Daily Sketch Reprise: Dreams of Three, 2013

Giuseppe, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were all very dreaming very deeply on my desk, curled and tucked neatly together. I saw swirls, and began to visualize how I would interpret those swirls. No heavy lines, I wanted the darkness of their faces, where the swirls began, fading in swirls and

Commissioned Portrait: Marley and Boo

These two very large black cats were really a challenge partly because black fur is a challenge, and even though they may look alike, black fur color is really all they have in common. Their two purr-sonalities were really quite different. Both felines were adopted from shelters, Boo first, a

Daily Sketch: Bella Birdwatching

Bella didn’t hold still quite long enough to get this much detail as she watched the birds at the feeder at the big north window, but she does give me plenty of opportunities to study her and gather information and details so I can choose the best posture! In black and white charcoal on gray toned paper with just a touch of pastel pencil for eye color.

Daily Sketch Reprise: Autumn Afternoon Bed

Mewsette has a quiet nap on my bed in the afternoon. The maple outside the window that casts green tones on my bed all summer now casts shades of yellow as the leaves begin to turn on a sunny autumn afternoon; the bedspread is actually solid white. Some other cats

Daily Sketch Reprise: Apron Strings

I placed the tall stool in the corner of the kitchen to be out of my way—it’s the one I use when I want to sit, if it doesn’t have too many cats on it already. All my aprons hang on a kitty-themed row of brass hooks, a row of

Daily Sketch: Curving Silhouette

Enjoying Mimi’s shape as she curled loosely on the cabinet in the warm kitchen on a cool afternoon, I envisioned this placement of her silhouette, and planned it as a scratchboard. I got to my studio to put it together and instead I did a paper cutout silhouette! Well, I’ve

Daily Sketch: Inscrutable Patterns

I’m calling it that because the original sketch from January 15, 2014 was called “Inscrutable”, below. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, making a colorful pattern using line art. When I first did this sketch I thought it would be a good candidate for a repetitive pattern, and
