I think the Christmas spirit is coming!

Today I was in the park and was shooting some more sample dogs, but it worked out that curiosity was almost as potent as the paintings. I have two who were excited about the price and although I didn't get a deposit, I think this may be a sale.
I will put red dots on the commissions and sold pieces.
This little guy is named PUMA.

So, they paint one a day, eh?

I am a portrait painter and I have a very hard time figuring out how to market and produce work to a wider audience. For years I have donated to charities and contacted rescue groups and done a relatively nice bit of business.

This season, with the economy the way it is, I have toyed with the "Painting a Day" concept. But frankly, I am not that into fruit and kitchen tools. I am becoming the artist in residence in our local dog parks out here in Scottsdale Arizona so I am going to offer my demos for sale on the site, in the same spirit as the other "painting a day" gang.

Because I am new to this, I am going to show and sell my 5x7" mini portrait samples. They are actual watercolor paintings in simple mats that fit in an 8x10" standard frame.

I charge $85 for commissions this size so lets begin that way!

Email me back and we can work through paypal or checks.

OF COURSE I am available for commissions, human and pets!

Lets get going with my first of the crew. A little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel..
