Slightly inspired by Purple Cow poem, but mostly created because cows are awesome and I love the color purple. Moo.

Also: you can find this piece and other artwork on Society6.

Blues Cat

Blues Cat by Karen Gadient, 2014

Blues Cat. Cat in a cool mood.

I’ve been surrounded by cats since I shared a playpen with one and I couldn’t imagine my house without a cat or two. One of my favorite childhood poems:

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody’s lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don’t care! Cats sleep anywhere.
― Eleanor Farjeon

Cosmic Calligraphy

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a new symmetrical artwork. I really enjoy doing them, but they take more planning. Like puzzles and art together! But I love doing puzzles, especially ones where the cats can’t run off with the pieces.

In the afternoon, over gold screens,
I will brush the blue dust of my dreams.
— John Gould Fletcher, Irradiations; Sand and Spray


If you’re interested: I have a limited time promotion on a 16″ x 20″ stretched canvas print of ‘Violaceous Blues’ for $89 (usually $137). Ends tomorrow!

Dreams of Color

Dreams of Color by Karen Gadient, 2014

Dreams of Color. Created with Procreate for iPad and Corel Painter.

When I can’t sleep, I doodle on the iPad. And doodling, when you’re having a sleepless night, turns into a dreamlike activity.

After some rest, I brought the doodle onto the big screen and expanded upon it: creating this artwork. I guess if you have a box of crayons (digital or otherwise), insomnia can be as colorful as a dream.

Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons. — Al Hirschfeld
