Featured ACEO: CAT MOM No. 2


This is No. 2 in my series of Cat Moms... A loving cat lady has her hands (and shoulders!) full with a tabby cat and her four precious kittens that she has rescued from the local animal shelter...(Don't delay, neuter or spay!)

This an original miniature watercolor painting from my "Cat Mom" Series . It is in ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) format, which means that the artwork size is 2.5" x 3.5".

Each miniature is hand-painted on super-heavy Arches 300-lb. acid-free cold-press watercolor paper with professional quality watercolor paints. It is initialed on front, signed, dated, and titled on back. These mini paintings are adorable when matted and framed!

You can bid on this item on my site at ebay; the auction ends at 8:06 a.m. PST on April 23. Bidding starts at $14.95. A percentage of the sale will be donated to the Oregon Humane Society!

Honk if you love geese! The weather is finally warming up, so it's time to say goodbye to the thousands of Dusky Geese (a subspecies of the Canadian Goose) who winter here in the Willamette Valley. The skies are filled every day with great V's of happily honking geese as they make their way north to their summer homes.

To find out more information about the Baskett Slough, a wildlife preserve designed with the Dusky Goose in mind (whose specialized winter habitat had been shrinking down to nothing), please visit this link: Baskett Slough National Wildlife Preserve

Featured Painting...SIAMESE PRINCESS

This is an original watercolor painting of a friend's beautiful Siamese cat on her favorite dragon chair. I did this painting as a demonstration piece at an annual show of the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire in Southern California. It shows what can be done with a very limited palette (blues and browns...).

It is painted on Arches 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper with professional high quality watercolor paints. The image is 14" x 10" and is matted in off-white in a standard 16" by 20" size, ready for framing.

This painting is for sale on my Etsy site:
