Cloud the Wonder Dog

8" x 10"
oil on panel

My new friend (and wonderful painter) Kathleen Coy and I decided for Christmas to exchange portraits. I painted her dog Cloud (The Wonder Dog) and she painted my Chumley. It was quite fun and challenging - It's not often that I do a portrait for a fellow painter and I felt more less confident that usual, but was able to forge ahead and complete a piece I am very happy with.

When I feel insecure and question my abilities, I say to myself "Buck-up and paint like you know what you're doing!" 
It always works. 

You can see Kathleen's awesome work here:

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas day has brought a welcome break from the end commission season. I just finished that last one this morning and now I can get ready for my show at McErny Gallery in 2014. I'll be experimenting with some larger paintings and very excited about the possibilities!

I hope that you all have a safe and peaceful holiday season. 
Thank you for supporting my art through the years. Through your patronage, I have been able to pursue my passion and for this I am grateful. 

Do something awesome for yourself and an artist in the new year, go out and buy some art!
