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 sweet pug painting I recently completed from photos submitted by a customer. She said she never sees any brindle pug artwork anywhere, and now I understand why. It was really hard to get the brindle "feel" in the painting without trying to paint every hair -- which is what I'm trying to learn to avoid!
The original is a bit different from this 8x10" image in that it's on a 24x24" canvas. It is for sale. Contact me if you're interested.
