I've wanted to paint this guy for a long time. Didn't know how to do it I think I got it - at least my version. Thanks!

This is a redo of a small painting(actually I did 3 Ringo's - remember he's a cashmere goat - anyway they all sold so I thought what the heck give it a go) - I wanted to see how hard it is to enlarge an idea.  You'd think it would be about the same but it's a completely different mindset.  Painting large - it's too much fun all that paint!!!! Thanks for following.
MY WEBSITE I've worked on my title page but it's looking a little better. E mail me with any

Remember the first rooster?? Well he disappeared and got replaced by Tony. I needed the 12 x 12 gessobord to finish the series and didn't want to order any more right now - he's completely different and well I think it's a good thing. I learned a lot in the process. Thanks for following and thanks for all the emails and thoughts.

OK so the story is that I've been sick - ugly sick I don't recommend it! I painted every day in between alka - seltzer plus - codein cough syrup  - ibuprofen - pomegranate juice - chicken noodle soup and passing out on the couch.  I've been working on some larger animal pieces to have new work for the December first friday. Gotta pay those gallery fees and I'm hoping this bunny can help that cause. Thanks for following and I hope in some weird way you missed me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

   My Grammy is 97 years old and Deena was by far her favorite dog.  She was supposed to be a Chihuahua but turned out to be a Chihuahua/corgi mix topping out at 26 pounds.  When I asked my Grandma to describe her she said “stubborn, loyal and loving.”   My Grandparents and Deena were inseperable.  I got a lot of my love of animals from both my Grandparents.

Not sure if this one will survive past tomorrow morning. I'll sleep on it and see how I feel. The life of a painter - paint all day - and maybe end up with nothing. Thanks for following.

I fixed this one today. I didn't like it when I posted it last night - here's the new version. I'm kind of in a slump so the cupcakes are going to help me crawl out of this thing. I have been struggling with my new colors for a long time and really getting no where - I've also been using brushes that are too small - so I'm back to big brushes and kind of thick paint. I love thick paint so why fight it - but I do. I've been trying to add too many new things at once - I just have to be me cause who else would I be. Funky is as funky does! Thanks for following. I'll try to keep it interesting.

This is Eve. We had her from puppy until she passed. She was a true hunter in her early years, hunting all sorts of "badgers" - land badgers (squirrels), areo-badgers (birds), and aqua-badgers (fish)!

She loved "tasting" the fish on the end of the fishing rod. She chased squirrels and almost caught them on numerous occasions. At Christmas, she enjoyed unwrapping presents and was quite good at it!

She was a true lap dog, anxious to sit at your feet, on a blanket, by the fire.
