This painting was done from a photo of my beloved Luna. She has been gone for about a year now. She was the sweetest dog and I miss her every day.

I really would like to try painting birds and other small creatures. I was fairly pleased with my first attempt at them and hope to loosen my style a little more.

It's for sale on ebay for 3 days for $80 starting bid. I plan on opening an etsy store and may start to move some paintings over there. 18x24 Oil on Canvas

Update notifications and comments

I'm surprised that there doesn't seem to be a function where blog readers can request email notifications of blog updates. Am I wrong? If so, let me know. Anyway, I can add up to 10 email addresses on my end to receive notification via email when I post a new blog. If you are interested in being one of these 10, drop me a line.

Also, I changed the preference that requires a blog reader to have a google account to leave comments. Personally, I wouldn't want to sign up for a new account everytime something caught my attention on the web. There are already too many usernames and passwords to manage in life and there is little risk of trolls here.

I look forward to hearing from you.

The Dog Show at Green Rice Gallery

I have been busy preparing for The Dog Show at Green Rice Gallery in the NoDa arts district, here in Charlotte, NC. It's exciting and challenging. It's a show of about ten artists, from Charlotte and beyond, exhibiting their pet portraits.

Here are a couple of my paintings that will be on display. I will have nine paintings in the show.

This is a link to an early press release on the NoDa website: The Dog Show

Thanks to Angela Goodman, Carla Garrison, and gallery owner Allison Wolf Hertzler for organizing the show.

This is a painting done from one of my sister's many photos that she sends me. This is Emmy, a bit after she had had a litter of pups. She's a super sweet dog and this was fun to paint.

I Only Have Eyes For You

Sweet memories are all we have. Sometimes they are enough.

I am going to be represented in Charlotte, NC by Meow and Fetch. I am very excited about this new venture. There will be 8 paintings for sale starting at this boutique. This is one of my favorites. Love that smug Pug expression.

I am really pleased with the way this one turned out. Labs are hands down my favorite dog to paint. I imagine living with them for most of my adult life has something to do with it :) This painting is on ebay.
