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.

Holstein Cow, Standing, on Blue Background
This is a sweet painting I just finished yesterday afternoon. She's a Holstein cow that I saw on my neighbor's field when I lived in Denmark last summer. I couldn't decide on a background, and I love this color of blue that I had put down just to eliminate the white canvas color as I painted, so I decided to enhance it and keep it. I like the look, modern but classical.
The painting is acrylic, on a stretched 16x20x3/4" canvas, and has been sold.
