Acrylic on Canvas
I love painting dogs. As an expressionistic artist I paint dogs in in bright colors and in scenarios that amuse and delight me. When a friend shared with me a photo of her dog at her desk, I knew that I had to paint it. This book worm has his reading list stacked up for the season.
Portraits, be they of a person, pet, or even a landscape, are a tunnel into the soul of the subject, capturing the personality and essence of it. I am a painter dedicated to honoring that essence through my art. I was born and raised in Idaho, growing up exploring back country areas, taming and “loving on” every feral cat on the farm, and playing hide-and-go-seek with my dogs in the corn fields. My art connects the viewer to the soul of the subject with the most fragile yet enduring heart string.
