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.

English Springer Spaniel Portrait
This is Sarah Lucille's portrait. She's a recent commissioned painting. It was such a pleasure to paint her portrait, and I thought it would be a big challenge, too, as the painting for me was quite large, 24x36". But, quite to the contrary, I grabbed my biggest brushes and dived into the painting with gusto and enthusiasm. As it turned out, this painting was one of those which I swear just painted itself and I just hung onto the brushes and went along for the fun, wild ride! I'm very happy with the results, and I feel the clients were as well.
