Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!

Totally off the beaten path!
Tall Grass and Catnip, 5.5 x 4" Mixed Media (watercolor and ink on paper)
I know, this is completely different from my usual posts... something that is simply for fun. If you've been reading my posts for the past few weeks, you know that we had to put our beloved kitty down very unexpectedly due to an unsuspected but quick development of cancer. He's been noticeably absent and very missed from our house. I'm doing a few small paintings of him, in a contemporary and almost cartoonish way, doing the various 'cat things' he liked to do. This one depicts him stalking who knows what in the tall grass and rolling in the catnip. Though he was inside the house most of the time, he loved being outside the most!
I'm not sure what I will do with these small cat paintings (more to be posted soon!), but I'm thinking they might make fun greeting cards. More on that later too!
