I paint for a living. It's the best "job" in the world - and the most challenging. I love every second of it.
I paint mostly animals, especially dogs, cats, and farm animals, but I often paint other themes as well, such as landscapes, wild birds, flowers, etc.
I paint mostly on canvas with acrylics (sometimes oils). My style is bright and usually realistic.
This is a recent commission I've done for a customer's wife's birthday. I love the action in the dog's body, the intensity in his face, and the soft colors except where the strong sunlight hits the high spots on his body. It was a pleasure to do this painting.
