The Unintended Gift: My first cat, and how cats became my muse

Now it’s time for my own rescue story, my first cat, and how I came to fill my life with cats after her. Yes, I really did get a kitten in a box under the Christmas tree when I was a child. The story is not glowingly happy and, in

Daily Sketch: Fun Things Bella Does With Her Tail

Bella has a long, thick, very expressive tail that she waves and curls and twirls as she walks around the room rubbing herself up against things and stretching. It’s hard to tell exactly what is happening, so I did my best to interpret it. . . . . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: Birdwatching, a Family Activity

This is Mr. Sunshine (kind of listening to me), Mimi (intently watching) and Mewsette (crouching to pounce) watching birds at the feeder outside the dining room window. They sleep in a heap, and they watch birds in a cluster, all pressed together, often with mama Mimi in the middle. This

Daily Sketch: Smokie in the Basket

Smokie is cute no matter what he does, and especially when his furs and feathers are draped over the edges of a basket. Kind of the epilogue of today’s basket adventure with Mr. Sunshine. . . . . . . . What other sketches did I post on or around

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mewsette in Sun

I still like this one, so much that I’ve had her up in my studio since this date last year! Mewsette lets the warm sun wash her back while she sits and simply looks lovely. I was in the mood for a more detailed pastel today, and decided to also

Daily Sketch: The Impossible Angle

Mewsette wanted to play and sat quietly but intently looking at me to get me to wave that waxed paper backing from double sided tape, and gave me quite the assignment: use three hands to hold the sketchpad with one hand, draw with another, and wave the toy with a

Daily Sketch Reprise: Reflecting on a Winter Morning

Well, it’s not quite winter but we did have a little flurry and the light is now that winter light that fills the windows when the trees are bare. Bean sat quietly on the wardrobe after his bath and the angle was perfect. He is not reflecting in the mirror,

Daily Sketch: Mewsette Did Not Give Up Her Basket

In fact, she slept in it all afternoon (a reference to today’s photo). The lighting is a little puzzling because my worklight shone down on her back but left her head in shadow. The only real distinguishing factor is her ear. I had to sort my orders into another basket.

Daily Sketch Reprise: Two Cats Playing

Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine playing with a ball in the tub, trying to keep minimal and catch only their actions, using the brush pen. Fun, just as much as their fun! Just the way the ink worked out, they still look like Siamese cats to me! . . . .
