Here are four new paintings that I'm excited to share...
This painting is a revised version of an earlier work- bigger and (I feel) even better. It was purchased by Mutt Lynch Wineries in California. They feature dogs on their wine labels...
This painting is called 'Dynamism of a Basset- Ode to Balla'. It is my twist on a favourite painting by Futurist Painter Giacomo Balla called 'Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash' 1912. The original painting features a dachshund, its little legs a blur... Bassets on the other hand typically don't move that quickly... just his tail and ear seem to have momentum in this image.
'The Orange Ball'. What more needs to be said...? Except maybe that this image is quite large- 18" x 54".
Little Polly is a Chihuahua/ Yorkie mix... I think. She is wonderfully strange and incredible sweet.

sweet Koko

Sweet little Koko. She loves her toys but really loves her human... they're practically inseparable- except when she's posing for pictures...

Sweet and devoted

the latest addition to the pet portfolio- Lola and Spencer are absolutely devoted to their human. He felt it would be appropriate to place them in an outdoor setting. I created the leaves by making linocuts and then individually painting them different colours before I 'printed' them on the wood panel.

Christmas Commissions

This is Joey. She is an adorable little girl posing in her autumn best.
Oskar is a Coton. He was a perfect little gentleman and posed for me without complaint (despite his human's expectations). :) He is standing on his favourite rug and blanket.
