I don’t know what we’d do without the cats… Mitchell and I each bring different things to the play. I build forts; Mitchell does Willie Mays. Crinkly paper that comes in Chewy boxes, and the Give a Crap boxes, with … Continue reading
There are a lot of things about the Platinum Carbon pen that are just plain stupid — like it doesn’t post (have a place for the cap) but dang this baby just writes and writes, and after all, that is … Continue reading
Gads. I’ve been putting this off long enough. Blankets and stolen sweaters that reminded me of Jai and/or Kamala. Cried through washing them. The clean stack made me cry more. And old throw that was bleached then I tried to … Continue reading
My grief when Jai died was overwhelming. I did not write much or draw him after — I have several starts, unfinished. Maybe I am just ready now to deal with the onslaught of grief that has been happening in … Continue reading

Just to show what it looks like when you are playing to learn a new medium and it doesn’t work. This so didn’t work! The masking fluid is tricky. It takes its own talent to use it right! Then I … Continue reading
Kamala is the most difficult cat, so smart, and does not want her image captured. She seems to know when I am studying her for a sketch, and moves away into a cozy box. I have to use a photo … Continue reading
Kamala is her daddy’s girl. She’d like to see me gone, and makes that known. She also has a huge fascination with my sketch bag, and sticks her head in it whenever she can. I’m not happy with the overall … Continue reading
