Daily Sketch: Laundry Day

Today was a busy day around the household with several weekends taken up with activities and busy weeks in between recently. Though I’d planned some yardwork when warmer weather was forecast for today, it turned out cold and rainy with dangerous roads in the morning, a great day to do

Daily Sketch Reprise: First Light

Mimi on the bathroom windowsill, watching the birds and the leaves. This is a little more than a sketch, but I wanted to pursue the idea I saw as I finished my shower. Mimi moved around as I quickly snapped a photo, grabbed a robe, dried my hands and got

Daily Sketch Reprise: Coming Back to Bed?

I hadn’t made the bed yet, perhaps Jelly Bean and Giuseppe thought I’d join them to be their favorite warm body pillow. They certainly looked inviting, though I ended up making the bed as they settled in for a serious afternoon nap. Finishing my sketch was better than a nap.

Daily Sketch Reprise: Saturday Morning

“Don’t act like you’re dead. We know dead things. We’re cats.” Yeah, this is pretty much what I saw when I woke up this morning. I may have slept a little later than usual, but not by much. I could only see two over the edge of the covers, Giuseppe’s

Daily Sketch Reprise: Blue-Brown Cats

Mewsette gave Jelly Bean a very slow and thorough bath, just right for a sketch for me because they weren’t moving too much. The blue is really more of a teal and I like that color—it’s in the cup of old pastel pencils I have at my desk so it’s

Commissioned Portrait: Steeler

This portrait is a very special tortoiseshell kitty named Steeler, who I actually had the chance to meet just one time. This portrait was a surprise gift to Steeler’s human, in memory of Steeler. Here is a little of the story of Steeler and her person. Though Steeler and her

Daily Sketch Reprise: Everyone’s On My Desk

And this is what it feels like. Mimi took off, so she’s not in here. Mewsette, in red, is bathing herself, Giuseppe, green, and Mr. Sunshine, orange, are bathing each other, and Jelly Bean, blue, dozed through most of it even when Sunshine gave him a little bath. Someone, whose

Daily Sketch: Back to Front

And that’s just how I visualized this “line drawing”—from the point of Bella’s tail that meets her back, out and back and around and over to her shoulder, then over to her face, from back to front. The little feline, I was so concerned I’d muss it up. When I’m

Daily Sketch: Loafing Line

Note first: I’m posting this early on November 10, though it is my November 9 sketch, because of the rule that cats may not be moved when sleeping, and my sketch book was out of reach when I wanted to scan the sketch. Could not move a happy Mr. Sunshine!

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Dishtowel Drawer

When three great minds get together to accomplish something, it should be somehow recorded, even if they had no idea what they wanted to accomplish. Mr. Sunshine steps on one edge of the drawer while Giuseppe keeps an eye on Bean, who is trying to get into it from the
