This is Shakespeare, a very special kitty that passed away. He belonged to one of my friends and is missed!
This painting is of Gus! Another painting from this past holiday season!
This painting is one of Emma. Emma was a cat that passed a few years ago and has been painted by many different artists locally. This painting is up at the local pet after care center here in Bellingham, Radiant Heart After-Care for Pets. This allows people to see the many different styles of pet portraits done by different artists.
This painting is of sweet Bella. She was a a sweet, steady soul and very very devoted. She was an Entlebucher Mountain Dog and lived to be 14 years old. I hope I did her justice!
Earth Day was first celebrated 49 years ago in 1970. Individuals grouped together to protest the negative impacts of industrial development. As a result of pesticide use and pollution, biodiversity was declining. In the same year, the Environmental Protection Agency was formed to protect the air and water. Recently it seems as though the environment is not important to those in charge of our country, I am hoping that changes.
Art can help bring to light the issues facing our planet. Art can help raise questions, communicate ideas and reveal conflicts. A personal goal of mine is to visually translate the natural world to help others understand. My vision is that through art and understanding, we can start a conversation and illuminate what we stand to gain or lose in our efforts concerning the planet.
Another holiday commission. This one was interesting because they wanted grass behind Charlie the dog. ended up experimenting with different layouts while painting on this one.
This was a commission I got during the holiday season! Hubble!
Be skeptical today of anything you read! It is April Fools Day.
National Puppy Day was this past weekend and I want to take some time to appreciate all the Puppies and Dogs I have painted! Seriously animals are my inspiration and I wouldn’t have a career without them. So thank you to the pets out there!
Here are a few of the puppies that I have painted!
I have been working on creating a few different paintings of different dog breeds. I can then use the paintings for marketing or selling prints or whatever! This one is of a Golden Retriever!
