Daily Sketch Reprise: Love Cats, 2012

Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were bathing each other on my chair (yet more chair stealing today), and I sketched around, holding my place with my pencils until I caught the moment when, as Mewsette washed her brother’s face, he slipped his paws around her shoulders. That’s sweet enough, but when

Daily Sketch Reprise: All Lined Up and Waiting for Dinner, 2013

Published on August 22, 2015 in daily sketch

They had to work for their dinner tonight! I went into the kitchen—some time before dinner—and this huge mass of black cats moving around on the cabinet just had to be expressed. It’s a difficult angle because there is little room on either side of the cabinet and they were

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Big Bath, 2013

Jelly Bean organizes himself for a really big bath on my unfolded shirt on my worktable, stretching himself into a bigger split than I’ve ever accomplished since I was about six years old. So much for that unwrinkled shirt. Love the toes all spread. Drawn in charcoal. Click here to

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

Featured Artwork: “Find the Kitty in This Picture”, 1988

I’m going way back to my beginnings with this painting/sketch. It predates all of my pastels, but is actually my first work in color, when I decided to move from pencil to try to interpret some of the lovely colors I saw in the world around me, and especially in

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,

Hand-printed “Tabbies” Summer Notecards

These cards must be purr-fect because Mewsette supervises the printing! In this case it’s my block-printed “Tabbies” notecards. Bright-colored card stock and bright-colored inks, I’ve been having fun experimenting with the “Tabbies” series in different styles and colors. The names of the designs, from top right in the above photo,

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mousie in My Shoe, What Am I To Do? 2014

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. Click here to see other daily sketches.

Daily Sketch Reprise: Under the Kitchen Light, 2013

Mewsette washes Giuseppe’s face as Mr. Sunshine washes his belly after dinner this evening, something so familiar to me. They aren’t completely black cats here, but you’ll just have to take my word for it! I’d kind of intended something else for Black Cat Appreciation Day, but this is what

It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day

Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day, but if it wasn’t perfectly clear before, we celebrate black cats every day here at The Creative Cat! I feel I’m fortunate in so many ways that Mimi and her wonderful children came into my life and stayed, and there are many moments in
