This is my attest commission portrait of a precious Maltese. This belongs to Lori Howard.
I saw a demonstration on using alcohol ink to create vivid colors and unique free form paintings. So – it looked like so much fun – I just had to try it. Absolutely love creating these colorful cactus with it. Prints available at my shop on etsy
And - so here I am. Just felt the need to spread my wings and be a bit more creative than animals. I took 3 classes from a wonderful teacher and painter on how to paint loose and colorful landscapes. Here are a couple of my results - and yes - I am having fun!
This is my latest painting. I did a Boxer and a Beagle. I just love to capture their great expressions. see my shop on etsy

Thought I would take a look at often overlooked farm animals – rabbits . But since they are so cute – I chose the cutest to paint. Here are a few. I used various techniques – some loose – some more detailed. Enjoy. All available on my etsy site at
I recently got into a watercolor class offered by Jean Haines ( international watercolor painter and teacher) in Dallas. I had tried for two years to get into a class
– but they book up almost instantly. At last – attended her class and it was nothing short of amazing. She is a great teacher and full of life! Here is my first painting after her class – yes, I got looser and employed some of her techniques – Looking forward to continuing to work on more confidence in employing her tips.
Have been doing several commission pieces for people and have just done a pair of magnificent dogs called Kangal goat dogs. They are from Turkey and are super dooper protective dogs for goat herds. Take a look at this male/female pair.
These are two new paintings of the same roosters I previously published. Different poses and different techniques. It was fun to experiment. Am showing a close up of the black rooster face because it is such an incredible expression.click here to see my items for sale on etsy
