A Tribute to our Family Dog, Jesse

Our 16 year old, deaf, family dog, Jesse snuck out of the gate 3 weeks ago on that bitter Sunday and never came home. Despite out tireless efforts, we have not found her. I am so pleased that my artist husband, Steve created this little 4 x 6 oil portrait of her last year. She disappeared as we originally found her-wandering. It is SO sad!  It's a very fitting and lovely tribute to a little "Lassie dog" who was the ultimate family companion!

Pastel of Cocker Spaniel cutey!

Figgy is a beautiful little buff cocker spaniel and I created this 16 x 20 pastel of him as a surprise for the husband while also creating a large pastel portrait of their charming daughter, Mary Michael!

"We LOVE this incredible portrait that I asked you to create of Figgy as a surprise for my husband! He was so happy with Mary Michael's portrait and never suspected our secret! Many thanks for being able to pull it off on such short notice!"  - B. F. Watson Raleigh, NC

River inspiration

Sometimes it's good to go back to your photo albums, especially when the temperatures are hovering around 15 degrees and remember that the beauty of some aspects of winter is that there is always a spring!
Actually this photo image was taken in the early fall  at the base of the Kerr-Scott dam and the amount of bird groups was amazing.
The wild flowers were all the fall aster variety and beautifully stunning in their yellow colors.
An inspiration to go to the studio and paint!

Me and My Pony

I love images like this and had fun creating this 14 x 18 pastel! What says summer memories like a child on her pony? And on a trail ride no less? The total horse experience!
