Salutation To The Sun

8x6" acrylic painting

I love these maple trees.  I imagine this one a female, dressed in her finest licorice ferns doing her yoga salutation as sunlight penetrates the forest.

Arggggh...?   I know, he has a hard time pulling off the mean scary part, but you have to admit he's got the hairy inscrutable bit down perfectly!  Pirate is a Bouvier des Flanders.

Morning Walk

acrylic landscape, see DPW for sales info.
The sun is just beginning to break through the mist during my morning walk, a welcome start to the day.  Even the trees seem to yawn and stretch up to greet the sky... salutation to the sun.

Can You See Me Now?

5x7" acrylic  SOLD
Here is a perfect example of why it's rewarding to do commission work.... this was painted from a client photo and it was so much fun to paint!  I don't know what she thinks yet, but the fun factor makes it worthwhile for me :)  Besides, Domino is a Cocker Spaniel, with coloring called "parti merle"which accounts for the bright blue eyes..... if that wasn't enough, Mr. Domino is a rescue who is now an official therapy dog, how cool is that?  (I know I feel better just lookin' at his photo, let alone getting to snuggle up with him :)

"Whose Trees?" SOLD
It's so nice when a painting finds it's way "home"  In fact, I think that's the time when any painting can finally be considered completed.....  when the circles of inspiration, creation and sharing all link together.  This work was dedicated to the trees of Kopachuck Park, It makes me happy that it has resonated with so many people that know the inimitable value of our forest lands.  Happy Birthdays Molly & Don, I hope this painting brings you joy.  Thanks for completing it!

Is It Safe Yet Delilah?

acrylic 6x8" puppy painting SOLD
Meet Humpfrey and Delilah, my niece's new Basset Hound puppies.  At this moment they are not entirely sure it's safe to play with that very BIG dog, RubyDo bounding around.  In another moment they'll decide yes, it might be ok to come out from under Josh's chair.  Off they go, as fast as Basset puppies can while tripping over oversized ears and feet!

the Sales String

6x8" acrylic, see DPW for purchase information
Remember the plastic ponies?  They beat out Barbie every time for me, although I must admit that I noticed their sometimes strange anatomical positions at an early age.... precursor to conducting lameness exams on the real thing I guess :)
