Siblings Giclee

"Siblings," 12" x 14", acrylic on gallery stretched linen, depicting a litter of pit bull puppies, $799. A limited edition (25 only) of giclees on artists paper also available, image approximately 10" x 13", signed in pencil by the artist, $59. Proceeds from the sale of the original and the reproductions will be donated to my local shelter, the Oakland Pet Adoption Center. Inquiries may always come to me.

I am thrilled to share my latest limited edition reproduction, this one extra special because it supports animal welfare efforts.

Here in the US, we are on the cusp of our biggest shopping season ever.

I encourage you to consider original artwork as you begin making gift giving decisions. Local craft and artisan fairs, independently owned shops in your area, and online storefronts are a great starting point for locating original one of a kind gifts. All of my paintings available for purchase are listed on Etsy (returning collectors get 10% off the listed prices).

And when it comes time to send your greetings, consider ordering cards with a meaningful image like your pet's portrait or one of your favorite paintings from the Painting a Dog a Day project (visit my Imagekind shop to learn more about how easily we can coordinate this).

Directly supporting artists and artisans and spending your dollars locally is a gift itself - to the collective creative spirit and to your community's economy.

Finally, this last week I had a client regretfully release three December portrait spots - if you are interested in one, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can begin the necessary planning.

Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.

PS Have you gotten your copies of the Dog a Day books? Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year covers 2006-2007, and That's 14 in Dog Years covers 2008. Both titles can be previewed and ordered through the publisher by clicking on the book titles in the preceeding sentence. However, if you would like your copy personalized, you need to order through me. Monday, December 1st, is the final day that I can guarantee holiday delivery for personalized book orders.

Additional information on how to order each book is on the Painting a Dog a Day blogand the studio website.

Lashes and Corkscrews, Buckskin Horse

"Lashes and Corkscrews," 5" x 8", buckskin tobiano curly horse portrait, acrylic on board, $289 to the first taker. Do I see any hands? Inquires to . I really DID intend to paint today, but things got out of hand quickly. I think it was the Snickers bar breakfast that me going in the wrong direction right off the bat. Then the mid-morning helping of caramel corn followed by a Kit-Kat lunch.... straight downhill from there. For the last hour I have had my palette open and the brushes out, but trick-or-treaters are coming thick and heavy, and it's becoming very clear that I will NOT be finishing the sheltie paintings tonight (so sorry JB - they are coming, though!!). Instead I'll share with you a piece I did last week for an art competition. I won't find out about the juror's decision until December, but in the meanwhile, please enjoy Percy, my friend's new gelding. Isn't he a dear?! Be sure to make some time


"Dove 3," 11" x 14", acrylics and pencil on stonehenge paper, small white margin on edges (not pictured), $399 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come   to me . In between working on commissions, I am continuing my own learning via mentoring sessions with   Anne Siems . I'm also taking   an online workshop with Stanka Kordic.   This piece was a eureka sort of painting in that it begins to meld what I am trying to learn from both these extraordinary women. Someone asked me recently why I study with other artists. It's because I'm never fully satisfied with what I know how to do. There's always people better than me at something or another, and I want to try to peek inside their brain to figure out how they weave their magic. Then I can adapt that to my own goals and style. It would be boring to paint the same way, every day, for eternity. I want to evolve and grow. Always. (and if you feel the same way, maybe you want to   v
