This is one of my favorite paintings of my cats...I can't seem to let the original go, but the prints have been quite popular!
Those big green eyes were so solemn and trusting--he loved everyone, and never met a human he didn't want to cuddle up to. Wouldn't you love to pet that soft fur? I did...
I loved playing with a variety of watercolor techniques to express the intimate relationship with with this sweetie...in my Etsy shop.
My fine art prints come to you backed and covered with protective acetate, ready for you to mat and frame to fit your decor.

on archival paper, they're 1.5 x 7 inches. This one was using the primaries...lots of fun!
I do a lot of demonstrations of techniques for my classes, books, and articles...many of them are just color swatches testing pigments, demonstrating washes or brush strokes, or showing texturing techniques. I decided to make some of these into bookmarks (ACEOs to come!) and make them available here.
I let the color, shapes, and textures suggest what I want to add to the design...cats (of course!), nature, Celtic crosses...and who knows what's next? The three bookmarks shown here are examples of what I'm inspired by.
I'm feeling frugal AND creative, and it's delightful!
My husband and I love to read, and we often use bookmarks made from my demonstrations or cropped from paintings...the bookmarks are surprising sturdy, as much as we read they really get hard use!
These have been punched to accept a satin ribbon chosen to complement the color; they're signed on the back. I hope you enjoy using them, and reading your favorite books.
I use pH-neutral paper and pigments that will survive the test of time.
(On your screen these bookmarks will look larger than they do in reality.)
Take a peek, if you like, there are lots of other bookmark designs , prints, and original paintings!
