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
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!Share on Facebook
I’m the featured artist at the Ashland Art Center for the month of June, which includes a special exhibit of my Sanctuary One animal paintings. The painting I’ve posted here is of Sparky – he and his son, Junior, are available for adoption at the Sanctuary, and he was our “mascot ” for the 3rd Annual Bachelor Auction and Cinco de Mayo Celebration benefiting Sanctuary One this year! If you are in Ashland for First Friday (June 1), drop in, see the exhibit, and visit me in Studio 3 – I’m working on a new Sanctuary One painting of a cow, with polka dots in the background – I can’t seem to get away from those As always, there will be food, wine and live music – The Ashland Art Center was recently voted the best place to go for First Friday!Share on Facebook
