What a great name for a dog, especially a Bernese Mountain dog. This fine fellow is a commission requested by the dog owner's Mother for her birthday. Hope she likes it! Acrylic on canvas. 18" X 24".

I had donated a pet portrait to "Boxer Rescue Canada" for their Fall auction fundraiser and the winning bidder receives a portrait of their beloved dog. This boy belonged to the lady who won the auction. He is a pure bread male Boxer named Tega. Sadly he is no longer with us. This is watercolour on 300 lb. Arches C/P paper approximately 18" X 22" .

"Victoria Street:

I spent part of October last year in Nelson B.C. taking care of someone's home and had some pleasant moments sketching in and around town. This painting is from a sketch i did of Victoria Street in Nelson. Nelson is a picturesque little town in the Kootenays. A beautiful spot to visit if in the area. Some great local restaurants too! I was house sitting for a lady who had a cattery. 
There were 19 of the little critters. 
An uncommon breed called "Siberians' because they originate from Siberia and resemble small lions. Some good sketching was had with them as well! 
This is watercolour on Arches C/P paper.   
20 X 27" .
