Sea Oats at Sunset

6″ x 6″ Oil

I’m loving painting on these 6″ x 6″ Ampersand panels.

Every day I’m excited to try a new scene on these

small, slippery canvas boards. I get new finishes and

am challenged to produce different textures.

In this one I wanted the sky to have soft edges

and the sea oats in the foreground to stand out with harder edges.

Cute Doggie

8″ x 10″ Oil, Not For Sale

I love doing pet commissions!

This one I had to re-do completely,

which was momentarily frustrating,

but am so happy with the final result.

This painting was commissioned by someone

who is surprising her friend

with this portrait as a gift.
Please consider having me paint your pet

or a loved one’s pet.
