11"x14" oil on canvas NFS

This is my niece Shannon's horse Zephyr. I took a bunch of pictures when we went to her barn during our visit Thanksgiving week. She had her fuzzy winter coat on. I'm giving this to her for her birthday.

8"x8" oil on gallery wrapped canvas SOLD

This is my girlfriend Kitty's kitty. She's has wonderful markings and lots of whiskers. Those were the most fun to paint. And as you can see she has a lot of attitude.

"Surprise Pond"

12"x16" oil on canvas

This is from a photo I took while on vacation this summer in the Adirondacks. I actually got in a canoe with my husband to get close ups of the lily pads and flowers. Artists can go to many extremes to get a great shot for a painting. These pads after a while drove me crazy. I had to take a lot of breaks. They remind me of Pacman, only green. Not painting anything soon that's green.

"Who Needs A Rake?"

8"x8" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This is Malcolm. Another animal first. He is yet another barn yard friend of my friend Lisa. She told me that goats are great leaf eaters. They're like potato chips to them. I think my parents could use a couple of goats as they are constantly raking leaves in the fall. He was fun to paint and the photo I had really didn't have a leaf in his mouth, but after hearing the story I added it. I think it gave him character.
