Painting Things That Move...Or That Move Me

12x12 inch     Oil on Museum Quality Panel SOLD

"Susie" was a commission I completed on a beautiful black lab.  This was a special piece, because my client happened to be someone I had known and babysat for when I was in high school.  Many years later, through the power of social media, she found out I was an artist and commissioned this piece for her husband.  I had so much fun working on this painting and reconnecting with a wonderful lady!

I'm working on another commission now, but as for now, I have to keep it under wraps.'s a secret!

If you would like your favorite memory or pet captured in paint, please send me a note about a commission:)!
