d rather sketch what I see. . . . . . . . Pink and Green, 2013 Giuseppe in front and Mewsette

Featured Artwork: Two Yellow Cats, Turning a Daily Sketch Into a Product

“Even if it’s too hot to cuddle, I still love my sister.” That’s Jelly Bean and Mewsette enjoying a quiet moment looking out the basement door. Actually, Jelly Bean was trying to get Mewsette to give him a little bath on the head, knowing that if he leaned in at

Daily Sketch Reprise: Hot Afternoon, 2013

Mr. Sunshine looks out the window, and looks hot; today was quite warm. He’d been bathing, and I was trying to capture his silhouette in one pass with these layered horizontal strokes, not quite but interesting nonetheless. I will be exploring this because it gives me exercise in seeing the
