4" x 6" Oil on Panel

(copyright does not appear on actual painting)

Last summer, we took our dog, Mackenzie to the beach for the first time. She had an absolute blast! This 'snapshot painting' memroializes her joy in finding water that played with her!

On a side note, I think I am going to have to paint over the signature and do it again. I have a tendency to sign right along the edge, which makes it hard to frame the painting without obscuring the signature.

Also today, I started a commissioned portrait of "Spiffy". He was a very sweet little guy that lived a long and happy life. He is much missed.

This first installment is sketching his position on the canvas. I was debating whether to add his tail, which is not viisble in the actual photo, but I think I will do without it, since he didn't hold it up very often. I'm still thinking about it. Also you can see that I have his bottom a bit too far to the left. I'll fix that in the upcoming sessions.

Thank you for your interest and great emails! I enjoy hearing from you all!

Charity Painting for Columbia County Humane Society


Well, it's certainly been a while since I sent out a painting. I have a very exciting announcement tonight - if you are a search & rescue dog handler, or know someone that is, please get in touch with me. I am very grateful to those who dedicate so much of their time and resources to helping others. I would like to give a FREE 4"x6" oil portrait of their working dog to any S&R handlers that contact me. So, please help me get the word out!

At the request of various rescues, I have started offering either a 100% 4"x6" charity painting or 50% of a larger (12"x16" - 16"x20") painting. Now, without further delay - here is this week's 100% charity painting.

100% of All Funds raised benefit
Columbia County Humane Society

Click here to bid on eBay

Please spend more than you might otherwise. You will be getting an original work of art from a highly collected artist, and 100% of your money goes to the rescue. The artist takes absolutely no money from this auction, she pays the listing fees and shipping fees out of her own pocket. You will be helping the animals and getting some fine art in the bargain!

This painting is of Henry, a handsome male beagle that was found by a local animal lover. This poor boy was trapped in the median of interstate 20. Henry had been hit by a car that broke one of his back legs. Can you imagine the fear he felt, the pain of a broken leg unable to move out of harm's way while watching cars approaching so close at 65 mph. He had the good sense not to try and drag himself back across the interstate where he came from. Henry has been adopted and is living in a forever home.

If you have a non-profit organization that and you would like me to donate a free painting & auction it off for you please click here to contact me. It does not have to be a dog-related rescue - any non-profit charitable organization will be considered.

Thank you again for your interest in my artwork. Hopefully you'll hear from me again soon! Please reply to this email if you want to contact me. I will answer all emails.
