Tiger’s eye

July 30th, 2014 3 comments


Yesterday was Global Tiger Day, and I decided to do a watercolor  painting of a tiger and then  quickly sold it. But I discovered that I am really enjoying painting tigers! This morning, I found myself wondering how little of a tiger I could paint and still find myself looking at a tiger. Then I started noticing the wonderful colors, patterns and textures to be found on a tiger’s face. And the tiger’s eye, which looks deep into your soul… and sees dinner.

This painting is for sale, $60 buys it. It measures 5″ x 7″, on imported Italian watercolor paper. All proceeds go to ISEC Canada International Society for Endangered Cats.

In the garden

Painted a little garden scene this morning, inspired by all the colors in my garden and all of the amazing flowers you can see all over Seattle. This is a little postcard that someone is going to get in the mail. Decisions, decisions. This painting is not for sale.

21 – Enza, my cat poses again

February 21st, 2014 3 comments

enzaposeI thought I would take a picture of Enza posing, and draw from it later, but she wouldn’t cooperate. She wanted me to sketch her live or forget it. Every time I lifted my phone to snap a picture, she moved. So I settled into the sketch, marveling at how she had all of her toes in a row, black, cream, black, cream. Adorable. She held the pose for me while I multitasked (eating breakfast and sketching) good cat. she was rewarded with a kibble.. or 3.
