Zoe - acrylic on canvas


This is a beautiful dog who lived next door to me. We miss her. Hopefully this painting will bring good memories for her family.

Our family of cats - acrylic on canvas 6 x 6

This series was a special Christmas gift to my husband, James. He is especially fond of the one of Crystal aka "Black Bean", which is his special kitty.

Cherry Blossom Stained Glass Window

This is a commissioned piece, that I created for a client,  that just went up this week! I have details of the piece while it was in my workshop and the picture of it installed in the home. The color from the house next door does influence the color in the glass. This was a challenge and pleasure to work on. The flower glass is a handmade glass that has layers of texture and color and the background glass is English muffle with a slight green tint and texture in the light. It looks a little more green than it is against the white board. 

The blue off the house next door really adds in a blue tint to the window...

Casey - 6 x 6 acrylic on canvas


One of the commissioned paintings I have been working on this past week. What a beautiful and sweet dog Casey must have been. I hope this will help be a joyful reminder to Casey's family.

Ode to Fowl - oil on canvas

I have been seeing lots of rooster & chicken paintings being posted on various blogs. I thought I'd include one I did awhile back. Most of the current material I'm working on are commissioned pieces I can't yet reveal on the site until after Christmas. Then I will share what I've been up to as of late. Happy Holidays!
