18"x24" oil on canvas

Another painting of of my buddy Bug, only on a larger canvas. He's a very sociable cat that thinks he's a dog. He keeps me company and a lot of the times lives by his name, a bug! I did a 6x8 a couple of years ago as well. I have one more of him that I've been working on as well. I think three of Bug might be enough?? Or maybe not.

Revise to "A Key to it All"

In this photo, the angle shows the actual OLD, VERY OLD, nail that I incorporated into this painting.
8"x10" oil on panel - REVISED

I had a different background on this key and I wasn't loving it. So, I made it hang on old barn wood. It looks 10x better. I've had many paintings that I've just changed the background and it makes ALL the difference. It's just paint and can be painted over!!

"Catching Air"

15"x30" oil on canvas

This is a Short-eared Owl. I've been working on this one on and off. Infact, I finished the face first. I think I was intimidated by his wings. The blending of the background was challenging, but very rewarding when completed.
