8"X10" single black matt included
Paper size: 5½” X 7½”
Image in matt: 5” X 7”
December 2009
SOLD

I am still inspired by the relationship of cats and flowers. Some cats seem to “belong” next to a certain flower. This Oriental cat looks comfortable next to these Poinsettia Flowers. I love Poinsettia Flowers. I used to live in Ventura California. (14 years) That city was officially called “The Poinsettia City”. It seemed like every house had one or more Poinsettia bushes. They were so very beautiful to see everywhere and I miss them.

"Siamese Cat, Rose Garden & Bumble Bee"


“Siamese Cat in Rose Garden & Bumble Bee”
Original oil painting
4” X 6” gesso prepared hardboard panel (masonite) - ¼” thick
Original Small Work of Art - ®OSWOA
November 2009
SOLD

This young Siamese cat has found something very interesting in the rose garden. I hope his curiosity doesn’t get him stung.

I have been trying out different support panels for oil painting. This one is 4”X6” – official ®OSWOA size (stands for original small work of art). It is ¼” thick hardboard (masonite) that I applied 3 coats of gesso to with a light sanding in between coats. It is very smooth. I haven’t decided yet if I like a smooth surface or a canvas surface. Both surfaces have their merits. So I guess I’ll just keep experimenting as long as I have these supports I might as well use them. This painting can be framed in a 4” X 6” frame.

5” X 7” - Raymar canvas covered hardboard panel (masonite)- ¼” thick
October 2009
Sold

A new born Unicorn foal plays in the field and has just noticed some brightly colored flowers. He wonders if they are very good to eat.
I took a painting that I had done in January of this year and painted over it. It was called “Little Brown Pony”. (see previous post here) It had turned out a little too dark for me and it didn’t sell so I felt free to alter it. This time I turned it into a little light colored Palomino Unicorn foal. I worked on the lights and contrasting darks and also changing the flowers to pink instead of white.

October 2009

This little oriental kitten has a guardian angel to watch over him and guide his way.

At least I hope so.

Angel, child, robin and the colors of fall.

Autumn arrives with messages of change and brilliant colors signifying transformation. The robin tells the child that he must go to another place for awhile. He lovingly reminds her that he will return once again in the spring and to remember that in his absence he will always be with her in her heart. Even in physical separation, love is the glue that binds us all together forever.

"The Angel's Cat"



“The Angel’s Cat”
Acrylic 5"X7" small format painting
Iridescent gold acrylic paint on the halos
Raymar canvas wrapped panel
October 2009
SOLD

Shortly after I finished my painting of the “Dark Angel Kitten” there came a cry from behind my bedroom window in the middle of the night. We woke up and discovered a small approximately four month old kitten scared and hungry and needing some shelter. After much deliberation we took him a bowl of food on the porch which he proceeded to gobble down in no time. In the morning he was still there on the porch curled up and shivering. Our hearts melted and we took him in. He clung to us afraid he would be put out again.
It’s been about a week now and we definitely have a new kitten. Living out in the country we have witnessed lots of people dumping unwanted kittens along the road leaving them to fend for themselves and find a new home or cease to exist. That’s actually how we got our other cat “Missy”, who is now a few years old. Well, he’s very comfortable with us now and running all over and playing with toys and learning how to be a cat. And because he looks very much like my childhood cat (yellow tabby male) I named him “George” in honor of my first loved pet.

Because of all of this I was thinking that there definitely is a higher power that takes care of all His creatures. He sends out His angels to watch and protect over all of His children. That’s were the idea for this painting came from.

