2020 is here!
It’s been 2019 all year, hasn’t it? But I still made a lot of art, including five Floating Galleries with 9 paintings apiece. Here’s my favorite dozen from the past year!
May 2020 bring us all clarity, compassion, comfort, and joy.

Belladonna and Podsworth are both still with me! She has lost a lot of weight because of her hyperthyroidism but is hanging on by sheer force of will (and meds). He has gained weight due to middle-aged spread, and also eating her diet. He’s about 2.5 times her weight now, and while it’s not super obvious at first glance, you can sure feel the difference picking them up. Oof.
Belladonna is 16 and a half now, and taking advantage of every single bit of spoiling that allows her. She’s got heating pads, cat stairs, wet food, broth, beef baby food, and she’s still an angry little waffle demanding I turn the faucet on for her to drink from. On the other hand, she sleeps on my chest sometimes and is smol and floof and I will miss her terribly when she finally shrinks to nothingness. She’s 30% tail and 70% grumpy, but still very pretty and lovable!
Podzilla there is in my spot, the little jerkface. He’s hit 10 which makes him officially also an elderly cat, but aside from the chonkification he’s pretty much the same as ever. He loves three things in life, cheese, feet, and pets. He’s currently asleep on my feet, because I was fidgeting too much to keep petting him when he was trying to sleep on my tummy. Both of them have deep resentment of my laptop and smartphone and would like to put in an op ed to the NYT except they aren’t allowed to use the computer. Woe.
Happy New Year from Thing One and Thing Two!
Santa says Ho Ho Ho but Bellaboo says No No No. For the record, the offending ribbon has been banished to someone’s holiday gift, and neither one of them was willing to wear it longer than the photo.

2019 is here!
Not gonna lie, 2018 wasn’t a great year for your artist, Dear Readers. But there were some good things to come out of it, like the art you see below. There were only six Floating Galleries with new art in them, and so I’ve chosen 2 from each to highlight.
Here’s hoping that 2019 brings us beautiful art, many moments of joy, and days filled with kindness.

2017 had a couple of missed months, a lot of heartache for a lot of people, and while I’m very glad to see the last of it, some good did come out of it! There’s some really standout pieces from the past year that feel like a refinement of earlier themes, and it was harder than usual to find a half-dozen unsold pieces to go in the Floating Gallery for you.
The blog has been quiet this past month, but don’t worry, the cats will be posing for their usual state of the thing in a few days. =^~,~^=

2016 has been a terrible year for so many reasons, but as I went through my backlist I found that I still like a lot of the art I made, despite everything else that was going on.
I’ve chosen all art that’s unsold this time around, a baker’s dozen with one from each month and an overall favorite that I can’t really explain my devotion to, but really, really love.

It’s the most reflective time of the year, when we all think back on what was shiny and good in the previous year. Since I enjoyed the post so much last year, I thought I’d once again choose a baker’s dozen of favorites, first month by month and finally one art to rule them all. Or something.

Yesterday was Frodo & Bilbo Baggins’ birthday, and mine as well!* To celebrate, I’m giving away a signed copy of my latest novel on Goodreads — check it out! Entries close midnight on September 30th.
*And Tom Felton, but he’s not really relevant.
