"Murphy", an Akita,  was a little surprise for my friend- I took a little too long to complete a commission for her, so she got an "extra"!  :o)

"Bernie"- Pet Commission

This was commissioned by a friend who's dog passed away last year.  Bernie was such a sweetie- I love her floppy ear and her eyes!

Pet Portrait

I've had several pet portrait commissions lately, and I'm really enjoying painting them!  This for someone to give as a special gift.  I hope they enjoyed it!

Chevron Bottle Light

This wasn't a Christmas commission, but a Birthday Commission!  A friend and loyal client had me paint this bottle light for her friend who was turning 40.  She loves UNC, so we did the chevron initial in "Carolina Blue"!

Christmas Commission II (Maggie)

This pet portrait was for a dear friend who wanted to surprise her husband for Christmas- She is so stinkin' cute, isn't she?!?  I hope he was delighted with the gift!!!

Christmas Commission

Happy New Year!!!

I don't really know where 2015 went- it seems as though the older I get, the faster time goes...sigh...
I haven't made the time this past year to paint as much.  I think this is the "slowest" year I've had in the six I've been painting.  I resolve this year to NOT make any promises to paint "more"!  It only makes me feel bad when I don't, and that squashes the creative spark!!!

I did have a few commissions over Christmas.  This first one was for a client who wanted a special present for a very special friend.  I love the red background!  I hope he enjoyed it!!!
