This matted and framed digital print is on matte-finish letter-size acid-free 80 lb. digital paper signed by the artist. The original daily sketch was done in pastel on drawing paper, signed and dated 4/17/12.

SKETCH, MATTED AND FRAMED
This print is matted with 1-1/2" acid-free forest green suede top mat and 1/4" acid-free gold foil black core bottom mat, and framed in a 1-1/2" 8" x 10" wood frame which I finished in a gold tone to coordinate with the warm colors in the sketch. The backing is acid-free foam core and the glass is premium clear glass. All framing is done by me in my studio.

Full-size unframed digital prints are also available.

ABOUT THE ART
Because I always hope she feels the warmth of love.

I hadn’t set out to do quite this, but this was what resulted from a lovely ideal of Kelly sleeping quietly in the sun as she was so enjoying the sun on that cabinet, and I was so enjoying her.

This is done in my old friend, pastel, or chalk pastel to differentiate from my new friend oil pastel (read this article to understand the difference between and how they are made). Normally my “native” medium, I’ve been wandering away from it lately just to get a break and experience other media. This is the joy of daily sketches for me, that little exploration. Now I am eager to get back to my friends, my pastels.

DAILY SKETCHES

I endeavor to do at least a small sketch each day as a warm-up to my aesthetic senses, so I have a small pouch of art materials and a few various sized sketchbooks available in the house and out. Usually, these are done in pencil, my first and favorite medium, though sometimes it's charcoal, ink, colored pencil, ink and brush, whatever strikes my fancy at the moment, the greatest challenge to keep it quick and not get caught up in details, let the idea flow onto the paper.

Most often, the subjects are my cats because they are such willing models, though sometimes I'll also wander afield, literally, and sketch in my yard or anywhere I go for errands. Medium and especially style vary just so I get a chance to do something new.

Every once in a while, they are meant for framing, and I've designed a series of notecards, notepaper and notepads using other daily sketches (see my notecards section). Often I use them as illustrations for graphics projects I'm designing.
