Didn’t this turn out terrific? I can’t take all the credit, as the reference photo I worked from was spot-on with the composition and colors. I merely translated what was already there. Keeping the background indistinct was my challenge, as I tend to go over-literal. So pretty!
I didn’t save the name of the person who took the reference photo (bad Sandra), but it was a photo shared on Free Reference Photos for Artists. 12″x12″ oil on cradled wood board. Available in my Etsy shop. I love how the moment is very different from most crow images. From a photo shared byContinue reading “3 paintings: a crow, a horse, a pug”
A lovely remembrance of a dog who lived a full life. I hope the image reminds someone of very special days.
I had a day where I tried to paint expressively, with lots of colors. This happy little guy flowed right off my brush. 8″x8″ oil on cradled wood board. Available in my Etsy shop! SOLD, Thank you!

Happy Saturday! Time to catch up on all those household chores…or maybe take a walk? I guessContinue reading “painting: Great Dane”
What a cutie pie. I always say, there’s just not enough time to own all the dogs I want. I have to make-do vicariously.
These beautiful dogs turned out fabulous, didn’t they? These were painted as a commission, so are not available for sale. I just love showing off beautiful things. 🙂
These are someone’s special friends I was commissioned to paint. I wasn’t so happy with how the third painting turned out, so I tried again with the same dog sleeping. I think he has an odd expression, below. Dog’s have the same micro facial muscles as do humans, and emphasizing one of these tinyContinue reading “painting: ridgeback dogs”
These are 8″x8″ paintings, but even so small, there’s a lot of detail and they carry off portraiture very well. I think both have very strong results. These were commissioned items, so not for sale.
These lovely dogs were custom work, but I like to show off. Can’t go wrong with happy pets!
