Lap Cat

Good Morning and Happy Monday!
Today’s lap cat is digitally enhanced in Photoshop. The original art is a watercolor.

Sit on my lap cat.
I need to tell you my woes.
Dear friend, I need you.

Good Morning Kitty

My Neighbor
I live in an apartment and a kitty lives across from me. Every morning she is out on her patio catching the early morning sun. Yesterday, I could tell she saw something of interest. Her owners never let her out beyond the patio, so I wondered what was on her mind.

Gingerbread house making
On Sunday, my 6 1/2 year old granddaughter invited school friends over for a gingerbread house decorating party. Here are a few of the masterpieces.

Cats and Coffee

Good morning – I’ve pulled a couple drawings from my archives, today. I’ve got a busy day ahead prepping for Thanksgiving and spending time with my granddaughter. I wasn’t able to put pen to paper this morning. Enjoy your day, I will too!

All about the Cats

Good Morning… I keep an ongoing cat journal for fun. I seem to draw lots of cats. I’d love to have a cat in my life but I’m very allergic to them, so drawing is the next best thing.

Here are few of my cat journal entries. I have posted several on Instagram, so some of you may have seen them already. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing them again, MEOW!!!

October 31 – Happy Halloween

Mother Earth Halloween Hat – made using a paperbag, acrylic paint and scrapbook papers. The netting is a toddler skirt I found at the Dollar Store. I’m ready to trick or treat!

The Lion

Another sketch using the same technique as yesterday. I painted the background first and then added the lion, taking advantage of the already added color.


Pumpkin Head

Halloween is just around the corner. I’ll be spending the evening with my daughter and 6 year old granddaughter. We are going to wear costumes. I’m making a hat using a paper bag. I will post it in a few days. Today, I offer you a cat getting ready for Halloween.

Cozy Kitty

Good Morning – My Cozy Kitty is another cutout and collage watercolor. The blue background was made using a paper towel to soak up paint and the texture of the paper towel was imprinted on the remaining paint. I added watercolor pencil when the paint dried. I painted three of these kitties before I finally surrendered.

Cats are finicky
But, they don’t mind wearing coats
with lots of color
