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!
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!
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!
This oil painting is of Pepper, the very silly and energetic cat. I was hoping to catch that bit that energy he has in the painting.
This painting was a quick one that I just wanted to do!
This is a painting I did as a gift for my great aunt who recently lost her dog Scout. When one of my dogs was younger and I was in college she really helped me out by watching my dog for my senior year so I could focus on school. So I owed her for sure. Scout was a pleasure to paint and really will be missed.
This video shows pretty well my process of painting in oil. Start big work to small!
