HA HA HA HAHAHAAAA! I don’t know what we’d do without the cats for laughs… Tough pose, finally tackled it, not liking it… Good practice but yeows, I need to do this again… foreshortened legs, all so very wrong! To … Continue reading
I had two images from which to refer while sketching this softly grey-brown long-hair cat. (See one below, along with my first sketch of Frank done in 2014 — I’ve learned a LOT!) Frank’s eyes came out bit too blue, … Continue reading
She is incorrigible… A climber, and as she is an indoor, and mostly in studio cat, she climbs the metal racks (scares the crap out of us) and then makes sure we see her. We’ve put kleenex boxes in all … Continue reading
I don’t know what we’d do without the cats… Yaman only has eyes for Mitchell… always waiting waiting or following him. To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new, improved dkatiepowellart.com “Memory is more indelible … Continue reading
I was feeding the birds and as I tossed seed onto the shed roof of the dock I realized I startled a raccoon. I am glad I did, as s/he was heading toward Nicolai, which is not a good place … Continue reading
Nighttime has been a wholly different time with my not sketching much. A friend has just had their first baby, a sweet little girl that may be a teenager before I get to meet her… I know that babies get … Continue reading
Many weeks ago we had a big fire downtown… Sketched it from our studio window in Robert Oster Toffee Ink with a Sailor Fude pen. To hear about classes, follow me on Instagram, Facebook or check out my new, improved … Continue reading
She is the little Squeak, the Squirt — the kitten who didn’t make it to foster care for a couple more days after her siblings were found, and so also, missed feedings and started life the runt. She’s not getting … Continue reading
Kamala was a smart tuxedo gurl kitty who lived on our deck for many years. We think she was abandoned by the previous tenants, and she was fascinated by our houseful of cats, but careful. She talked to our … Continue reading
We are working, still, harder than ever it seems. As we have no employees and the people we work with all have their own studios, it is an easy thing to do except that now we spend much more time … Continue reading
13. TAPE IS NOT A TOY We have resorted to putting it in small loops on a couple of things we absolutely cannot keep our willful, innocent-looking “kitten” from climbing. We tried squirting her with the water pistol. No deterrent. … Continue reading
Everyone enjoys a handwritten note! And a doodly posie or a work of art makes it more special… What are you waiting for? Get your writing on — spruce up someone’s life! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook … Continue reading
Sammy held the post as Chief Studio Cat and Greeter! When clients visited, he was never shy… He came out to set them at ease and contribute to our contractual discussions. Whenever a new piece came into the studio, … Continue reading
Yamantaka is THE most obsessive smart crazy cat… He finds toys in everyday objects like no cat that has ever owned me… He brings them to both of us for inspection which is good when it is dangerous. Yup, … Continue reading
Both Yaman and Savitri watch birds; the studio windows are by far the best bird watching windows because we can see murders of crows, flocks of gulls, smaller birds, and the occasional antics of a bluejay family. We’ve also seen … Continue reading
