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

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mimi Sitting

Mimi pauses in her bath. I love views of my cats from above. Perhaps that’s because most often that’s the angle from which I see them. I was actually waiting for Mimi to pause so that I could get a start on a sketch. I saw so many highlights and

Daily Photo Reprise: Studio Cats Working Hard

Bean takes advantage of all the color-balanced lights to make certain his little white thong is sparkling clean. I have different uses for my studio accommodations and all the lights I’ve installed, but on a cool rainy day I’m outnumbered in there. Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine permitted me a

Daily Sketch: Three Color Kitties

A sketch from observing my cats in the kitchen. I’m not exactly sure why I visualized them in these colors, but what I was studying was their strong shapes as silhouettes with minor highlights within, and the subtle differences in each of their shades of black as represented in red,

Daily Sketch: Why is This Bag So Heavy?

I did pick up one of my larger shopping bags from the floor where I’d tossed it, and it didn’t all pick up! Then I saw the tail. Just one of the feline incidents that happen throughout the day. It was Giuseppe. . . . . . . . What

“The TNR Story” 63 spayed and neutered cats in two paragraphs of cat shapes “and no one ever had any more kittens, and they all lived happily ever after.” THE END This art was inspired by working in post op at the May Homeless Cat Management Team TNR clinic. I’m

Featured Artwork: A Rosy Glow

I always celebrate my one truly feral rescue on National Feral Cat Day, October 16, not because she was my rescue, but because she taught me about feral cats before I really knew they were any different from other cats. Our 19 years together were one long lesson in patience

Vintage Photo: Little Fawn, Just Before, 1988

The little torbie kitten is my “yiddle” Fawn, chasing one of her rolled up balls of paper around my bedroom floor. That’s not so remarkable, that was Fawn’s favorite game, and kittens do that sort of thing all the time, but she’s still as cute as cute can be. And

“Kelly’s Morning Bath” Block Print on Handmade Papers

The Kelly’s Morning Bath duo was the first feline pictorial block print I designed all the way back in 1998, even before The Tortie Girls duo of block prints. I was literally inspired by Kelly’s daily morning bath in front of the big casement window, sketched it up and cut
