"Holiday in Tuscany"


"Holiday in Tuscany"
30” x 20”
Oil on Linen

When I got into my first Western Gallery, Mountain Trails Gallery in Park City, Utah, I assumed I would be painting mostly cowboys and western scene for them. They taught me never to assume anything; though they are very fond of my western scenes they also seem to like my still life paintings.

This is the latest one I took to the Gallery on my last trip out.

For the love of a Duck

"Spike"
10" x 8"
Wooden Box
SOLD
I had the pleasure of painting this colorful image for one of my Gallery owners as a Christmas present to her Husband. It seems this duck hangs out where he works and he has grown rather attached to this animal he has lovingly named “Spike”.

I must say this one was wonderfully fun to paint!!

My New Best Friend

“It’s all about Max”
10” x 8”
Oil on Linen Panel
NFS

I have always had big dogs and never really spent that much time with small ones. Last March I went out to Salt Lake City to meet my new Family and gained an unexpected family member. Within about five minutes of arriving at their house this little fellow had me wrapped around his paw!
I was fortunate to catch this terrific shot of him while I was there and was able to paint it for Tom and Jan for their Christmas gift! I was so happy they were pleased, and I think Max was a bit proud of it to!
It is so much fun to paint something you love!!!!!
