Daily Sketch Reprise: Their Faces in the Sun, 2013

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her,

Daily Sketch: Big Nap

Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. . . . . . . . What else was I sketching on this date? No Room for Mimi, 2014 Another iteration of “Perfect Fit” from earlier today,

Daily Sketch: Tucked In

Bella is usually pretty vigilant even when napping, but after a particularly strenuous morning of squirrel watching she was absolutely exhausted, curled herself on the top shelf of the cat tree, tucked everything in, wrapped her paw over her face and nothing interrupted her nap. I did an initial sketch,

Daily Sketch Reprise: Napping With Colors in Mind, 2014

Giuseppe must surely be absorbing some of the colors of the pens in my pen cup. I certainly thought the colors were inspiring next to Giuseppe’s black fur! Because he was sleeping I had the time to get more detail on his face than usual. . . . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: Milling, 2013

I watched them milling around my legs like koi in a pond, waiting for some action on a day when I was up and down and all over the house and they followed me, anticipating my next move. I pictured them, colorful, on a dark background, loose and active, a

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly in Warm Colors, 2012

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this sketch again. It is a sweet memory, and still one of my favorites, and one through which I still feel a deep bond with Kelly. Because I always hope she feels the warmth of love. I hadn’t set out to do quite this,

Daily Sketch Reprise: Spring Morning, 2014

What a coincidence—I did this sketch a year ago today, and guess who is the subject? I’ve been intending to share this sketch from last year all week just to share some artwork of Mimi and give her a little boost of creative attention and energy. This sketch was actually

April Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Spring”

Years ago a patron of a gallery in Carnegie where I hung my artwork asked me to paint four images for a very special frame she had. It had been designed and handmade in wood by her father-in-law, long and narrow, and had four openings, each 12″ high by 24″

Daily Sketch: Together

Mimi took my seat in the studio, then Bean settled on the seat with her. They were curled almost like yin and yang but not quite, since yin was so much smaller. But still I could see the flow of shapes between them. I like a nice single varied line,

Daily Sketch Reprise: Cat-eating Bag, 2014

That nasty bag is devouring my cats again, the same one that tried to swallow Mimi whole last week. Mr. Sunshine got out safely, but not before I sketched him. It was another case of pulling artwork out of the bag  to put away and leaving it standing in place
