Sparky 5 x 7 oil on board, sold

Such a sweet little girl.  I could eat her up!  And she's 11-12 in this painting.  So pretty.

How nice this would look on an end table or in a bookshelf.  (I didn't have a frame to fit, so I put it in this 6 x 6 frame and cropped the photo to give her owners a feeling of it framed.)

Seaside Walk

Seaside Walk 16" x 16, mixed media on canvas

As we are in the middle of winter, memories of a warm stroll on the beach come to mind.  Hope you're staying warm and cozy.   I'm working on a series of beach paintings to hang, so this won't be for sale.

How to keep your dog off your Living Room couch.

Oh yes, our sweet, innocent, pooch would jump up on our white Living Room couch and chew on the back pillows when we were not at home. So much so that the corner of each pillow was gone.

To remedy this, I bought a plastic runner, the kind that your mom used years ago to protect the carpet in high traffic areas, from Home Depot and turned it upside down on the couch.  I measured the couch width and than bought an extra foot so I could tuck it into the sides.

Yay, I got my chance to remake the pillow covers and they still look beautiful.  And I just took it off at Christmas and hid it behind the couch when we had people over.  (It's just husband sat on it while we were chatting with some friends.)

Did the trick for me!

****UPDATE: I had this on for about 1 year and I removed it for some company and don't have a need to put it back.  He remembers now that he doesn't like it and stays off the couch.   YAY!

"Tasha" 8 x 10,  oil on canvas, for sale

Another beautiful dog I had the opportunity of painting for Christmas was Kat's dog, "Tasha".   You might recognize the son of Katrina, "Kat's Eye View of the World".  I love that picture.  This one's for sale.

The holidays are a big season for gift giving, and I painted this little dachshund for a friend of mine.

It's amazing the quality of some phone photos.  Sweet Cookie is always so happy to see me.
