Lucca

I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t been painting as much as I would like to. I had studio time at the West End Community Centre’s pottery studio over the fall/winter and it took most of my spare time. 

Luckily I was able to get a couple things in for some holiday gifts last minute. This beautiful golden dog was commissioned by a close friend to give his brother and brother’s wife.

Philly

I admit it, I haven’t done the best job at keeping this blog updated. Guilty! With Autumn in full force, I have no excuse. Here come the chilly nights in – my favourite time of the year, with lots of time for creating. Speaking of which, I’ve been having a great time lately. I recently finished a new painting of an adorable dog named Philly. I love the wood in the background, and that I got to give him a little name plaque. I was told he has quite a stoic personality, so I think this suited him well. I’m looking forward to bringing more wood texture into my paintings.

Pomeranians

Love it or hate it, people treat their animals as their children (I’m no exception, I want to squeeze my dogs every time I see them). What better gift for a “pet parent” than a portrait of their little gal/guy? Separate from my regular body of work, I’ve been doing these portraits for a couple years now and each one is as fun as the next. Here is one I finished this morning of two sickeningly cute pomeranians for a friend who is giving the painting to his girlfriend.
