New Cat and Dog Artwork with New Pens!

I have been in a drawing mood the last few days. I sold several pieces of artwork in the last week and wanted to replenish. I sold my all time absolute favorite kitty painting to a cat lover which made me happy! I almost pulled it many times, but now I am glad it has a good home. 

Full Tummy 4" x 6" Watercolor 

I have used the IDenti-Pen and Ultra Fine Sharpie for most of my art.

But I wanted something finer, so bought these two new Micron pens last Saturday. 

You can see the difference in these pictures.

The series, Cat and Spider, was done with the IDenti-Pen and watercolor pencils. 


To Eat or Not To Eat

Uh Oh!


This was my first ink drawing with the new pens. It was going to be completely in  brown, but I didn't like it so added the black for definition and shading. And I used blue ink for the kitty's eyes. 

In a Punk

This one was going to be another complete ink drawing but looked too plain, so I used watercolor pencils, too.

Morning Visitor

I sold both of my Greyhound art pieces in my Dogbarks shop, so added this yesterday. It is a combination of the Micron pen and watercolor pencils. 

Is This What They Call A Couch Potato?

These are all ACEOs, or trading cards, 3.5" x 2.5" and are available in my shops. Just click the photos! 

I have yet to make any prints of my work. Everything is an original, signed and dated on the back. Sometimes I think I should offer them for those who want art for less money. The original ACEOs are $8-$10. Any suggestions? 


  1. I like the Halloween kitty, sitting inside the pumpkin! You've got a fun style :D

  2. So much fun, Patty.
    Love the latest dog one !

  3. I don't have any knowledgeable suggestion about how you should offer them, but I do like the look of the ones with the new pens! Very nice!

  4. I love the look of these. I am hard pressed to say which is my favorite, but the kitty in the pumpkin is right up there, along with the "to eat or not to eat" and the couch potato one. Lovely!

    Prints would always be nice so that more people can enjoy your art, , though the originals aren't so highly priced that they're inaccessible.

  5. very good blog post. its interesting to see the effect of the different pens. Adding prints to your shop may add another venue for your artwork. you could make print aceos and cards. a lot of artists seem to make the cards to supplement their artwork. but then again you would lose the focus of these all being OOAK. hmmm, hard decision actually. Sorry, I'm no real help :(

  6. recently discovered your blog, and love your cat&dog art!
    As a cat-mom, and artist, I really feel so happy to meet another cat&dog inspired artists all over the world!
    cheers from Istanbul!

  7. Thank you all so much! I really am not sure what I will do about prints. There is something special about OOAK art knowing you are the only who possesses it.

  8. I love these. I am a little jealous. I seem to have lost all my creativity.
