A friend commissioned me to paint Buck for her brother's family.  The family recently lost Buck to cancer.  He was a beautiful and much loved dog and I hope the painting brings back some good memories for the family. This is painted on an 8 x 10 x 2" canvas.

that's amore

I have always wanted to paint a highland cow and a patron from England gave me the perfect photo to work from.  He and his girlfriend took this picture in Scotland last summer and he surprised her with the painting for Christmas.  I feel so honored to be a part of bringing others happy moments.
I felt like I was peeking in a cows bedroom the whole time I painted this.  It would be the perfect cover for a cow romance novel.  This is painted on an 11 x 14 x 2" canvas.

Hope you all had a merry Christmas.  I did and have enjoyed spending lots of time with family. I am anxious to get back to painting.

cumberland island

A friend commissioned me to do this for her "man" friend.  They spent a fun time at Cumberland Island last year and she wanted me to try and capture some of it's beauty.  I have always admired the shapes and colors in marshes and this gave me a great opportunity to paint a scene.  This was painted on an 11 x 14" linen panel.

A friend commissioned me to paint Sonny for her daughter's Christmas present.  This much loved dog was named after the owner's beloved grandfather. So fun to paint such a beautiful animal and make someone happy with the result.  I would like to have a pet named after me one day.  I don't think I have ever heard of a pet named Carol.??   This is painted on an 8 x 10 x 2" canvas.

I have been very busy painting but have not been able to post because they are Christmas surprises.  I took a little time to do this 4 x 12 x 2" calf.  This format is really fun to work with.  
The Mt Brook Holiday show is ongoing until December 19th.  See the card from my previous post for the details.
