Shetland Sheepdog Oil

Shetland Sheepdog
I was going through my numerous dog photos from years ago and found a photo of a sheltie I met at a
dog event where I had my dog in a flyball demonstration. This little guys owner was so nice but I forgot her name and the dogs name and failed to write it on the back of the photo. I love painting these little miniatures.

Young Golden by Charlotte Yealey

colored pencil
This young golden retriever was at a dog lure coursing event to be socialized and have a try at coursing. It seemed to have a lot of fun that day so I had to do this colored pencil drawing.

Eastern Bluebird

This is my actually first painting of the new year. After painting commissions over the holidays I felt I had to paint a subject I chose and also needed something blue for the Hanover Art Guild "In the Blue" show. I used an old photo I took years ago of a bluebird that flew into my tree from the neighbors. I don't have bluebirds coming to my feeder but I wish I did.

"Tyson" Pet portrait

Oil on Wood
It has been a while since I did a pet portrait on wood but this was a special request from a previous customer for a friend. It needs to dry then varnished-hope he likes it.

Cardinal #3

Cardinal #3
I do believe I have Cardinal fever. I keep seeing more at my feeder and I keep snapping their photos and then I have to paint them. These three were painted before Christmas maybe I will continue the
series in 2013.
