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.

Checkers the Rooster!
This is one of my daughter's chickens, an adorable rooster that my granddaughter named "Checkers" for some unknown reason. But Checkers it is! I spent around an hour with him last week, taking photos and making sketches, and here's the painting that resulted from our little visit. It's an acrylic painting on a stretched 16x20x3/4" canvas and is for sale on Etsy, along with prints of the painting.
I just love how feisty he is, and I think I may have to do at least one more painting of him.
I also redid the sunflower painting again, and I really like it better now. It's much happier looking!
