You love your animals. I love you! Want me to paint them?
Miss Oprah Winfrey
The late Reign belonged to a friend of mine, Freedom. As you can see, he was such a sweet, great boy.
Oh, the regal Pinky... have you ever seen a dog with such good posture?
Moose is owned by my friends Haji & Nicole, and loves to eat and chase corn hole bags. He has bat ears and is pretty amazing.
Fritz is the first fluffy dog I ever painted and the first time I ever used gesso as a texturing agent - totally changed the way I paint!
This guy was my friend Stevie's best buddies dog who passed away last year; I was really happy with how the blues & greens turned out with this one.
Much to my surprise, the real Lola turned out to actually be smaller than the painting!
Oh look at little Nanette; she is quite the little lady and resides in Ohio with her moms!
Dear, sweet Penny passed away a little while back, and was lovingly owned by the amazing Kay. She was such a joy to paint, and she was such a special dog!
Gracie is a member of the Rutherford clan, one of my favorite families (and long-time supporters/listeners of Funemployment Radio!) here in Portland - she is so adorable.
Kirk's family dog just passed away recently; this is the painting he got for his wife of their favorite picture of him
Sasha is the dog of a dear friend of mine named Heather! I made this for Heather a few years ago for Christmas, hence why the signature is so prominent in the bandana. Every time I see his little face I still think of this picture; it's one of my favorites!
This is Major who just passed away recently; he is very missed by his mom Sheri.
This was one of the more bizarrely-angled paintings I've ever done, and it was so much fun! A big adorable wrinkly dog sleeping in the sun named Jethro? I mean, come on.
Luscious was quite the fancy lady, and lived in Las Vegas with her owner Carlotta. She really really liked her tutu. (Luscious, not Carlotta... unless they had matching tutu's I have no awareness about)
