Daily Sketch Reprise: Emeraude, 2013

Yes, it’s Emeraude’s debut as a daily sketch! She loves to sit on the windowsill, but today it was something special, gentle dapples, lots of green, and that lovely curve of her head and her back and her tail. She has the same mahogany tones in her fur as Mimi

What would I do without the assistance, guidance and support—and inspiration—of my family of felines? We’ve been busy lately preparing for my upcoming exhibit as well as making several custom orders and packaging orders and shipping them out. So this week, instead of featuring a new product, I’m featuring the

Daily Sketch Reprise: On the Chair, 2013

Why I chose such an awkward angle I’ll never know, perhaps I just wanted a challenge, but I was totally taken by the simplicity of color and shape watching Mewsette settle down on the chair that was pushed under the table. There are other colors in the scene of course,

Daily Sketch: Mousie in My Shoe, What Am I To Do?

Mr. Sunshine was proud to come to my rescue and very pleased with himself that the entire time he kept close watch over the mousie, it never moved once. He doesn’t know I know he put the mousie in my shoe. That’s okay. . . . . . . .

Caturday Art: Sketchy

I took a sweet but very typical photo of Jelly Bean and Mewsette napping on my desk, one of a series I’d used, and did a little filtering and coloring to see what came up. I had actually wanted a totally different filter that looked like embossed paper, but too

Cat Food Ads, and A Career Inspired By a Rescued Cat, Photographer Walter Chandoha

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kitchen Business, 2013

Apparently, this is what they think the kitchen is for. Actually, we’ve been having fun in there now that the weather is cooler. We’ve destroyed a few boxes in the name of art and comfort, we’ve reorganized a few things and had a really great family time climbing in and

Daily Sketch: Stamped Kitty

After I finished up stamping part of my designs on a few notecards, I decided to have a little fun with the stamps. I won a basket of feline-themed stamps in a drawing several years ago and have a number of other nature-themed stamps as well, but I rarely use

Daily Sketch Reprise: Four Cats A-Bathing, 2013

I don’t know how I missed sharing this one yesterday! I still love it! This was another iteration of the amazing cat pile on the kitchen table from today (last year). I wanted a loose watercolor with sketchy pencil lines drawn into it to define the shapes a little more
