Holiday Special Pricing on Cat Cards

Yeah!  Max & Phoebe have authorized me to offer special pricing on their boxed greeting cards through 12/31/15!   All boxed cards are now priced at only $10 (plus shipping + tax, if applicable, of course).  Check out their Max & Phoebe Cat Cards page to learn more.  And, if you order by 12/14, you can pretty much bet they’ll get to you before Christmas.

Here’s an example of one in the “Hang in There” collection (caption: “You mean it was all just one big Ponzi scheme?”):

Time for the Beaver (or Hunter) Moon!

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, October’s full moon was named because it was the time of year for hunters to set their traps (including beaver traps) before water froze, and to gather as much food as they could before the winter season hit.   Max and Phoebe like to celebrate the “Beaver” or “Hunter’s” Moon every year 🙂

New Tarpon Painting “Payoff”

It’s always great when I have a chance to work on a painting for a friend who has a special connection to something.  In this case, it was my friend who had an epic day of Tarpon fishing (and I just happened to be fishing with him that day).  He got a great shot of the leaping fish on his GoPro, and asked me to re-create it so he could look at it any time he wanted to in his living room.

Using a unique size/shape canvas, it was especially fun to work on it.  When this beauty was finished, my wife and I sat back and tried to come up with a title.  We had a long list, but kept coming back to “Payoff” — we decided that, after all the hard work, dedication, hope, financial investment and time spent, it seemed only fitting that this painting be given that title.  I almost hated to deliver it to my friend because I was enjoying it so much in my studio!  But he was pretty darn happy when he saw it, and that’s just great.

Prints will be available soon!

Special Mermaid for Florida Winefest & Auction

Over the summer, when the folks at Florida Winefest & Auction asked me to create a special image to showcase their 2016 events, I immediately thought of a mermaid in a wine glass.  The idea was good, but pulling it off was a little daunting, and it took me a few tries before I finally got her the way I wanted her.  When finished, I knew she was the perfect image for this special organization that supports many charities throughout Sarasota & Manatee counties in Florida.  She’s titled “Perfectly Paired” and she’s a beauty!  I unveiled the painting live on the Suncoast View TV show so check it out – it was fun!

Over the next many months you’ll see her on marketing materials advertising Winefest events.  Plus, the original painting will be auctioned off at the Grand Tasting event on March 19, 2016.  I’ll offer prints and wood signs after the big events.  Please check out Florida Winefest & Auction for information and ticket details.

Cats & Wine

I’ve been working with the folks at Florida Winefest to design their marketing materials for the 2016 season.  How fitting that Max and Phoebe have been having fun checking out the wine barrel in our backyard while I’ve been working on this project.  Those cats get into everything!

Let’s Celebrate Pie

Max and Phoebe love it when Nicole bakes a pie.  They hang out with her in the kitchen to keep her company, but they really don’t know what to do with it when it comes out of the oven!
