Hot red peppers tied together with raffia makes me think of great spicy foods and hot climates. I hang them around my house after a summer of growing these little red peppers that are dangerous to eat!

Papillon Watercolor Painting Dog Pet Art Portrait

"Only Pap"


Watercolor on paper, 11.25" x 10.25".

This is one of my older paintings of my Papillon, Nina. I've been busy with commissions and also taking an abstract painting class with Patricia Lappin here in Fort Smith. She is a motivating instructor and also a wonderful artist. If I paint something in her class that I think might actually be worthy of posting I will do it . . . . . . . well, maybe.

Norwegian White Cat Oil Painting Animal Pet Art Portrait

"White Cat"


Oil on stretched canvas, 14" x 11" .

This was a commissioned piece of a lovely white cat that is believed to be a Norwegian Forest cat. These cats have a very long history. Her profile was lit by a nearby window making long cast shadows. It was challenging and fun to paint her form with the gray/neutral background.
