We are back online after a long disappearance and we have more cats in clothes! Max Bailey has been hard at work on a new line of anthropomorphic kitty cat paintings which we are turning into art prints. They are based on Max’s art doll characters. We have more original one-of-a-kind art dolls to post too. These are the first two prints we have, and they are available in our Ruffing’s Etsy art shop.
The first is Alice the White Cat. Alice’s little doll was especially made just for her by her favorite aunt. Alice calls her “Angela”. In a soft voice, Alice tells Angela all her secrets, and shares with her all her kitty dreams. Alice is very sweet and always cheerful, and she thinks her life is really quite nice. She’s glad to have Angela to share it with.
The next is Louisa the Himalayan cat. Louisa walks to the library at least once a week to get a new book to read. She’s read almost all of the novels in the library, and especially loves the classics. Louisa wants to be an author when she grows up. She feels there are too many stories about people, and not enough about kitties.
Both prints are 8 x 10 inch images on 8 x 10 inch paper. They were created from Max’s original acrylic paintings, reproduced using archival-quality pigment-based Epson UltraChrome ink and heavyweight 100% cotton archival-quality, acid-free, 300gsm weight fine art paper with a matte finish. Each one comes in an acid-free clear cello sleeve with an acid-free backing board, and is all ready to put in a standard size frame (frame not included).

For me, nothing typifies winter more than the sight of a Black-capped Chickadee perched on a snowy branch. I’ve given this alert and sprightly bird a background of soft wintry colors with just a suggestion of trees against the sky.
“Carolina Chickadee and Eastern Red Cedar” is an original watercolor painting. I am making a limited number of reproductions of this image as a signed giclée print as well, which may be ordered by emailing us or by using the PayPal button below, for the 8 1/2 by 11 print. Larger prints are special order. Please see ordering for more information.
I’ve taken my Art Nouveau, William Morris-inspired floral prints and combined a few of them in print sets. You can find them in our Ruffing’s Etsy Shop. These are “Lavender-blue Iris on Green” and “Cream and Purple Iris on Green” were painted as a set of two.
“Yellow and White Iris on Blue” and “Valentine”, the above two iris prints, were created as a set.
“Tan and Purple Iris on Green” and “Lavender Iris on Green” were created as a set of two, These are also look nice with “Innocence”, white roses on green, below, as a set of three.
The sweet little elf above is dreaming of Christmas, while his chickadee friends keep him company. A big yellow moon is coming up in the night sky behind him. It is called “A Christmas Dream“.
In “Final Touches“, Santa’s helpers are very busy putting the finishing touches on a Christmas ornament. Only the most artistic mice get to be Santa’s helpers!
