Hair Sketches

Some sketches I did today on the theme of extreme hairdoes. Maybe I will make these into a triptych of watercolors sometime.

Tub Cats

Lester loved to hang out in the tub all day. Sometimes Noreen (my other cat) would join him.

After I finished the painting and was looking at it and feeling pretty good about it and especially about how the knobs turned out, I realized I had forgotten the spigot. I think my train of thought was, I especially like the faucet. Wait! There is no faucet! How annoying is that? Oh well. One small caveat: this painting is inspired by my cats, but my bathroom does not necessarily look this grimy.

Illustration Friday: Red

Here is my piece for this week's topic on Illustration Friday: red. It's been very cold the last couple of days, and this is pretty much what I look like when I go out.

New Painting

So, my boyfriend has been gone to Canada for a little while now, and I've been busily painting in all my free time. Here is my latest watercolor.

Goodbye Lester

My cat Lester died recently. He was a lovely, delicate and immensely stupid black cat who liked to eat anything-my paint, lint, and unfortunately string, which is what ultimately did him in. I painted this picture of him the day after he died. Goodbye Lester, you will be missed.
