Meet Cody Gould

He is an adorable pit bull who defies all of the hoopla about pit bulls.  Sweet, adorable, kind.

The assignment was to use textures on paper, and then paint abstractly.
This horse emerged out of nowhere and took over my painting.  
It is difficult to see the textures on the paper, but there are many.  
Again, different from my usual "style", whatever THAT is, but really interesting and fun to paint.

The Bowman Ladies
MacKenzie and Drew Bowman are darling little girls.  I sketched this for Martha, their Mother,'s birthday. 

Jack Rabbit

I enjoy painting animals, as most of you already know.  So here is a watercolor on paper, Mr. Jack Rabbit.  This was painted in a very traditional method, using no white paints, and transparent watercolor.  He is a handsome dude and is waiting to come by at Easter time!!

Tula's Baby

I am totally committed to supporting Dog Shelters and other select charities.   
So two times a month, I paint someone's doggie or kitty 
so that their check goes directly to the charity.
This doggie is called "Tula's Baby."

Desert Tree So Full of Life....

A Palo Verde Tree is a very cool tree. 
 It photosynthesizes throughout its green bark, as well as in it's leaves.  It is gnarled and tangles within itself, making is a puzzle to follow and enjoy.  This little gem grows not far from our home here is sunny Carefree, AZ.  

Big Kitty

Here is a page from my sketchbook (you can see the upper left hand side has rings in it). 
 I saw this cat and something he did just made me stare and stare at him.  I had to sketch him.  What attitude!  No wonder they call him the King of the Jungle!
