The DOGS of 2011 – Life is full of Surprises…painting the Best Friends.


I love surprises.
Yes, some surprises are not so good, 
but many are wonderful and life changing.
For example, 
had you told me, one year ago, that I would end the year 2011
having established a little Blog following and be doing Custom Pet Portraits for customers all over the world…I would have..
…well I would have gotten excited!

Charlie the Yellow Lab

I have met the most wonderful people through my blog and I treasure the most special connection that evolves from sharing the love one has for a Pet.
It is a special bond.
It fascinates me  that 80% of my custom pet paintings have been purchased 
by Women for their boyfriends, husbands, sons, brothers, Dads…
Men can be so hard to buy for, 
and they ALL LOVE paintings of their
Buddies. 
I LOVE that!

In fact, this painting is my most recent one, 
and it is a birthday gift for a very  lucky  and loved husband
of his Shiba Inu Dog named “Colden”…

One of my “goals” for 2012, is to get more consistently better at
photographing my ART.
did you notice how many Charlies and Lucys there were!
I cannot wait to meet some more Pups this year.

hey, guess what i just did. It started with a bite and ended with me finishing a whole giant Hersey bar…and you know what…
IT WAS REALLY GOOD!!!
