My New Technique

So what do I have on my drawing board in my studio?  I totally love the ink, watercolor and colored pencil technique that I have been doing. After the watercolor I get to have great fun with all my colored pencils.  Getting away from commissions and the have to's, not complaining since that keeps my business going, but doing these drawings, paintings, gives me time to unwind...and gives me a terrific painting.

I recently was invited to show 4 pieces of my Lab art at the Ormond Memorial Museum and Gardens  > I will be one of 15 Florida artists showing their work for the summer. Very excited and very honored. I came as a huge surprise!

I'll keep you updated!! Opening is June 23rd, if you are in the area!! Would love to meet you!

Fun With A New Technique

So after I did the piece of Sophie in ink, watercolor and colored pencils I had to keep going.  Two more completed pieces on Arches watercolor board.


   "Move Over You Are Hogging All The Room"   This was from our Scotland trip last year and was so fun to do.  You may bid on it HERE 

   Then I just finished "The Fisherman" It was from my Mothers Day kayaking adventure with our son and family. Calm and peaceful and all you could hear were the birds.

                                                           "The Fisherman" 8" x 10"
You may find this one HERE  Allot of work but I loved doing it. Now to do one from that day with a Lab!!!

Hope you enjoy seeing new work. Thanks for stopping by.

Allot Going On!!!

Wow, sometimes the days just FLYYYYY by. I had been working on a 16 x 20 painting off and on of Ozzie's family. They had been dumped as puppies at a kill shelter and luckily pulled by Labs4 Rescue. Then we were able to adopt our Ozzie boy.


 Finished. 16 x 20 oil on canvas..I have it on Daily PaintWorks as an auction with 50% of the sale going to Labs4Rescue.

  My next piece I did today. Mixed Media with pencil, ink,watercolor and colored pencil. I have been experimenting for a few days and I'm really pleased how this came out today. Again you will find this for sale on myDaily Paintworks page  Here is the artwork.

Hope you enjoy these. More to come!!!

Working On A Commission of Three Red Labs


I started the sketch the other day at my studio. I then started to lay in color. The next picture will show you where I am today. Still deciding what to do with the sky but thinking of gradually going to a pale no color yellow. A bit of glazing. :-)
