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 little 8x10x1" black pug puppy painting I did today. It's acrylic on wood paneling with sides painted the same as the red background. It was a pleasure to paint, as are all pugs -- and I know because I do paint a lot of them. I've never had one, but I've had the great opportunity to meet many of them in my dog-painting career, and I find them to be very friendly, gentle, outgoing but calm dogs. I won't mind it a bit if I find myself with one someday.
As usual, the prints are available on my website, and I also have the original listed there as well.
A quick note: I no longer sell the pendants from my website, but they are for sale on Artfire.
