#selfquaratine

Good afternoon all!  It was a good afternoon, until I coughing.  So, hoping for the best,

In the meantime, I haven’t heard of a virtual contagion of coronavirus, so anyone reading this blog is safe.

But cat lovers rejoice!  Let me remind you that for us, it’s St. Gertrude of Nivelles Day, the Patron Saint of Cats.  Yes, we don’t have to eat corned beef and cabbage, if we don’t want to.  We don’t have to care about snakes, when we have these delightful, purring creatures to celebrate.

So, without further commercial interruption: Cats!

Five by seven inch drawing “Pumpkin”,  Matted to eight by ten inches.

For sale, here.

Do it again, again

Okay,  I really should give it some time  before I post a drawing I’ve finished.  There’s something about posting it, for all, the world to see, to show off my mistakes.  Ooops.

So, as I  looked at “Winter Horse Farm”, I realized, once again, it was too stark and uninteresting.  So, this is what it looks like now:

And on to other news,

I’m trying to figure out how to put my display in the darn car!  I didn’t expect it to be so involved a display, nor did I expect the cargo space in the car to be so small.  That’s really not a good combination.  It’s going to take a lot of organizing, and as you know, my organizational skill are almost non-existent.

But I’m looking at a nearby craft show that I might do.  Fortunately, I will only be selling holiday cards and accent pieces.  Not nearly as complex…and I already have a decent picture of the display:

So, here are a few items I’m planning on putting up for sale:

Well, see you next time I put up a drawing too early.  Until then, au revoir.

Not for Sale

My wrist is getting better, and I am savoring (More like salivating over) the prospect doing artwork again.  Yes, in a little more than a week, my cast will be off. A little physical therapy, and I’ll be good to go.

After that announcement, I want to know…are you tired of blogs (including mine), trying to sell you something?  Well, I’m going to put a reverse on that, and show you what you can’t have at any price.

 

 

THECATFROMNEWYORKCITY

This is my cat, Pumpkin.  Not for sale, because, damn, it’s Pumpkin!

FREEDOMTOWERINSPRING

I gave this to a friend.

 

MERRITTPARKWAYFANTASY

This one, because I’ll be damned if I know where it is.

AWESTERNTAO

This was given to a different friend as a house warming gift. Boy, did my bf get pissed I did that. But, he never told me he liked it!

070

I bartered this one for energy healing sessions.  BF was pissed about that, too. In all seriousness, if I had known it was so special to him, I would have bartered something else.

DISCO

I finally learned my lesson.  BF loves it. Not for sale

511

This one I bartered for an art show in a coffeehouse in Manhattan. Yes, exhibit space is so competitive, you have to give some kind of exchange for even a coffeehouse show.

SOLD!

This one I lost by default, because I left it at a gallery too long after the show was over. we didn’t have a car back then. i always meant to make arrangements to pick it up, but time went by faster than I realized.

CLOUDOVERGREENWICH

One of  my favorites. Given to a friend. I do have reproductions of it.  No reproductions of my friend. She’s one of a kind.

Given to a charity.

EMBRACINGMYINNERCAT

Of course my favorite, and my logo.  And damn! She was my cat Hannako!

 

There’s more, but that’s it for now. My finger is tired. When the cast comes off, I’ll be able to type normally, again. I’m thankful for that.

 

 

No apologies…this is cute as #&@@#

While I was visiting my brother and his wife, I was shown some of their photos.  Among them, was their kitten, Max, hidden among stuffed animals.  The colorful animals made a lively color scheme.  And of course, it had a cat.  I just had to draw it.

Okay, I try to stay away from things that are cute… But even I couldn’t escape this.

So, here’s the first sketch:  Fur Babies.

So no apologies…enjoy the unbridled cuteness.  More about Max’s story later.
