Hello, friends!
Here is one of the many portraits I did in the year 2010. While I was working on the huge hotel project, I did receive and fulfilled many commissioned pet portraits. I know Bevo is not a personal pet to some, but to some he is "Everything"! To my fellow University of Texas Alums, friends and supporters, I present you with Bevo XIV. This painting is in the private collection of one of the most prominent Texas Exes!

A very playful guy! Capturing this shot was fun! I got down on the floor with this adorable guy and we had fun playing chase with his favorite toy, the "red ball"!

"That's Not My Dog"

This baby was my final "That's Not My Dog".  The first time I painted her, I realized she was the wrong size, then I painted her again, thinking she looked just like her cute self.  The owner came to pick her up and said "That's not my dog!".  It really was.  She went home, checked the photo she had e-mailed me.  I could feel her face turning red.  Anyway, this is "Roxy", and it is the right pet!

"One Special Guy"

                            12 x 12


Commissioned for a Christmas gift to a sister.  This was one of my favorites, one blue eye and one chocolate brown.  I recently finished his brother, "Rags", who died recently to go right along next to him.

Little "Ozzie" was the friend and companion to a lovely lady named Pat.  She adored him, but lost him and missed him.  I was commissioned by one of my fellow studio painters to paint this for her special friend.  When she gave it to her, she cried.  That's when I know I've captured not only the look, but the soul of a pet.

Most folks are scared of Doberman's.  This one happens to be very calm and loved by her owner.  Very sleek and beautiful!
