My rhododendron and lilac are in full bloom now and honestly just walking out my front door is a treat. The scent of the lilac bush is amazing-it almost makes me forgive this area of PA for not being able to grow my favorite night blooming jasmine. Almost. The bees are happily buzzing around, inspiring me to make another bee kitty painting (working on that today for possibly tomorrow!)
My newest painting for today! Digital week is over so I thought I’d start back painting with a funky chicken and cat. If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you know I used to have backyard chickens. They were wonderful. Not only because of the fresh eggs, but we raised them from chicks and they were the sweetest and funniest creatures. Puddy cat loved to hang out in the yard while we tended to the chickens.
On a different note, today is also World Goth Day. It’s a running joke in my close circle of friends and family that I’m goth, only because we’ve all been asked so many times by random people if I’m goth. I’m not. Also, I re-did the first version of my Black Cat Lady digital art piece, took away the blue hair, kept the orangey background from the second version, and put the black button up blouse back on her. So that version is also available in my Society6 Shop now. I figured she’s kind of apropos for today. =)
Looking at my cabinet that holds my 8″x10″ and 9″ x 12″ paintings, it’s filled up pretty well! So because there are so many paintings, I’m going to take today and probably next week and work on illustrations on the iPad. Here are two that I just finished: A Halloween colored pattern with lots of kitties and one spooky little ghost that snuck in, and my favorite subject Tuxie Cat with Coffee. =)
Halloween Kitties and Ghost, available on a variety of items in my Society6 Shop!

I’ve just added lots of my artwork to many products in my Society6 shop! I realized I didn’t have a lot of my reproduction-aka ‘catified’ versions of old artworks available there, so I took 5 hours and edited and uploaded some of them. There’s still a LOT of paintings that I haven’t made available, so I will be adding more here and there. Take a look at the images below to see the new prints in shop! Click HERE to go to my shop.
