Gallery

The "Dog Days of Summer" typically run July 3 through August 11. Named after Sirius, the Dog Star, the dog days of summer are the hottest days of summer. In an effort to keep my mind off the heat, and to keep motivated to paint daily, I have come up with a painting series I'm calling the Dog Days of Summer.  I hope to paint one dog portrait daily through August 11.  They will be 8 x 10 in size and will be available for purchase for $80.  I hope you enjoy them!

I am intrigued by faces--what they tell me, real or imagined. The figure and faces are my favorite things to paint.

I got my first camera when I was 7 years old, and ever since then, I've carried a camera of some sort with me. Though not a professional photographer, I love taking pictures!

This is a new project, for me. I am painting portraits of some of the animals at the Shelby County Animal Shelter. 10% of the proceeds from the sale of these portraits will be donated to the animal shelter/rescue of your choice.
