"Splash 14"

I am so excited, "Splash 14" finally arrived at my door.  It was the most amazing thing to receive my copy of this beautiful book and see my painting, "Meana" side by side with some of the best watercolorists around.  Ones i have been admiring for a very long time. It was a dream come true for this artist as i had submitted once before and did not get accepted. Hooray! I've scoured these books end to end for years. To finally see this with one of my paintings was crazy. I am still gobsmacked. If you would like a copy of your own, here is a link to Northlight publishing. It is really well done with over 100 artists represented.

"Eddie the Third"

This would be the 3rd version of this fabulous animal. I painted him facing the other way in watercolour and then in acrylic and now watercolour again. Each version is quite different. I suppose it would be safe to say this is my favourite model thus far. Transparent watercolour on Arches 300lb. cold pressed.

This is Jenny. A new puppy portrait of a lovely girl. Sadly Jenny passed on just a short time ago. I'm hopeful this painting captures Jenny's personality and will be forever a gentle reminder of a loving companion.
