Daily Sketch: Mimi Falling Asleep

Mimi begins to list a little and spread out as she relaxes from the upright symmetrical meatloaf position of observing me from the vantage point of my elbow. What would I do without her? . . . . . . . What else was I sketching on this date? .

Daily Sketch: Pinwheels, A Nap on the Quilt

Mewsette and Bean were completely relaxed on the purple and white pinwheel quilt in my bedroom for the afternoon. Lucky them. I liked their silhouettes, but I also liked it when Bean turned and looked at me. I initially visualized this in colored pencil, but then tended toward watercolor pencil

Daily Sketch Reprises: You’ll Have to Step Over Me and Two Blue Cats

Cats laying in doorways, an age-old problem. What to do? Draw them! There was originally another kitty with Mr. Sunshine but he left, and then the phone rang, so if it looks a little unfinished, it is, but I like the loose quality. . . . . . . .

A Great Rescue and Commissioned Portrait: A Portrait in Oranges

DO YOU KNOW your veterinarian’s pets? I do, and early in my career had the honor of painting portraits of her cats and her dogs, all rescues. Each had their story, and it was wonderful to know that my veterinarian felt the same abut rescuing animals as I did. This

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

The Artist’s Life: Painting Cats

I regularly post my pastel artwork on the group page for the Pastel Society of America. I love this group and derive so much inspiration from seeing new member art all day long, every day. When I first joined I posted only my landscapes and florals, but was thrilled to

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

Poem for Saturday: Pawprints and Raindrops

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