"Dark Angel Kitten"

“Dark Kitten Angel”
Black oriental kitten as an angel
4”X6” OSWOA – original small work of art
Acrylic paint on a prepared hardboard panel
Iridescent gold acrylic paint in the halo
October 2009
SOLD

I just HAD to do one more (at least) of this beautiful black oriental cat. There is something about this cat that inspires me. I wonder why there are so many negative thoughts that seem to surround the black cat. Some of the sweetest cats I have known have been black. Especially the last one we had the privilege of taking care of for a while. His name was "Tom" and although his stay with us was short, it was also very sweet and we miss him.
So I decided to make this black cat into an angel kitten in honor of "Tom" who is now gracing heaven with his delightful personality. The role of "Angel" seems to suit him and he accepts it well.

"Asking Directions"



“Asking Directions”
Bunny, Bee and Sunflowers
ACEO – size 2½” X 3½”
Story included
Watercolor and acrylic paint
Strathmore illustration board
September 2009
SOLD

Lost in the tall grass, Bumper the bunny can’t find his sense of direction. Then he begins to have some hope when he finds a little creature to ask which way to go, to get back to his thicket. But all this fellow does is make a lot of buzzing noises and keeps showing him his pointy behind.
I guess everybody has their own agenda and the only way to find your OWN way is to follow your own nose. But don’t ask me; I’m just following my own nose, and the only thing I can tell you about is how to get back to my own thicket, and even then I’m not quite sure.

On this painting I used the same type of cat that I used on the last one, except I made him a “winter” cat with a cool almost ice crystal like background, and I also did this one a little bigger.

"Autumn Flame Point Siamese Cat"

Oil on a 4”X 4” canvas panel
September 2009
SOLD

I’ve wanted to do some more oil painting lately, so I started out with this small format 4”X 4” painting of a lovely flame point Siamese cat. This cat’s colors are so beautiful and very autumn like so I just had to put some fall leaves in the background.

Kitten:
“Good Morning Mr. Bumble Bee.
How do you do today?
Promise not to sting on me,
And we can go and play.”

Bumble Bee:
“The morning sun is on the ridge.
The fields are full of dew.
Let’s romp and play and have some fun,
I’d never sting on you.

Sometimes I do a little painting that just cries out for a poem or story. This one wanted to be a simple children’s poem. I print my little story or poem on an aceo sized card (shown in the pictures above) and include it with the art.

September 2009

I have been wanted to try my hand at depicting a Pegasus horse. I like the idea of a horse that can fly. So here is my first attempt. If the Pegasus horse was flying in the clouds at sunset, I think that it would appear to be made of gold.

8” X 10” single black matt included with purchase.
SOLD

An oriental black cat peeks out from behind a rose bush.

I just had to do another painting using this beautiful black oriental cat because I enjoyed doing the last painting so much. This time I wanted to emphasize this cat’s beautiful eyes, so I made him “hide” behind the roses with just one eye and partial hints of his nose and ear showing.
I used the same sort of technique and materials as in the last painting of this cat and roses except I used Stonehenge paper this time. The first piece had a soft cool light and tone whereas this one has more of a late afternoon feeling. I also made the cat's eye a little different color than the last one. I can’t decide which one I like best. They are of the same subject but very different.

"Black Oriental Cat & Roses"

Date of completion: September 2009
8” X 10” single black matt included with purchase.
SOLD

This black oriental cat surrounded with roses seems to be like a king in his court.

I found this beautiful picture of a black oriental cat awhile back. His eyes are so intriguing to me and there is something about the way his is sitting that I love. I decided to paint him with roses because they just seem to go together so well.
First I used pastel pencil for my drawing, composition and color notes, then using the pastel pencil like watercolor pencils, I brushed my drawing with water to smooth, model and fix the pastel. Next with acrylic matt medium and acrylic paint I painted many layers using scumbling (light over dark) and glazing (dark over light) to achieve the final effect. It has a finishing coat of acrylic varnish and is sent in a single black matt ready for framing.

SOLD

This little white oriental kitten is mesmerized by the beauty of a Dahlia blossom.

This is another piece in my “cats & flowers” 5” X 7” series. I am enjoying the “play” of these two complimentary colors. A peach color and its blue-green compliment create such a soft pleasing late afternoon feeling.

