Daily Sketch: Napping With Colors in Mind

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: A Nap With a View, 2013

Giuseppe stretches his long body full length atop the wardrobe from which he can look all around the second floor, down the stairs, and out the second-floor window over the valley on a lovely, though slightly warm, spring afternoon. The light from the mirror partly reflected on him, creatign some

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: Just Doodlin’, an Interactive Effort

I have to admit this sketch would not have ended up like this if not for the watchful eye and intervening paw of Giuseppe. Sunshine sat on the cabinet in the kitchen thinking lofty thoughts as Mewsette washed her face, a nice enough sketch but Mr. Sunshine moved his head

Daily Sketch: Cozy Afternoon

The girls were sleeping on the bed on this disappointingly cold afternoon. The boys had been there earlier and torn up the place, burrowing under the bedspread and peeling it back, then leaving it, but Mewsette and Mimi found the wrinkles and folds very nice for sinking into. Green ivy

Daily Sketch: Milling

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: Tonal Nap, 2013

Giuseppe was napping, as usual, outside the door of my studio in a pool of sun on the landing. We’ve all grown accustomed to that piece of cardboard, they’ve been enjoying it as a scratching item and bed and big toy, and I’ve been enjoying it as an art element

Anniversary Sketch Reprise: Two Cats After van Gogh, and More

I looked at yesterday’s little sketch at my desk and decided that if I was to truly create homage to van Gogh, I needed to have a background for these two to exist within, especially that lovely cerulean blue and turquoise van Gogh often used, and lots of little sketch

Daily Sketch Reprise: Leaning, 2012

Mewsette sits up tall with her head under the work lamp, effectively blocking my light and a portion of my monitor. Giuseppe cuddles up there where it’s warm and uses Mewsette’s back as a pillow. I will give them the time it takes me to sketch them, but I am

Daily Sketch: Spring Morning

Such a lovely spring morning with sunlight so full of color. Mimi was feeling the weather and was everywhere—every windowsill, every spot of sun, challenging her children to wrestling matches they running off and wrestling with the roll of paper towels. But she allowed herself a few quiet moments to
