Linocut cat

I have been getting very bored with my style, materials and subjects, so I decided to experiment with some printmaking again.
The cat is based on one of my many drawings of my own Marigold, but the tiger stripes aren’t hers. She is a rather boring orange and white that doesn’t translate too well into  monochrome.
My tools and materials are inexpensive Speedball brand and I don’t have a press, but at least it is a different challenge that will maybe jump-start my muse.

Letting Sleeping Dogs Lie

I haven’t been doing as much painting recently, but still drawing and sketching.
Quite often it is the dog who gets to star. I really should make an effort to do some action sketches. Letting the sleeping dog lie is all very well but they get a bit repetitive.

Window Sketches

I am a big fan and follower of the urban sketchers group, but I am too much of a wuss to spend much time at it myself through the Ontario winter. I have to make do with these views through my windows.


There is always the Cat

Her name is Marigold and her purpose in life is to torment the dog.  She is also an escape artist. She has made a (cat sized) hole in the top of the screen door (twice) and she escaped into the ceiling at the vet’s office. It took them an hour to get her back down. When she wants to come inside she climbs up to the 2nd floor bathroom window. She has to scale several roofs to get there and she can’t come in that way, but she yells at whoever is in there to let them know that they need to come down to open the door.
