White Koi

White Koi
8x10"
oil on canvas
view in my shop

This is my first painting of 2017.

I decided on Chumley because he is my most favorite subject to paint and this is his favorite thing to do - see the fish at the Arboretum. I ask him "do you want to go see the fish?" and he knows exactly what's coming. If I let him, he would stay all day and stare at the koi. When we leave he digs his feet in and pulls on the leash with his teeth to stay. I practically have to drag him out (really sad).

Any way, I'm hoping for the New Year you get to do all of your most favorite things.

Happy New Year Everybody!

The Dread Pirate Roberts

Dread Pirate Roberts
8" x 10"
oil on canvas
framed
view in my shop

I've been on a bit of a break.
For the past few weeks I've had some "painters block".
It happens.
I think I'm back on track.

I have been wanting to paint pirate kitties for a while now - after seeing the cats on Ocrakoke Island, I was inspired. This is the first - he's named after the mythical pirate in "The Princess Bride" (one of my favorite movies).

“Inconceivable!"
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

First Place!





"Morning Nap"
7" x 5"
oil on panel

I am so thrilled to announce my painting has been chosen for first place in the DailyPaintworks monthly contest!!!

Do you remember the scream Olive unleashes in "Little Miss Sunshine" when she gets the message that she has won the beauty contest? That was me after finding out I won. My dogs seriously thought I had lost my mind corralling around me like little groupies joining in on the celebration. Or maybe they were just hoping for a treat.

I painted this image a few years ago and I've alway wanted to paint it big.
Now, it's almost life-size!