Unicorn Landscape with Pink Flowers"

“Unicorn Landscape with Pink Flowers”
Original ACEO miniature painting 2½” X 3½”
Watercolor and acrylic paint
Arches hot press watercolor paper
August 2009
SOLD

There is a land out there somewhere that has the most amazing creatures living in it, and if you find this land, sit downwind in a ditch and be very quiet for a long time, then you just might get a glimpse of something very special and unusual.

With this ACEO painting I went for a more “true” miniature”. I thoroughly enjoyed it too. I’ve always loved to paint landscapes and have always loved miniature art too, so this one was a delight for me to do.

Watercolor and colored pencil
Stonehenge 90lb paper
August 2009
SOLD

You just never know what sort of meetings and conversations take place in grass fields way out in the country where no human eyes are there to observe them.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I used my colored pencils for most of it, then added watercolor to smooth out the tones.

Paper size: 6” X 8”
Acrylic & watercolor paint
Stonehenge 90lb paper
Date of completion: August 2009
8” X 10” single black matt included with purchase.
SOLD

A mother mermaid resting in a current swirl teaches her young daughter how to comb her hair. I think it might be a little hard to comb the tangles out underwater, so the mermaids must have a special way to do this.

I’ve been doing a lot of cats in the last year or so and I needed a little change from that subject, so I decided to do something with a mermaid. I have some 40+ (I’m not telling) years experience in doing portraits and figures, so the subject of mermaids is interesting to me. I had fun with this one and I might want to try a few more.

“Encounter on a Blue Flower”
Tabby Kitten Fairy & Ladybugs
ACEO painting - 2½” X 3½”
Acrylic paint
Strathmore Illustration board
August 2009
SOLD

Short story:
Once upon a time there was a tiny tabby kitten fairy that lived in the garden behind the house. He was very lonely because none of the other kitten fairies would play with him. He had such a large red nose and all of the other kitten fairies had cute little pink noses. He was very lonely and sad until one day while sitting on a blue flower three red ladybugs happened to land on the same flower. They were not repulsed by his red nose at all. In fact they thought he was very beautiful, and invited him to come play with them and be their friend. After that the little tabby kitten fairy was no longer lonely because he had friends. He is seen now happily flying and tumbling among the flowers in the garden with his new friends. The End

“Napping on a Pink Cloud”
Gray Kitten Fairy & Mouse Fairy
ACEO painting - 2½” X 3½”
Watercolor and acrylic paint
Strathmore Illustration board
August 2009
SOLD

It occurs to me that fairies being outfitted with wings have the ability to take a nap just about anywhere they want too. So I painted this little gray kitten fairy and his mouse fairy pal taking a little nap on a very comfy pink cloud that just happened to drift by. It looks so inviting to me that I think I’ll find a pink cloud of my own to snuggle up in and drift away for a while.

8” X 10” single black matt included with purchase.
SOLD

These Calla Lily flowers have always amazed me. There is something magical about them. I saw my first one in the woods while my husband and I were traveling in upper Minnesota. It took my breath away and I never forgot that flower posed so majestically in the forest.
But I’m thinking if you watch them carefully and for a long time, you might see some visitors to them that will prove just how magical they really are.
I was sent a picture of a beautiful Oriental white cat that was in such an amazing pose that I knew I wanted to do something with this cat pose, but it took awhile for the idea to come to me. I loved the way his tail was positioned and knew that it reminded me of something. Then when I saw another Calla Lily, I realized that it was so reflective of the Calla Lily flower, and the rest was just magic.

SOLD

From the Coral Reef Times:
It’s time for the annual Coral Reef Thoroughbred Seahorse races. The winner for this year is “Seabiscuit & Marty Mermouse”. Due to Seabiscuit’s champion breeding and his exceptional training along with Marty’s outstanding jockey talents, the pair easily took first place in this year’s event. Mermice have proved to be the best jockeys because they are so small and nimble. They are heading for the winner’s circle now to except their well deserved trophy.

