Nutty Little Bedtime Paintings

At night before I  begin to sleep or tolerate insomnia I usually draw our cat or something from my imagination. Lately I've been using these spontaneous sketches for inspiration in the studio. I have a small 4" x 6" watercolor pad and some gouache paints which I use to give the pencil lines a life in color. The range of images  is wide but some of my favorite pieces are cartoony mechanical characters.

But of course I have to include at least one painting of our cat Mistinguett.
