February 8, 2010

Spent the greater part of last week in Florida, where upon, my brother finally returned a sketchbook that I had left in his truck several years ago.  It’s like catching up with a long-lost friend.  Here’s what I was drawing on 5-16-06.

A sleeping Vayda-monkey, that is.

Mystery Pups

…a sneak peek at my drafting table…I soooo love painting furry babies!

He may be the last to post, but he was the first of four French Bulldog commissions to come my way this year.  Just look at those ears!  I absolutely adore him!

K-9 Officer Bull

January 15, 2010

I was sooooo excited to take on this commission.  Why?  Because it comes from a long-lost friend (we haven’t seen or heard of each other in say…15 years?!?)  who also happens to be marrying a K-9 Cop!  Jill gave me great freedom with this piece, and when I found the green patterned paper, I knew exactly how I wanted it all to play out…Thanks Jill!  It was tons of fun to work on this project, and even better to reconnect with you!

The son of a Westminster contender, he’s quite the charmer!

2 more French Bulldogs

I  think I’m destined to have one someday…although, I’m sure Ms. Vayda would not approve.

Merry (almost) Christmas!

December 19, 2009

Nick and I are closing shop and enjoying time with friends and family!  We’ll be back soon with a bevy of goodness to share…and after all the presents are opened and surprises unveiled, a ton of new work to post to this poor idle blog.  Wishing you all a warm and wonderful Holiday Season, and of course, thanks to all of you who have allowed us to have such a great year!

Mystery Pet Portrait

November 20, 2009

Tis the season for custom Pet Portraits and Pen & Inks! I love the hustle and bustle this time of year, the steady stream of work in the studio, the variety of subject matter, reuniting with old clients, and meeting new ones…it’s an exciting time…the only downside, is having to keep everything top-secret until after Christmas…so here’s a sneak peek of a mystery pup in progress…don’t you just love that patterned paper?   …and those giant ears!
