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.
Here's a painting I just finished of a really beautiful Australian shepherd. She is part of a family of humans and dogs belonging to a friend of mine, and he kindly gave me photos for me to use in paintings. (Thanks again, Chris. Two down, two to go!)
It's an 11x14" original acrylic painting on stretched 3/4"-deep canvas and is available for sale at my website.
