Last fall I made the VERY difficult decision to stop taking commission work. I have LOVED painting custom pet portraits and plan to return to them in the future but I need to devote my painting time to my original painting to continue growing as an ARTIST.


SO, I would like to announce an exciting  PROJECT I am undertaking!!!

For the month of February – I will be PAINTING AND PRESENTING


Each painting will be POSTED and then listed for sale ON THIS SITE ONLY.>ALL DOG (a day) PAINTINGS  paintings will MEASURE 10″ x 10″ in size and will be priced at $250 which will include shipping and handling to anywhere in the US. International shipping will be calculated at the time of purchase.

AND NOW, HERE IS HOW YOU CAN be involved –

1.Spread the word. You make drop and drag my logo and share it on any of your social media sites!

2. Tell me Breeds you would like painted and Send me your photos!!! If I choose to paint your pet I will let you know the day before it is posted!.

 All DOG A DAY paintings will be sold on a first come/first serve basis.

Paintings will be posted at the same time (TBA) each day.

I plan to donate a 10% of the proceeds to the Charlottesville/Albemarle SPCA.

  1. Nothing better than pup pics!!!! I won’t send a photo (mainly because we keep our little guy in a puppy cut – even though he is 6 yrs. old – and many folks do not), but how about a Coton de Tulear?

  2. English setters! I’ll send you a picture of mine and maybe others. Because we’re a little bit biased!

      1. We have a tricolour – brown, black and white. She’s so gorgeous and such a sweetheart. I’ll see what I can scrounge.

  3. I will send you two breeds… 1st one is a Bracco and the other is a Spinonie (Italian Bird dogs)

  4. Hi Leslie- Where should I send the pictures of the dogs for your Feb. project? I tried to email them but I am not sure you got them (I have an old email) I look forward to hearing from you. Shannon

  5. Hi! I just found your blog looking for a light grey/teeny hint of blue/violet (vs green)…can you tell I’m driving myself insane? Small room and I’ve already spent $75 on samples *sigh* I could never undertake a project like renovating my kitchen, with this rate of indecision. Anyway, love the idea of dog-a-day. My vote is for golden retrievers…BUT my daughter has a mini bull terrier who is an adorable goof. Will send a couple of photos but not sure where to send them.

    Btw, also loved the “anchors aweigh” line. Very cute 🙂

    1. Hi Deborah,

      The first color that popped into my head is Portland Gray. It is a color I tried a few years ago when I was trying to find a gray for our bedroom. It is one of the 6 or 7 colors tat went into what became my “Bergman Gray”….and I remember that the Portland gray had a blue/purple kind of undertone that was hard to see until you out it next to another, less purple -gray. Anyway, check it out! Let me know if it is a step in the right direction.
