Casanova oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

I am SO relieved that this came out the way I intended. I have another orange cat on my easel that is fighting me like crazy. At least now I know I can still paint

Moody Tuesday, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

One A Day, oil on paper 6x6" $99

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Crystal Ball, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

More Muff, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

This is another image of my studio cat Shadow. He is so not a nice cat. That said, I can't imagine being out there without him

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Muff, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

This is my studio cat, Shadow. He's almost wild and consequently difficult to get images of. Sometimes it's hard to love a monster

Pretty Please, oil on paper 5x7"

Oh the pleading look we all know so well

Thursday, March 05, 2015

Misaligned, oil on paper 5x7" $99

Spring Tease, oil on hardboard 12x16" $528

Looking out my windows this morning this piece seems particularly appropriate. I haven't done many of the women with birds of late. I think it may need to be revisited

Sunday, February 22, 2015

Snow, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

I don't think you see this eye color in any cat except the all white. They say that blue eyed, all white cats are always deaf. Maybe that's Mother Nature's cruel way of balancing out their beauty

Crossroads, oil on hardboard 12x16" $528

I keep thinking I will toned down my palette for landscapes. Guess it hasn't happened yet

The Queen's Right Hand, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

This painting has found it's place in my favorites pile. I'm not sure what it is but I'm just really happy with it

Friday, February 13, 2015

Bedtime Story, 5x7" oil on paper $99

I think the light effect on this is kind of eerie. Everything took on the same color but was still identifiable. Is he good or is he evil?

Thursday, February 12, 2015

Did You HEAR That?!?!!! oil on paper, 5x7" $99

Thursday, February 05, 2015

Try To Resist (me) oil on paper 6x6" $99

This cat has such an alluring quality. Hard not to get sucked in.

Wednesday, February 04, 2015

We Were JUST Talking! oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

the shapes of these birds are just too wonderful to ignore

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Flirting?!?! NO! oil on hardboard 6x6" $99
