Mr. Sunshine and Mimi positioned themselves to sit behind the thin screen of winter geraniums and dwindling houseplants to watch the birds at the feeder, but soon Mimi felt compelled to bathe. It was just pretty, just a tiny bit colorful, just enough to be inspiring with two black cats quietly spending some time. I have to admit I unjustly added some padding to Mr. Sunshine, who is quite slender and lithe.
This was also a test of “where do I end the sketch?”. It’s easy to get all literal with a scene like this and add in the windowsill, the window itself, the rest of the cabinet the bookshelf…but I had decided, as I was looking at it earlier while they were eating, just to create a denseness of shapes that would create their own shape collected together.

Where to find this artwork
The original is still available, and I have this artwork available in many different print forms—on paper and canvas. Seeing how popular my ink and watercolor tiles and coasters and placemats were I’m adding this image to the group too!

This month’s desktop calendar
I’ve worked this image into a desktop calendar for you to enjoy and use for the entire month. Looking at the downloads from previous months and averaging out which dimensions fit which devices, I have reduced the number of variations from 12 to three. It was very time-consuming to create all the variations with new devices arriving all the time, so I have one for horizontal monitors/screens, one for square monitors/screens, and one that should fit the dimensions of nearly all mobile devices.
If these sizes don’t work for your device, or if you have problems, please let me know. Often I can troubleshoot the reason an image won’t download or won’t load on your device, but if I just can’t figure it out I can just email it to you and hope that works.
How to download and use your desktop calendar
- Click on one of the images below that matches the dimensions of your monitor to open the image in a new page.
- For desktop computers and laptops, right-click on that image and on a desktop computer choose “save as desktop wallpaper” or “save as background” or whichever option your operating system gives you to be able to do this. You may also simply save it to your hard drive and set it as your background from there.
- For mobile devices, download the image to your gallery then choose it as your wallpaper—this is slightly different on all devices.
