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.

A Cute Pig Painting I Finished Recently
At the request of a customer, I painted this sweet-looking pig. The acrylic painting is 11x14" on wood panel. Several people recently have asked me what the wood paneling looks like from the side, so I shot this pic of it as the painting sat on my easel. It frames very nicely, doesn't weigh much, and fits into a mat and/or frame just as a painting on paper would. I like the smooth hard surface for painting as paint flows very nicely on it. And since I'm such a stickler for detail, it allows me to get into much greater detail on these relatively small paintings that I like to do than I can do on canvas.