Watercolor, colored pencils and acrylic paint
Stonehenge 90lb paper
August 2009
SOLD

This “Oriental Cat and Pink Lilac Bush” painting is another piece in my series involving cats and flowers. There is something really interesting about the contrasting colors and the combination of the subject matter of a cat with flowers that pleases me. I also liked this cat’s expression caught in the strong light coming from the right of the picture. I was really happy with the way this one came out.

"Merkitten and Mermice"

I was thinking that if there are Mermaids then there must be Merkittens, and if there are Merkittens then it stands to reason that there must be Mermice.

Casualty of War

The young gray cat and the little toy mouse
Fought a terrible war in the grass by the house.
The battle raged on ‘till the shank of the noon
And the end arrived not a moment too soon.

With his stuffing pulled out from a previous patch
And one eye hanging from where it used to attach,
The little toy mouse with his energy spent
Spoke with a lisp, for his whiskers were bent.

The cat was listening with his ears perked up high
While the mouse assured that he would not die,
Said: “It was so much fun but I’m feeling a mess,
So I’m wondering now if we could just play chess.”

"Yin Yang Kittens"

“Yin Yang Kittens”
A study in relationships
4” X 4” – miniature painting
Acrylic paint on a canvas panel
Edges are painted black
July 2009
SOLD



This pair of oriental kittens sleep together with their bodies forming the Yin Yang symbol for the balanced universe.
I have always loved this symbol because it means a lot to me. It always seems to be the opposing elements that attract us the most and hold us together. Things that are the same or similar are interesting enough, but things that are completely opposite create excitement and energy creating the “glue” to hold each other together in the balanced dance of life. This seems to me to be true for everything in life from complimentary colors of paint to different types of people.
I am celebrating these interlacing differences with this miniature painting. This is an idea I had some time ago, and I have been playing around with the design for so long that I decided it was time to actually DO something with it. I of course chose a pair of oriental kittens for the Yin and the Yang; it seemed to make the most sense. I had lots of fun with it and I hope that you will enjoy it too. This is a small format 4” X 4” miniature acrylic painting on a canvas panel.
It also occurs to me that this painting could be hung in any direction and still be a good composition. (This is true except for my signature which designates which way I choose to view it.)

Click here to see my Ebay store for prints.

A brown bear and a blue bird were talking in a field today. This is what I overheard them say while I painted their encounter.

Brown Bear:
“Hello, I wonder if you know if there are any good fields of yummy blue berries close by?”

Blue Bird:
“Yes, I just came from a very large field just within a mile south of here. They are so delicious there that I gorged myself. In fact I ate so many that I turned blue.”

I’m not sure that I believe what the blue bird said; I’m just reporting what I heard.

Camouflage:
Another way to escape or rather to hide from being detected is the use of camouflage. The dictionary defines the word camouflage as a “deceptive expedient” using paint, nets or foliage. This little mouse is experimenting with the foliage option. We’re all hoping that his experiment with camouflage works.

Butterfly:
“Hello, I wonder if you mind if I rest here for a while. It’s so hot that all my flowers are wilting, so it’s been a real effort searching for decent nectar today and I just need a short nap to gain my strength. Your nose is so soft and it makes a good resting place.”
Cat:
“Sure, I’ll just try to hold my head still for awhile. All the mice, birds and lizards are hiding in the shade today anyway. It’s just too hot to play chase, so I haven’t got anything else to do. Always glad to help you out.

Sometimes the best thing we can do with our day is to be of service for someone else.

This Oriental cat and Hydrangea flower painting is another piece in my 5” X 7” series involving cats and flowers.
I was really happy with the way this one came out. I was interested mostly in the relationship of the shapes, colors and composition. There is something really nice about the color combination of green and purple.
