Happy Saint Nicholas Day!

Just popping in to share today's project - four St. Nicholas ornaments to honor this, his Dec. 6th feast day, and to honor the source of our modern day Santa Claus tradition....

Each ornament is 4 1/2" tall, hand painted in acrylics, and sealed with an acrylic varnish. They're $53 including shipping in the US, and as of typing this, one is already sold (they were posted a few minutes ago on Facebook too) and the others are available on a first-come basis.

If you'd like to claim one, email me at :)

Thanks for taking a peek, and I'll be back very soon with new work!

A Bittersweet Tribute

I've been crazy busy in the studio these last few days, following a little pre-Thanksgiving getaway with the Mice President. (more on that another time) For now, I want to show you the latest pieces, the first a rather bittersweet tribute to all the feral kitties out there, trying to stay warm this winter...

 Many years ago I purchase a CD (a Canadian compilation, as I remember), called "Christmas Songs", and it included this sad, sweet tune that served as a reminder of what sweet creatures cats are, and to always do what we can to offer them shelter, especially in the colder months. (Warning: you may need a couple of tissues for this)...

Was I right?

Anyway, back to the piece I painted. It was inspired by this bittersweet song, and painted in honor of all the sweet ferals out there looking for a home. The piece measures 11" long x 7 3/4" wide  x 4 1/2" deep, and is painted in acrylics on a bentwood box, and finished with a clear, acrylic varnish. Inside, I've painted the cat constellation....

It will be available on Etsy later this evening.

In the meantime, there are a couple of other pieces available there, "Santa Paws" (a piece honoring dog rescue), and this little snow leopard ornament - the last of six, five of them already claimed...

I like how the blue background sets off his eyes. :)

There will be more ornaments coming soon, and as always, I'll be sharing previews on Facebook, so please do click the link on the right hand sidebar and find me there!

OK, back to work I go - many Yuletide goodies to paint, and a newsletter to get out too (to be added to my mailing list just shoot me a message or email)....

Wishing you a warm and wonderful December!
