Red Jeep

Oil Painting Car Art Antique Sport Utility Vehicle

Oil on canvas, 9" x 7".

A friend's husband acquired an older Jeep to work on for fun and I wanted to paint it when I spied it in her driveway.  It's strange for me to have a compulsion to paint a vehicle!

Seashell Pair

Oil Painting Still Life Mollusk Nautical Seaside Beach Ocean Sand

Watercolor on Arches watercolor paper, 5.5" x 7.5".

Merry Christmas!  Seashells, sand and the ocean are welcome images for many people in the winter season.  I painted some shells of my own and imagined the part about the sand, sea and sun.  I could get lost in admiring their form and details.  I hope that the watercolors captured their sense of wonder!

Mini Schnauzer

Oil Painting Pet Portrait Animal Commission Art Dog

Watercolor on Arches watercolor paper, 11" x 9".

Schnauzer are amazing dogs to paint, especially in watercolor I believe.  In this medium I can showcase their characteristic "haircuts".   This girl's eye shines from beneath her bushy eyebrow and her profile is so attractive.  I'm very happy that I could finish this particular commissioned portrait before Christmas.

Christmas Puppy

Oil Painting Pet Portrait Animal Art Golden Retriever Puppy

Oil on hardboard, 6" x 8".

Puppies are sometimes the cutest when they're a little tired and starry-eyed I think.  This young Golden Retriever puppy looks tuckered out but happy.  Maybe she's trying to stay awake and not miss any fun.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!

Westie Takes a Break

Oil Painting Pet Dog Art Portrait West Highland Terrier


Oil on canvas panel, 8" x 6".

Christmas Sale! This cute Westie is taking a short break but will be ready for more play and action soon. She just needs to catch her breath! She probably does a lot of sliding on the wood floors also when chasing a favorite toy.  The painting would make a nice gift for someone who is owned by a Westie.  If you'd like to commission a painting please contact me.

Christmas Wreath Welcome

Oil Painting Still Life Art Red Door Home Holiday Decorations Architecture

Oil on stretched canvas, 10" x 8".
The 3/4" sides are painted making it ready to hang without frame if desired.

I had some fun with a decorated red door.  The different shades of red/orange for the lighted and shaded areas of the door were luscious to paint and interesting to discover.  Wanting to keep it simple, I felt free to just imply the wreath and ribbon.  The light was most important!  Puts me in the Christmas spirit too.
