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 small cow painting I just finished today of a Hereford cow that I photographed in Tillamook, OR, near the cheese factory there. It was a fun, beautiful day, and I photographed a lot of farm animals, many of which I've already painted. This girl was really suspicious of me and my camera but curious enough that I managed to get a few shots of her before she took off to a safe distance.
I'm going back to the Coast next week, so I'll be getting some more good images to be painting.
