Here Kitty Kitty Kitty...

"Black Cat Print Set"
Four 6x6 Giclee Prints by Kerry Beary
What's up Pussycat? Wooahooahaooahoooh
Why black cats? Why not. I love the graphic nature of these cool cats. I have always been drawn to black cats and I started drawing them back in high school. Once I began working as an artist full time, I combined my love for kitties with my other passion... mid-century modern design! These are a small portion of my pussy portfolio: Take a look at all of my kitties on my website: or my shop: I also love working with cat charities like N.O.A.H and Sacred Cat who rescue cats, foster them, spay & neuter and find permanent homes for the thousands of homeless, abused, and neglected cats.

What about your cats? Please share your black (or any color) cats with me here! I would also love to hear about your rescue stories!

I love Garage Sales!

"Red Head" by Kerry Beary
2x3" Gouache on Illustration Board
I love yard sales! I get up early every day... but I try to get up a bit earlier on the weekends to catch the worm! I have been buying other peoples crap for years... and I always find the most amazing things. Especially at the estates or sales held by the family of the deceased! They can't wait to get rid of their parents stuff and make BANK! I will show off many of my fabulous finds here on my blog, but you also see many of my recent aquisitions on my FLICKR -
These little paintings were inspired by a recent find. I stumbled upon a box of old plaster and gesso frames for 25 cents a piece. My brother (who rocks) gave me an awesome set of Holbein Goauche for Christmas and I am finally getting around to playing with them!

Wow! Twice in one week!

"Dachshund" 4 x 8 acrylic on wood

Yes folks... I have outdone myself! Two posts in one week. I doubt I can keep up this momentum... but I will try!

Here is "Dachshund". I found some old wooden plaques at a garage sale last weekend and the shape of this one inspired my weenie illustration.

If you don't already know... I LOVE weenie dogs. I have three (and a Corgi who thinks she's a weenie) and it all started years ago when my friend Mary Ann introduced me to her boy Dutch. He was the sweetest, funniest, most awesomest dog... so I had to get one, two, three... of my own and they are the loves of my life (besides my husband of course). She and her husband also had a Saint Bernard at the same time! I wish I had a picture!

So I will post my dachshunds from past and present here and there.

And here is Lucy! She is my first and best! She is 10 years old and as fiesty as ever!

9 pounds of pure attitude!

A year has gone by....

"Kitchen Utensils" 5x7 Giclee on Premium Watercolor Paper

... since I established this silly blog and I have yet to add any content. I decided that it's time to get with the program a POST SOMETHING!!! So here is my first official post and hopefully the beginning of a daily (ok let's get real) or bi-weekly contribution to my bla bla blog! I welcome any and all comments, but please be gentle, as I am quite fragile!

So, I will begin with this group of 5 x 7 giclee prints that I put out a few months ago. They are quite popular, especially here in Baton Rouge! I offer the design in four colors to compliment any kitchen decor! The original image is from an old cookbook from the early 1950's. (I sound like a frickin' commercial)! They are available at
