Introducing my newest painting:
"Bad Dog."




Click here to go to the homepage.


This is a painting of my dog Violet who bravely guards our house day and night.  She sits with her head on the window sill and barks at most anyone who dares to walk by.  Though she has a particular disliking to the white dogs with puffy tails.  (I like to call them the puffers.)   I have also conveniently placed a "Warning Bad Dog" sign in the corner of the window just in case a snarling dog doesn't do the trick in keeping the bad guys away.  All the neighbors have nicknamed her "Bad Dog" and were a little scared when we first moved in.  But Violet doesn't mind.  She likes to keep people on their toes you know. She's cool like that. 

In other news, if you would like to commission a pet portrait for a Christmas gift, now would be a great time to get started!  Order now before it's too late! Click here for more info.

Detail of the painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
