A Not-So-Silent Auction

"Valentine IV," 4" square, acrylics on panel, gorgeously framed and wired, ready to hang.

This painting is being auctioned off RIGHT NOW via Facebook** with half the proceeds going to my favorite shelter, the Oakland Pet Adoption Center. (Actually, I'll tell you a secret - all I want to do is cover my framing costs, and then the rest is going to go to the shelter.)

Place your bids here. But hurry, because bidding ends at 6pm EST tomorrow, January 16th, 2013.

Thanks for playing along.

And if you want to talk about commissioning something extra special - email me and we can talk.

**You DO NOT have to have a Facebook account to view the auction, but you do need to have one in order to place a bid.

I cleaned out my painting storage this morning and found the little treasure above. It seemed serendipitous to unearth a heart shaped dog tag this close to Valentines Day.

The universe was telling me to do something special with this one.

So here you go - bid on this gem, support animals in need, and possibly get the best Valentines gift ever.

Thank you in advance!
Kim, who's already had to pinkie promise Her Better Half that she won't bring home a kitten with this donation, too

Yes, that is copper paint reflecting the studio lights on the horse's shoulder, and yes, that is a silvery haze around her face. Because starlight sparkles. Just like you.

paintings with soul
because our world needs more beauty
"The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)," 16" x 20" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the side, so no need to frame unless you wish. And yes, that glow you see in the image is gold paint reflecting the light - this piece will move and shimmer as you pass by. She is $649 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquire directlyto me- I accept personal checks, paypal, venmo and will arrange payment plans.

This Medicine Hat painting is number 13, so of course that association alone had me thinking about magic. If you love the company of equines, you know first hand the spells they cast. And that their magic lingers long after they have left.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my art journey,

30 Dogs 30 Days - Pink Chihuahua

My very first Dog a Day painting, Pink, a little 4" x 5" panel, private collection (THANK YOU!). This is where things really began to take off. But let's go back in time a little first.

It's 2006. I had been creating larger than life sized pet portraits for about 5 years, selling them online (via ebay and my website). I was a little disillusioned, always moving from one commission to another, with little time for continued learning or experimentation (entirely my own fault). In October I decided to carve out a small window of time each day for just myself. An hour to push paint without any expectation but to have fun. I builta blogas a dedicated space to record my efforts, because I love to compartmentalize everything. Yes, everything. My Inner Marketer thought I should dovetail the daily project with the studio in some way, to further drive traffic tomy websitevia keywords, regular updates and context similar content - so I chose to focus on dog portraits.
