Daily Sketch Reprise: Birdwatching, a Family Activity

This is Mr. Sunshine (kind of listening to me), Mimi (intently watching) and Mewsette (crouching to pounce) watching birds at the feeder outside the dining room window. They sleep in a heap, and they watch birds in a cluster, all pressed together, often with mama Mimi in the middle. This

Featured Artwork: Winter Cats

A Portrait of an Old Cat: Afternoon Nap ~ An old cat, a gentleman, he has found a quiet spot, upstairs in the afternoon, and has so perfectly placed himself a little off-center on the expanse of white bedspread, illuminated by stark winter light through the window. (Stanley finds all

Daily Sketch: Smokie in the Basket

Smokie is cute no matter what he does, and especially when his furs and feathers are draped over the edges of a basket. Kind of the epilogue of today’s basket adventure with Mr. Sunshine. . . . . . . . What other sketches did I post on or around

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mewsette in Sun

I still like this one, so much that I’ve had her up in my studio since this date last year! Mewsette lets the warm sun wash her back while she sits and simply looks lovely. I was in the mood for a more detailed pastel today, and decided to also

Daily Sketch: The Impossible Angle

Mewsette wanted to play and sat quietly but intently looking at me to get me to wave that waxed paper backing from double sided tape, and gave me quite the assignment: use three hands to hold the sketchpad with one hand, draw with another, and wave the toy with a

Daily Sketch Reprise: Reflecting on a Winter Morning

Well, it’s not quite winter but we did have a little flurry and the light is now that winter light that fills the windows when the trees are bare. Bean sat quietly on the wardrobe after his bath and the angle was perfect. He is not reflecting in the mirror,

Daily Sketch: Mewsette Did Not Give Up Her Basket

In fact, she slept in it all afternoon (a reference to today’s photo). The lighting is a little puzzling because my worklight shone down on her back but left her head in shadow. The only real distinguishing factor is her ear. I had to sort my orders into another basket.

Featured Artwork: Sophie Gets a Look at Herself

I have one holiday cat painting, and this is it! Sophie was a little goofy, and spent a good bit of time in obvious contemplation of an object that might be in front of her, or of nothing at all, that I could see, at least. She did at one

Daily Sketch Reprise: Two Cats Playing

Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine playing with a ball in the tub, trying to keep minimal and catch only their actions, using the brush pen. Fun, just as much as their fun! Just the way the ink worked out, they still look like Siamese cats to me! . . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: Looking Out on the Morning

Mimi crouches on the windowsill, watching the back yard, glad, I am sure, that she is inside on this wet and misty morning. Another sketch that came together in my mind as I looked at Mimi on the windowsill, and the scene outdoors that is so familiar to me. .
