I was asked to do a portrait of my friend's daughter and their two cats, one of whom, was nicknamed "baby horse" because he was so huge! Well, Wally died of old age shortly after I took photos of him for this painting, so I'm glad we got the ball rolling in-time to have this… Continue reading New Painting: Maria and Her Beasts
I can tell you that Tina the Queena is looking after it just fine. I guess the new couch is just a glorified cat bed because she hasn't left it in weeks.
Okay, maybe just lovers of Tina; she is kind of like Oprah, so that's why she's always on the cover. It is her "birthday week" after all. She's turning four. This is what I do when I should be doing actual work. Hey, why not?
Ike and Tina, 2013 These two crack me up. This is what they do the second I set foot in the kitchen, "MAMA WHAT ARE YOU DOING IS IT SNACK TIME!?"
Those were a few of the things I did this weekend while house sitting 4 cats (2 my own) and a wiener dog. First my friend Elle invited several of us to a Theirry Mugler dessert and perfume pairing event at Saks Fifth Avenue in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland. I'm shocked more people didn't… Continue reading Kitty Kamp and Theirry Mugler
This was the longest I'd been away from Ike and Tina.

Little Ike on the other hand, as you no doubt can tell from this photo, sleeps in total bliss -- always. I guess that's good,… Continue reading Sleepy Kittens Ike and Tina
A friend and avid collector of mine had me do a portrait of her cat Stella recently. Since the portrait of my now departed Milkshake is no longer for sale, she wanted a little cameo of that painting that Stella would be wearing. Neat huh? I like paintin' kittehs. Lady Stell Belle, 8x10" oil on… Continue reading New Commission, Kitteh!
Milkshake passed away yesterday evening just short of his sixth birthday. It was very sudden; a blood clot cut off the circulation to his back legs from a heart condition, and he went downhill within an hour after that. Nothing could be done. Thankfully I got him to the hospital with enough time that he… Continue reading RIP Milkshake
Why he decides to go sideways when he looks at the camera? I have no idea. The big news is that Milkshake has a long distance relationship with a girl cat named Snacks. Long distance being the red carpeted hallway between our apartments. But, they totally are aware of each other and he likes to… Continue reading Monday Milkshake Fix
