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.
I'm sorry; I know many of you follow my work because of my dog paintings, but I'm having a really, really good time taking a break from dogs for a while. I know it was prompted by my total overload at the recent Rose City Classic Dog Show I did here in Portland, but it was also just something I knew I needed to do for a long time and didn't really have the nerve to try. I know it's going to allow me to paint dogs with a fresh perspective - and I and my customers and followers will be happier for it.
