Japanese Anemones

Happy March, Friends!
Spring will arrive this month, as well as our Covidversary. What an epic year. I stayed at home and painted more this year than any other.
Here’s a painting of Japanese Anemones that I hope will get your month started off on a positive note.

This is a portrait that @catcar19 asked me to paint last year for her friend Roger Wills, whose dear furry friend Kirwan had just gone to doggie heaven.

Happy February!

Happy February, Friends!
As the snow is piling up outside my window, it might be a nice time to think about a pug in a nice warm, summer garden!

And Happy January! These are my portraits of @hilda.gitchell’s friends Rory and Maeve to help bark in the New Year. I hope that it is a year full of Hope, Joy and Prosperity for you all.

CHUEY, the Labradoodle

Chuey is a very cute Labradoodle who divides his time between Brooklyn and Red Hook NY. He was very pleased with his portrait, as were his human friends.

Happy December, Friends!
This is Ms. Mystery December. She is a surprise gift for later in the month, so if you recognize her, mum’s the word.

Rebirth. I finished this painting on the day that Biden beat Trump officially. Though I started this painting in June, it felt symbolic to finish it on that glorious day. It seems to hold the spirit of the feeling that I felt watching the speeches that night.

This is the first of a pair of paintings that I am making for @ma_ma_honey_badger and @brentfontana. Stay tuned for number two coming soon!

Happy November, Everybody!
This is my portrait of Cleo the dog here to help celebrate the new month. Hope you all are enjoying a lazy Autumn Sunday.

October in Woodstock

Woodstock in October is the very best.
