Belladonna got an infection and, after failing to fight it off, is gone. She passed away last week, but was purring faintly even to the end there, while keeping me from reaching for my drink. She was very tired and old and had been with me over 18 years, so it was time. I’ll miss her very much. I do miss her.
Pod has been doing his best to console me, and life keeps moving on as it does. Plus, I got a cold two days later, because 2019 is just like that.
Rest in peace, old grumpy girl.

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. =^~,~^=

If you’ve been wanting my art, but haven’t got the budget for an original, I have good news!
After much trial and deliberation (and surgery/recovery), nine art prints are here to launch the new line! Five of them are on spiffing metallic pearl paper, and the other four are on a beautiful bright white archival stock. They’re all 8″x10″ (a standard frame size for easy display), and you can get yours for $49 plus shipping.
If these do well, I’ll bring in more designs and even other sizes! So don’t delay, get your gorgeous new art print today.

I’ve been having some health issues for a while, but in the last 6 months or so it’s really affected my ability to keep myself going. I’m having surgery next month that should help, so please bear with the erratic posting and cat photos until recovery and, hopefully, something resembling wellness happens.
You Can Help!
My Support Your Artist page has ALL the links, but right now Patreon and Etsy are the most helpful. Even Tweeting out a link to your favorite birthday card or public Patreon post could help keep the internets on and the cats fed.
And in the end, isn’t it the ability to upload cat photos that matters most?

As we move out of the trash year that was 2016, I know there is one important question on everyone’s minds: how are the cats of the world?
Belladonna is going to be 15 (!!) this spring, and while she’s thin and arthritic and grumpy, she’s still pretty spry and loves her heated cat bed. I need to take her in for an old lady vet checkup pretty soon, and we’ve installed cat stairs around to avoid too much leaping, but all in all she does pretty well. Also, since she’s so old, she is constantly spoiled rotten by both myself and roomie — she gets lots of extra treats and has graduated to yelling at us until someone turns on the faucet for her majesty to drink fresh water.
Her other current fave is her catnip dental treats, which you can help provide by supporting her human slave.
Pteropodidae (aka Pod), on the other hand, is hitting kitty middle age and getting the spread. He turned 8 this past autumn, and is getting quite the bodacious kitty bod going. I’m making a bit of an effort to give him more murder baby enrichment time with The Great Red Dot and the fuzzy snake, but overall I admit I kind of like his softer, lazier side. Even if he does sometimes make me go ‘oof’ when stepping on my tummy.
Podling definitely has the whole “cats are liquid and control their own gravity” thing going, especially when he doesn’t want to be picked up.
Podzilla would like you to buy something from the Etsy Shop so he can get a new cat tree from which to survey his domain.

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.
