Black Friday Art Sale

What? A sale?  In your own home?  YES!  10% may not sound like much but when you’re considering big pieces like this, it’s a bargain!

Go to my website,

and find special, original and one of a kind Christmas gifts from $5.00 on up for kids and adults alike.

Use the code:

for a discount through Sunday!

*and why do I not give 40% discounts like big stores?  I am a small business.  I’ve worked like a crazy person to get ready for this and have had a super-difficult Covid year of sales. If I offered a 40% discount I would be operating at a loss.  Please value my art and know you’re getting lots of creativity and loved packed into each piece.  

#buylocal and please support your local business owners.

Pippy’s Adventures Painting

Pippy’s checking out the work.  I don’t think he’s impressed. 😆 He’s more concerned with squirrels, birds, lizards and voles.
This one’s called ‘Oh, Pippy!’  For sale.  If you love cats I have an entire series called ‘Pippy’s Adventures.’ You can see the whole series and a bunch of videos if you check me out on Instagram as Color_Cat_Cindy or go to my website,

New Cat Painting

This painting, which I named ‘Oh, Pippy,’ (for all the times we say exactly that when he gets into trouble) will be revealed this evening in its entirety.  The crazy, wild background symbolizes all the trouble and messes he gets into.  For sale.

Here he is in his unfinished state, wild, crazy background to indicate his wild, crazy, troublemaking self. 🤭
You will find him tonight at

Running Cheetah Painting

This big beauty is speeding along, kicking up the dirt on a bed of gold.  A very special painting looking for a very special place.  Message me if you’re interested in this beautiful all-archival piece.

It is truly beautiful.

More Sketchbook Pages

Continuing my sketchpad digging to find pieces I’ve done on top of backgrounds which I pre-painted. I’m leading my art students through watercolors and we’re sticking to backgrounds only so it’s a little less intimidating. 

I incorporated my molotow chrome marker for this floral so you have to compare photos to see how it reflects.

An Artist’s Sketchbook

This week I’m going through my sketchbooks to find examples for my art students for classes next week. I’m teaching them to paint in a non-intimidating way by painting backgrounds only, upon which we will start drawing next week. 

You can see I obviously painted this background first, likely intending it to be a floral.  I think I drew this pretty lady from a magazine while flying from somewhere to somewhere, but... I really have no idea.  Anyway, here she is.  I thought she was as pretty as a flower, so it fit.

I make a practice of preparing my sketchbookpages with backgrounds of color because I usually just travel with pens.  With the background done, my work is also half done.
