This is Pearl, Punkey's sister. Cats have such a great personality. It is fun to capture each one in paint.

Naples Botanical Garden 509

A beautiful, bright, sunny day in Naples, Florida. I was lucky enough to be in the botanical garden with my paints when this scene appeared.

Heads Up

Florida is full of beautiful flowers. One of my favorites is the Hibiscus. They are interesting from all angles.

Sunny Side Up

When sunflowers are my subject, I like to paint them from all angles. This beauty is facing almost directly into the light. A very unusual positioning for me.

The Back Side - 491

I find that the back side of a flower can be very interesting and good subject matter for a painting. I hope you fine it interesting as well.

I think Sunflowers are one of the happiest flowers in the garden. They have big, bold faces and have such beautiful colors. Plus I can usually fine a nice bunch in the market.

My Buddy

This is Marley, our rescue dog. He is with me in the studio whenever I am painting. I just love how his bottom teeth stick out. Is that an overbite or an under bite? Anyway, he is a doll.
