"The Magic of Merlin"

8"x8" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

Another first for me! I painted this gorgeous rabbit who I've been told was a ginormous bunny. I didn't get the pleasure to know him personally, but I feel I felt his spirit while painting him. He unfortunately didn't make the heat over this past summer back east.

"Sprinkled with Sugar"

8"x8" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This is Sugar. She's my cousin's cousin, Lisa's barn cat. She took a wonderful photo of her that I just had to paint. I loved her expression. I'm extremely happy with the finished painting. Love all the color! Did I forget a color?

"Miss Ruby"

8"x10" oil on canvas

Another kitter I just finished painting. Ruby is a sweet and friendly cat I befriended at my girlfriends while visiting in October. I was missing my own cat and she kept me company. She posed perfectly for a candid shot.

8"x8" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I have a few "putty tats" I've been painting. This is the first one of three (at the moment). This one is for my cousin, Tim and his wife Kelly. T-Bear was my cousins favorite kitty and it was a pleasure to paint him for them. Tim will be seeing this for the first time here on my blog as Kelly and I have been working together behind the scenes to get him painted. So much for a Christmas gift, lol! Thanks Kelly!! love you both!!

"Big Tomato"

5"x5" gallery wrapped canvas

This is a painting I did of a girlfriend's tomato she grew in her garden. It was a whopping 1 1/4 lbs., that's huge! It was fun to paint as it was a colorful fellow, nothing like a home grown tomato.
