Here’s several more paintings I’ve been asked to paint recently.

I love this guy’s little half smile.



I find it difficult to juxtapose enough highlights to make a dark color seem full of life, but look, I did it!



It’s hard to go wrong with bunnies. Bunnies are just so sweet.

This was a special request. The background in the reference photo was set up just right, so I included it. Sometimes I find too much background competes with the portrait, and try to  balance that out with a plain background so the pet can shine. This one worked out great, though.

Here are several paintings from January.

This beautiful girl passed away, and is a present for the owner. I hope she likes it.



This is a gift, too. I think I’ve painted only a handful of King Charles Spaniels.



This one I started out with gray/brown in mind, and then it went the other way. Completely, wildly, the other way.



And a sweet little guy. Those eyes just get you.

cattledog11x14This guy looks like a cattle dog mixed with something else. Not sure what. But didn’t he turn out looking great?

We’ve been having snow and ice since Christmas. It’s just going on and on. Everyone says it’s the worst winter in 20 years. I hope you all out there are having a better time of it.

I need to show off these two paintings, just to give my pinterest board somewhere to pull from. Do you want to see everything I’ve painted this year? Please visit my 2016 board!

This lovely scene is from a customer’s photo. I painted it faithfully, will my own style added. I just love it.



This pretty girl has passed away, and deserved to be memorialized. She’s the best bichon I’ve painted yet!

Is your summer action packed, too?  We’re getting in plenty of swimming!

We had crazy weather yesterday, how about you? Crazy, wild wind. I saw a bent over flag pole. How does that even happen? I mean a 30-foot aluminum flagpole. How could it even catch enough wind to get bent? I’m just glad we didn’t have any damage done around home. I know areas were without power.

I haven’t been keeping up with my blog posts–boy, just busy.

This lab is 10″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. He has quite the intense look, doesn’t he?


A mix of bright colors make this pygmy goat fun. She’s 10″x10, too. SOLD, thank you!


And someone told me I need more horse groupings, because horses get lonely. Which is sort of cute. So I painted a group. 11″x14″, oil on stretched canvas. SOLD, thank you!


We were supposed to be having more wind tonight, and 80% chance of rain, but it’s silent out. Which means the cold is descending and here comes winter. Sigh.
