Mother’s Day Coloring card

I designed this coloring card for all ages. You don’t have to be a kid to make a card for your mommy. It will be a work of art by you that she will want to hang on the fridge.

Mother’s Day Coloring Card

Color it in with markers, crayons or colored pencils. The printed image is adhered to thick card stock so even your juiciest markers wont bleed through. I left the card blank inside, so you can write happy mother’s day in your own handwriting.

About the cards

My card images are professionally printed at a local printer and then I cut and adhere them to thick card stock creating a 5″ x 7″ card. The image is slightly smaller than 5×7″ and there is usually a thin white border around the edge. I add another piece of card stock to the inside as a liner, so that the card is extra thick and sturdy and there will be no bleed through if you use markers to sign your card. Comes with a white envelope.


Customization is never an extra charge. So if you are pressed for time, I will hand write your message and the envelope and use your return address and I will send your card to your recipient. It will be as though it came directly from you.

Cards shown: Cat Beach Sunset 2
Golden Retriever
Bee Gee’s

Easy for you

If time is on your side, I will send the card to you. You can still have me write an occasion like “Happy Anniversary” or “Thinking of you” inside in colorful bold letters, there is a drop down menu on the order page to give you some ideas for a greeting. You may choose one of those, or tell me your own message or leave it blank.

Square Cards

Cards shown:
Sun spots
Rough sea

I started making these square cards , because certain paintings need to be formatted as a square. I think they are really nice and different. The card is 5 ½” x 5 ½” and the envelope is 6″x 6″.

Card Sets

Cat Greeting Card Set

I currently have two sets;

I offer smaller cards in sets of four. The card size is 5½ ” X 4¼ ” they are blank inside (sets are not customizable). Each comes with a white envelope. I use color card stock on these smaller cards. The inner lining is a light color so your writing will be easy to read.

Paintings of Cats on Fences

Today I am sharing a collection of paintings that I have done featuring cats sitting on fences. The originals sell fast and I am busy painting more that are very similar to these. I also have some ideas to create scenes with cats on stairs, cats in a boat and cats in a row eating dinner. My ideas come faster than I can paint, so it’s a good thing I can offer prints.

All of these images are for sale in my Etsy shop as poster prints in two sizes- 8″x10″ and 11″x14″. You can also get them on 5″x7″ cards.

They are also available on a wide selection of home decor and gift items in my Society6 shop. I have placed some links below, but if you need help finding something specific, feel free to contact me.

Rough Sea Painting

I love everything about the ocean, the beautiful soothing blue colors, the smell of the salt air, the sound of sea gulls squawking and waves crashing onto the shore. That’s why I enjoy painting it so much. I get to play with those lovely blue paint colors, mixing and swirling them together, getting lost into the scene as I work on the foam and the sea spray.

Rough Sea Acrylic Painting on Wood

This painting was satisfying from start to finish! I was really in the zone when I painted this. I finished in two and a half hours! Amazing! So many times when I get inspired to paint something, I don’t finish right away and then it can take days or weeks to get back to it.

Rough Sea by gretzky

The original painting is on a 12″ wide x 12″ high wood surface painted with acrylic. The sides are 3/4″ and painted. No need for a frame. Ready to hang. Wire hanger on back. If you hurry you can purchase the original on Etsy.

Rough Sea Original Painting Available on Etsy

I only wish it was bigger. But the cool thing is that I uploaded it to Society6 and Red Bubble and it can be printed on huge wall art like tapestries and canvases. I really like it on the wood wall art pictured below:

Wood Wall Art Society6

The fabric wall hanging comes in two sizes (small pictured below). It is made of polyester yarn and includes a wooden dowel and cotton yarn for hanging.

Cryptogram Drawing

Cryptogram Drawing

I did this one using a pen tool and a tablet and then added digital effects and turned it into a repeating pattern. I like the soothing blue and green color combo. I named it ‘Cryptogram’ because it looks like there could be some secret meaning in between the intricate winding maze of shapes and symbols.

Cryptogram Wall Hanging

Here’s how the Cryptogram design looks on furniture, wall hangings, and pillows.

Cryptogram Drawing on Furniture

Tribal Fish Drawing
Tribal Fish Drawing

Tribal Fish drawing was also done on a tablet. I did not add any effects. Directly in the center, there appears to be a fish shape. This was not intended when I created it. If you look at it for a while you will see all sorts of interesting shapes which may represent different things to each viewer. I do this with many of my abstracts. I also see a cup of coffee in this one.

Blue diamonds is another doodle drawing that I manipulated on the computer to create a continual pattern. After I named it “Blue” Diamonds, I noticed that it looks more purple when viewed on my phone.

This purpley-blue design is on a wide variety of phone cases and skins. Also on laptop & ipad skins and two sizes of laptop sleeves

Abstract Art Drawing

Abstract Art Drawing

I drew this piece the old fashioned way, with magic markers and thick paper. It has a kind of a retro feel to it, maybe sixties or seventies.

Here is a cool item on Society6; a wall mural! All of my designs are available on these, they are printed on self-adhesive woven polyester fabric panels, easy to stick on and off. You can change a blah wall into a colorful focal point with no big commitment.

Valentine Painted Abstract

Valentine Painted Abstract

The original of this acrylic painting on canvas is hanging in my living room and the background is predominately blue and green. I completely changed the colors in Photoshop to make a Valentine’s Day Post.

It’s got many layers of shapes, dots, swirls, etc. It’s the kind of thing that you can look at and always find something new.
