Baloo and Lili

These two portraits went to one family. Doesn’t Baloo have the most fabulous mane of hair?

Portrait of Zoey

This was a special portrait because I personally know this dog and she might be my favorite! She’s the best girl and this is a classic Zoey face.

Peacock Painting

This pair of canvases was designed to go together, putting the peacock body on one canvas and the tail primarily on the second. This was such a fun mixed media piece designed to match (and bring color to) the room it was painted for.

Portrait of CC

A painting of CC, who lived a long happy life with my sister and is greatly missed.

Portrait of Saul for LifeLine Animal Center

I’ve finished Saul’s portrait for LifeLine Community Animal Center grand opening party this weekend! Several Atlanta artists created portraits of their dogs and if you adopt one of the models you get the painting too. It was awesome to be a part of something so special, and you know I love painting animals.

Progress on Art Gone Wild

I’ve been a busy, busy bee finalizing my final pieces for the art show on Friday! Here are some of my birds from Art Gone Wild in various stages. I can’t wait to share the finished paintings.

Art Gone Wild 2019 Paint Out Week

I’ve been selected for a third year for Zoo Atlanta’s Art Gone Wild fundraising art show! Paint out week was lovely, despite the rain – and great reunion seeing all of my AGW artist friends. The new rhinoceros hornbills, Bill and Nancy, were a hit with everyone! And Ros, my favorite king vulture, put on a great show for me. She will definitely be getting her own canvas this year. Here are some of my illustrations that have already gone to new homes during the week. Stay tuned for progress on the final pieces!
