Riko is Dexter and Debra's (my last two kitty portraits) feathered sibling. It was fun to paint feathers, and that eyeball, oh my!

Beach Day

I love going to the beach. Walking on the sand, swimming in the salt water and having lunch with my handsome sun worshiper.

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.

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.

Happy

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.
