Daily Sketch Reprise: Lazy Saturday Afternoon

From 2012, and still a favorite, especially on a lazy Saturday afternoon like today! Well, for the kids at least. Though I painted this in June, this painting was the featured artwork and desktop calendar for August in 2012 and it is so perfect for August. . . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: Exhibit at the Feline Museum, 2014

Anyone who has visited here recently knows exactly what I mean. Stacks of boxes and bins, and a cat sleeping on the top of each one. I walked in this afternoon, and while there are only three stacks and more than one cat on the top of each one, this

Daily Sketch Reprise: Boys, 2014

My studio supervisors for this morning. I sketched this very early this morning as I was working at my drafting table and the computer in my studio. Those windows face west and much of the light is absorbed into the spruce and maple trees with just a little reflected down

August Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Three Blue Cats”

For some reason, this sketch has always been a favorite, and it’s actually been in the running as a monthly desktop calendar for a while. Finally, it’s time! The bright colors feel right with August sun and sky, the loose lines a feeling of freedom. For me, it is a

Daily Sketch Reprise: Party’s Over, 2012

We had so much color in the birthday party, but no one held still long enough for a sketch until Mewsette decided to settle down for a nap afterward. What a sweet girl, always a good model! We had our party on Sunday, with or without hats and beads, but

Daily Sketch Reprise: Pinwheels, A Nap on the Quilt, 2014

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 Reprise: Summer-colored Kitty

I think I was overtaken by the Oaxacan feline carvings and all their colors—and also their stylized shapes. Sketching the black kitties is always a good exercise, but I truly appreciate their solid black when I’m working with simply form and non-representational color. I watched Giuseppe bathe on the stool

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. . . . . . . .

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 Reprise: Looking Closely, 2012

I have no idea what Giuseppe was studying so intently. He would bathe a while, then stop and stare down in front of his paws, ears and whiskers at attention. Honestly, I think it was a mark on the piece of paper he’s sitting on, a fax that had some
