Daily Photo: Handsome

Smokie has been learning to pose too. My, doesn’t he know what to do with his tail? And those amber eyes! I just went into my bedroom to get a frame I have stored in there but Smokie was just irresistible on the bed. I thought I’d gotten the photo

Daily Sketch: Together

Mimi took my seat in the studio, then Bean settled on the seat with her. They were curled almost like yin and yang but not quite, since yin was so much smaller. But still I could see the flow of shapes between them. I like a nice single varied line,

Daily Photo: Modeling in Monochrome

It’s not quite monochromatic, but close. Bella and the mahogany headboard and window muntins are nearly the same color while the bedspread and light from outside the window are both nearly white. Lots of nice repeated curve shapes. And of course, the centerpiece is Bella. But Bella wasn’t happy with

Daily Sketch Reprise: Cat-eating Bag, 2014

That nasty bag is devouring my cats again, the same one that tried to swallow Mimi whole last week. Mr. Sunshine got out safely, but not before I sketched him. It was another case of pulling artwork out of the bag  to put away and leaving it standing in place

A Sympathy Card for Rescues, Featuring Kennedy

Those bristly whiskers and gaunt face, copper eyes with a cataract, bent legs, stiff spine, who could forget any of Kennedy’s battle scars? But mostly, who could forget the part that was just him: happy, full of love and friendship, despite his pain and his past as you clearly see

Daily Sketch: A Tiny Moth

We’ve had an outbreak of tiny little moths in the house that flutter and don’t seem to get anywhere, they hover in the air and would seem easy to catch, but they are frustratingly elusive. This has proved to be an important catification exercise in stalking, leaping pouncing, and running

Daily Photo: Why Are You Bothering My Sunshine?

Mimi was actually dozing on the warm windowsill and I did awaken her with my clumsy coming up the steps. Humans are so loud, even in slippers. After some time of me standing there she opened her eyes. Certainly not to look at me, though that did happen, and I

Featured Artwork: A Few Archived Pet Sitting Logos

I’ve been organizing old files, and I decided to take a break from portraits and fine art to feature an illustration assignment. I’ll have a few more in the next few months—if I’m not too embarrassed at my minimal skills with pen and ink at the time! In the late

Daily Sketch Reprise: A Pile of Socks

“Oh, thank you,” said Mr. Sunshine as he happily squinted and stepped into the pile of socks I was sorting and folding. “This is just…so nice…purrrrfect,” he said as he began purring loudly and kneading slowly and thoughtfully with both front paws. Cats and laundry just go together as if

Daily Photo: Find Your Own Bed

I stripped the bed to change it and it was suddenly irresistible. The only place to sleep was on the clean bedspread that hadn’t even been spread on the bed yet. Would you brave these four expressions to not only move them but completely undo their little world? They are
