Who names a cat Josh?  Cats needs two syllable names.  It is true that in the South one syllable names can easily be turned into two syllables. Jah..ush!  Jah...ush belongs to my good friend's daughter who lives in Boston.  He is named after Josh from the show "West Wing". This was commissioned by my friend as a 30th birthday gift for her daughter.  Josh was thought to be a feral cat and in Boston they neuter cats and clip their ears to indicate that the procedure has been done.  Josh was discovered not to have been feral and lives a cushy life in Boston with Kendal.  Happy birthday to Kendal and happy life to Jah...ush.

PS....I don't paint cats.  Don't ask.

sweet baby james

I have a friend who wanted me to paint her three baby chicks.  Painting chicks and listening to James Taylor is a good way to celebrate a Monday. Painted on a 6 x 6 " canvas.

I know I am all over the place with my work lately but I just paint what I love and that is lots of different things.  I am very conflicted about it but it comes down to making myself happy.  So if it looks pretty scattered.... so be it! This is painted on a 24 x 36" canvas.

running on empty

My son, Clint, told me I needed to do some more umbrella pictures.  This is a diptych.  The total piece is 30 x 30".  Each individual is 15 x 30".  Well duh.....     I'm just having one of those days.
I hope you are not having one of "those days".  Have a great weekend!

 I decided to paint a warm picture today.  I am participating in a one day show at Watercolor Beach Resort , FL March 17.  I have missed painting beach scenes.  I included a second picture so that you could see the scale of this one.  It is a 36 x 36 x 2".
