There is no commission I like better than a good purr or pooch face. Here is my work from this past week. Thank you to the client and all who advertise my art – I appreciate you!

Flat Rock Falls… complete!

I had a great day today with just enough painting time to finish up this piece. Would you believe it, it’s the last day of my twenties today!

It was a great day that I finished up by attending my community’s book club (the author was present!) followed by two hours with my tennis club. The rest of the day was spent studying for my Spanish 101 exam tomorrow – yeeeah! I love it.

Wouldn’t you like to be Elsewhere?

Here is a postcard I made recently to accompany a residency application to Elsewhere in Greensboro, NC. Check it out, it looks like a fabulous place. Oh, and wish me luck!

Here is the front of my postcard:

New Work!

I haven’t posted in a while but there are plenty of new works (and some old ones too) posted on my website! Go check it out. I’ve added some new galleries as well as some new works to some of the existing galleries.

Below is a snapshot of my new “Commissions” gallery on my website.

I do many pet portraits, house and property portraits and any other sentimental still life or landscapes you can think of. The majority of the commissions I do are for friends or family of the purchaser. They make great thoughtful gifts.

Not a bird but…

I don’t have a bird painting for you today, but I didn’t think you’d be upset because I have a sketch of a chihuahua in a car. It’s just rough but really, how could that possibly disappoint, right? Right. Chihuahua… heh.

Birthday Pets

Portraits of adorable Findley, Okie and Box were recently commissioned for a birthday present. They were such a pleasure to draw, I can just imagine walking and cuddling with them!
