The Carousel

What do you do when the router is working?  The same thing as when it’s out!

Patrons ride a coorful merry go round at an amusement park.

The theme of my last painting was Emotion.  This one is Happy Memory.  Originally I had wanted to create this painting using impasto and a knife, but the picture kept fighting back until it turned out this way.

Are you done now?  It’s soooo boring when you work.

Toby really, really, really didn’t like me working on this picture.  He positively exhausted himself with all of the stuff he shredded in disapproval.

What To Do When The Router’s Out?

Oil painting of Mom trying to embarrass teen boy by kissing him in front of his girlfriend.

I decided to do a painting!

I haven’t been able to paint since Toby was a puppy.  Shortly after he came here he developed a UTI which led to potty training issues which were replaced by him turning into a naughty dog who loves to play chase more than he likes being good.

This time, though, Toby surprised me by being a little sweetie and lying on the floor beside me while I worked.  Like his brother, though, he likes to be where I put the lid to my Masterson.  I guess it is inevitable that I will have puppies with colorful fur.

Kitty Pictures


Watercolor painting of cat

If you would like a kitty picture of your very own, (sans the Bitey Dog mark, of course) let me know!  Maybe I can help.

Click to visit the Pet Portraits section of my shop.   There you will find instructions and pricing guidelines.  I have examples given for oils and pencils, but I am finding that when I view a customer’s pet photos, sometimes a different medium seems better such as the water colors for this little kitty.

You could order a picture of your own pet, or you could present a loving tribute to a friend who has lost a beloved companion.  Whether for yourself or for a friend the gift of art is one that is always appreciated.
