first anniversary

I painted this beautiful pooch for a young man who is surprising his wife for their first anniversary. I fell in love with this dog's eyes.  Such a pleasure to paint.  And....for all of you out there who would love to have your pet is a good time for me.  Do your Christmas shopping early!
This is painted on an 8 x 10" canvas.  I paint this size for $275. A forever gift!

no funny business

Fun color play.  I think one reason white cows are a favorite subject is that I love all the shadow colors. This is painted on an 8 x 8 x 2" canvas.  Hope you all have a good week with lots of "funny business"

One of my favorite things about June is that the hydrangeas are in full bloom.  They are such beautiful flowers.  This painting was commissioned by a friend who shares my sentiment. It is painted on an 11 x 14" canvas.

My July workshop is at capacity now but please email me if you would like to be put on the wait list or might be interested in doing one in late September.

Sunny Monday

I have been out of the studio for many days.  I really enjoyed my time away and was kind of lazy getting back to it. I think it made me take time to remember what is important to the process.  This is painted on a 24 x 30" linen canvas.

Spots are filling up for my July 12 and 13 workshop.  I would love to have you join us.  We will concentrate on still life one day and animals the next.  Most importantly we will be discussing colors, brushwork, and composition both days.  I limit the classes to nine so you will get a good bit of one on one instruction.  The workshop is at my home studio in Birmingham, AL and includes lunch both days.  Email me at
