Meet Eddie. I had done one of her earlier in watercolour but thought her to be such a good model i had to paint her in acrylic. I lover her expression. Cows are still a favourite subject for me. I love their quirkiness and find them to be quite comical in a way. Much like my Boxers. There is a resemblance. Perhaps that is why. This is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, 20" X 24".

"Reading Week"

I thought it might be time for another village. These are such fun to do. I've been very busy with commissions lately and had spent a great deal of time on cow and barnyard paintings forgetting about the whimsical side of things. There is a freedom when it is all made up which does not exist while making a picture for someone. Rather refreshing i think and a bit of a breather. Watercolor on Arches 300lb. Cold pressed paper. Approximately 11" X 30".

This is Bronte. A lovely Beagle belonging to a fellow in Australia.  I've been fairly busy lately with dog portraits and have a few more to finish, hopefully before August. This little girl sat nearly finished for the longest time because i was just not able to see a final image clearly for some reason. Today it happened and we had a grand time together. I asked little Bronte to lead the way and she did! The rest as they say is, "history". Watercolor on Arches 300 lb. cold pressed paper. 18" X 18".

A wee Boxer pup i did for a friend who does great and wonderful work for Boxer Rescue Canada.
She does not have this little girl anymore as she has already lived her life and left a lot of broken hearts behind as is often the case. Watercolor, on Arches, 300lb. CP paper. approximately 10" X 14".
