Daily Sketch Reprise: First Light

Mimi on the bathroom windowsill, watching the birds and the leaves. This is a little more than a sketch, but I wanted to pursue the idea I saw as I finished my shower. Mimi moved around as I quickly snapped a photo, grabbed a robe, dried my hands and got

Senior Pet Adoption Donation Program

I pledge to support senior adoption programs at shelters by making a donation from the sale of every full-size or half-size gicleé print of “Peaches and Peonies.” I’ve told many stories about Peaches on this site so you know her story of losing her person and entering my life when

The Artist’s Life: Something Familiar About That Black Cat on the Stool…

In 2011 I took a series of photos of my cats in my studio while I was working called Sunday in the studio. One of the photos later reminded me of yet another artifact from my collection of feline-themed things from my childhood, one of the things that became an

Daily Sketch Reprise: Coming Back to Bed?

I hadn’t made the bed yet, perhaps Jelly Bean and Giuseppe thought I’d join them to be their favorite warm body pillow. They certainly looked inviting, though I ended up making the bed as they settled in for a serious afternoon nap. Finishing my sketch was better than a nap.

Daily Sketch Reprise: Saturday Morning

“Don’t act like you’re dead. We know dead things. We’re cats.” Yeah, this is pretty much what I saw when I woke up this morning. I may have slept a little later than usual, but not by much. I could only see two over the edge of the covers, Giuseppe’s

“Star of Wonder” Garden Flag

You’ve seen me use daily sketches for new designs for merchandise, but I’ve also used daily photos. The back story to this one is that I used Mr. Sunshine’s silhouette to create the feline silhouette in this design from a photo of Mr. Sunshine looking up at a moth in

Daily Sketch Reprise: Blue-Brown Cats

Mewsette gave Jelly Bean a very slow and thorough bath, just right for a sketch for me because they weren’t moving too much. The blue is really more of a teal and I like that color—it’s in the cup of old pastel pencils I have at my desk so it’s

Commissioned Portrait: Steeler

This portrait is a very special tortoiseshell kitty named Steeler, who I actually had the chance to meet just one time. This portrait was a surprise gift to Steeler’s human, in memory of Steeler. Here is a little of the story of Steeler and her person. Though Steeler and her

Daily Sketch: Back to Front

And that’s just how I visualized this “line drawing”—from the point of Bella’s tail that meets her back, out and back and around and over to her shoulder, then over to her face, from back to front. The little feline, I was so concerned I’d muss it up. When I’m
