Nola Belle

Commissioned as a Christmas gift.  Nola Belle is a rescue dog, and she is from New Orleans.  She is super sweet and I'm sure she loves king cake and Mardi Gras!

Papa and Max

This is a portrait of my grandfather and my son.  PaPa passed away a few years ago, and this painting was just my way of remembering how he lit up everytime he held a baby.
24x36" oil on canvas

Eleven in Vincent's bedroom.

Don't do a lot of fan art, but this was a lot of fun. Acrylic on board. Based off of Van Goghs bedroom in Arles.

PaPa and Max

This is a small 8x10 panel sketch of my grandfather and my son.  My grandfather loved children.  He loved them so much that crying babies would almost instantly fall asleep in his arms.  A baby doesn't know much, but he knows when he's safe and loved.

It was too boring! So I added a sunset to liven it up.

Brown Pelican Diving

I've been meaning to paint this for a couple of years and every time I started, it just wasn't right.  Not sure if this one is finished, but I'm more pleased with it than the others.

Blue Wheat

Decided to try out pastels for the first time.  My brother gave me a set for Christmas last year, and they've been sitting on a shelf, neglected.  A bit messy, but okay for a first attempt, I think.

Bison and Belteds

16x20 acrylic on canvas. A nice little Valentine's Day present for a friend to give to her park ranger boyfriend.  He loves Bison and kingfishers, so she wanted to give him a painting with both, and this is what I came up with.
