I'm currently exploring mixed media abstract work inspired by the Sonoran Desert. I have a particular interest in expressionist or intuitive painting where I can meld the impressions of my surroundings with the expressions of my inner world.

Pet Portraits

Once I ran out of Grand kids to paint, I began painting my Grand dogs. After just a few, I began getting requests for more from friends and colleagues. It didn't take long to figure out that I really enjoyed capturing pet personalities on canvas.
UPDATE: You can see more pet portraits I've created HERE


  1. Oh I love these! I am also inspired to do animals and pets. Your pet portraits (and people too!) are wonderful!!!

    1. Thanks so much Debra! I'm in love with your goose painting! Seems to me you already have the animal thing going! :-)
