My most recent pet portrait – this is Bob (short for Big ‘Ol Boy), a Mastiff. Bob is really big, and such a sweetheart. I love this perspective, with most of him hidden behind his big head! A visitor to the Ashland Art Center during November’s First Friday suggested the title “It Wasn’t Me” – which is just perfect for this one!Share on Facebook
Two of my animal paintings – “Got Mice?” and “You Looking at Me?” were noted as Meritorious Entries for this year’s Richeson 75 animal art competition! They will appear in the hard-cover book for the show.Share on Facebook
I was so pleased to get the announcement that “Got Mice?” won an award at the Irving Arts Wildlife Show in Texas this weekend! This painting placed second in the oil & acrylic category. I need to paint more of these fun, narrow facial portraits!Share on Facebook
“Cats Sayings: Wit and Wisdom from the Whiskered Ones” – My Painting “Lisa Laughs” is Featured in This Fun New Book!September 11th, 2012 | Posted by in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)
Five of my Sanctuary One animal paintings are featured at the downtown Ashland Starbucks through the end of October. Today, “Ferdinand” replaced “Peeking Pekin”, which sold over the weekend! I will soon be happily writing a check to Sanctuary One, as 10% of my sales from these paintings and associated prints/cards is donated to help them with animal care and rescue.
Pleased to have received a Special Recognition Artist designation in the 2012 Light Space Time International Animal Art Competition! Sam Dolman’s pig painting won the top prize – crazy detail on his fabulous painting!

My newest painting “Cream”; she is a former blood donor cow from a veterinary school. She retired at Sanctuary One with her friend Cookies, and is also available for adoption. With her white coat, I just had to paint her with a fun & colorful polka dot background – I think it suits her!Share on Facebook
A few photos taken by my niece, Myla, during the First Friday Art Walk in Ashland. The exhibit of my Sanctuary One paintings are up until the end of the month, so if you are local and haven’t seen them, please pop by!
