Dog portrait

I just finished this piece from a photo by Helene Rush.  I love how the light bounced off his back and highlighted his face.  The painting is available at  I am now accepting pet commissions again. See my page above on Pet Portraits for prices and details on how to commission your painting.

I was very happy to learn that I was juried into a Federation of Canadian artists show in Vancouver coming up in May - Crossing Boundries - The Beauty of Canada.  This is the painting that was accepted.

Cold Wax and oil

I feel like a kid in a candy store!  An order of art supplies just arrived and I got to play with a new medium - cold wax.  I absolutely love using this!  The wax turns the oil paint into this creamy, lumeniscent delicious stuff that glides on the panel so wonderfully.  This is my first painting using cold wax but it certainly won't be my last.  I can't wait to get started on some more!
