Landscapes Look Better with Trees

This is a painting from last year - one of the few oil paintings I've done. Happy Arbor Day everyone!

Holding on to joy...

My dog Dusty has taught me so many lessons throughout his life. Now in what looks to be the final part of his time here he continues to teach me. He doesn't know about what the vet says but continues to live each moment with the exact same joy he has lived every other moment of his life. I hope that I can mirror his example as I walk through the rest of my days.

Palm Springs Pepper

This is Pepper - a charming little guy that I met while visiting my friend Sandy in Palm Springs. The other friend that I went with commissioned this painting to give to her as a gift. It was really fun to remember this sweet dog as I've spent the past few nights painting him.

Not a cat person...

A little weeknight sketch of my brother in law who is obviously "not a cat person" :)

Skagit Field

Originally I was going to go to a wedding today - but my soul needed to I painted.

Ode to Skagit Valley

Yesterday I went to the tulip fields - many of them had already been harvested but we found the last few that still had tulips and this was one of them...
