"Luna" oil on hardboard 6x6" sold

A friend of mine raises these beauties.  She procured this as a gift for another owner.  I can't wait to hear what they thought!

I just finished this piece about 2 weeks ago.  I think it's about 16x24.  I KNOW the photo isn't as good as the painting and I know even more that the painting doesn't come close to being as wonderful as this cat was.  He died in his sleep last night.

"Of Another Land" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping

This young man is not one of Ross' work study students.  He was just a tag along one day.  The two of them were trying to study together while taking care of the gallery.  When I say study I really mean study!  It was serious math and they were all business.  I was so impressed by their work ethic.

"the Refugee" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping

My husband curates the gallery at the college where he works.  All of his work study students are from Iran.  This young man is marvelous.  During gallery openings he and I sit and chat once my feet get too tired to greet visitors.  Certainly has given me a new insight into his country.

in progress

I have a soft spot for this breed.  We had one when I was in high school.  Smart dogs!  I can't believe the soulful eyes on this little love.  He is a commission for a family I met during our open studio tour last month.  I think they'll be pleased.

"50%" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping

This was one of those paintings that never said "quit".  At some point you just have to stop paintng and hope.  Now that its posted and I see it outside of the studio I think it works quite well.  Of course, with that adorable subject matter how could you go wrong?!?!

"The Eyes Have It" oil on masonite 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping

Wow! this didn't play out like I expected.  Before I began I thought the black, white and gray would be an insurmountable problem.  It never occurred to me that the eyes could carry the entire piece.  The more dogs I paint the more I look forward to painting the next one.  It will be interesting to see how it changes my human portraits.

"Atmospheric Conditions" oil on board 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping

I was driving home one day and saw this amazing silhouette.  Somehow the birds appeared to be mocking the people below in their automobiles.

"Sure Shot" oil on board, 5x7" $99 + shipping

This image is on my site twice.  There is a reason but it is too long and boring to explain.
My fabulous neighbor loaned me one of his cameras from his collection.  There were so many to pick from it was really difficult.  Strong geometric shapes are not my forte so forgive the odd "circles".
