Shiraz and Beaujoulais

Two paintings of two siblings. Acrylic on canvas. These were done as a fundraiser for MEOW Cat Rescue, a local non-profit that finds homes for countless numbers of felines. We adopted one of our little cuties, Crystal, from there and I have family and friends who volunteer there too. I am grateful for all the folks who give their time and compassions for helping our animal friends.

Looking for a special gift for someone?

How about a portrait of a beloved animal companion? There is still time before Christmas to commission a pet portrait from me. I can work from 5-6 good photos and 10% of the proceeds go to an animal rescue organization of your choice. If you are interested, let me know. Happy holidays!

Terrier cuteness

Two new miniature portraits in acrylic. My iPad camera adds more saturation and blue tones, so the paintings are actually more toned down. But you get the idea. I need to figure out how to correct that color correcting issue. Anyone else have that challenge?

Hello again

I'm glad to say my art studio is now back in place after a couple of months hiatus with installing new floors. Life is starting to slow down a bit after all the demolition work, birthday celebrations, trips, school stuff, and whatnot. It feels good to have paint brush in hand again and I have four pet portraits to do over the next couple of weeks! So off I go to get my painting butt in gear!
