Sunny has her likeness done

Our dog, Sunny, sat for a few photos, from which I made this portrate. It was practice for a series (I just bought 30 canvases) about the dogs and cats at the local shelter. Am excited to see how that goes! Acrylic latex on 18 x 24 museum edge canvas.

Fun Run Tee Shirt

When not painting or birdhousing, I sometimes do graphics for worthy causes. This was one of those. A funny design of a fireman chasing a fire, they used to call firemen "smoke chasers" back in the day

Plein Air, Sandpiper Gallery

A week ago 38 artists drove out across the Blackfoot Indian Reservation to Plein Air their impressions of this place. I found this wonderful old truck in Camas, asked the owner if I could paint it (he said NO, 'cuz he liked the color it was), but then said yes to a Picture of it! What a great day!

Trailer house Birdhouses

For the 5th summer I have a display of trailer house birdhouses up in the front yard. Selling better this summer than last, will have to make more I think. Enjoy meeting people as they pick out their new home!
