oil on canvas
16 x 16" (gallery wrap wide canvas)

For the past two weeks Chumley has been extremely sick. It started with a tooth infection and then an everything infection. The vet ended up doing emergency surgery which was a success, removing four teeth including both of his large top molars without damaging his jaw. He is still recovering with an ear infection and an abscess where one of the teeth were removed, but he's eating, taking his meds and getting stronger everyday.

This is a painting of Chumley from a photo I took a while back - I've always loved the color under his jaw - the way it blends into white, ochre and then black.

New Art and Magazine Covers!

Mixed Medium
15 x 12"

Hi all!
Been awhile since I posted. I've been taking a loooong break from painting, but I have recently started working in pastels and watercolor and really enjoying it.

Mixed Medium
15 x 12"
Keeping this one :)

In other news... I was on the cover and the featured artist of the New Barker Magazine earlier this year! Since I had been taking a break, it came at a really good time and kind of re-energized me in making art.

Since Ive been working in watercolors, I have amassed a pretty good collection and have put them in my shop here for sale:

Waiting for the Storm to Pass

Lately, I haven't been painting or posting much because I have been helping my partner run his company. I have had to put painting aside for awhile and even though I do miss it and think about it most of the time, I'm ok with it for now.

Recently, we had hurricane Florence directly hit Wilmington and caused mass devastation. We were without power for about 10 days and although we only had some flooding and lots of limbs down, we really came through unscathed unlike a lot of people even nearby our home - It's been very sad.

Because of all the quiet time, I've been slowly migrating back to the painting mindset and I painted this little sketch of Frida during the storm.
It felt good to sit and move
some paint around.
