This was a good friend of Schultz whose memorial was a few pictures down.  It is a sad holiday season when good friends leave so close together, but at least they can frolic in Pup heaven.

A great old dog with a patient soul.  Gift and NOT a memorial.  I love it when they get to have both the picture and the pup!

Little Ginger

A quick commission, based on a previous Schnoodle from years ago.  I suggested they get an original, but most of the pieces not marked sold are indeed for sale!

Although the reference was two years old, my demonstration for a rescue group was a winner as the model even showed up! 10x10" mighty but smallish.

Bella's Bubbles

One of my favorite rescue groups is for Giant Schnauzers.  This is one of their happy celebrants!  A great Christmas gift to deliver this weekend.

A Perfect Dog

I admit it.  I forgot her name.  This is a little friend of a commission I did last year.  I had the opportunity to demonstrate and this photo jumped out at me.

A Shiba Inu

Never saw markings like this! At first I thought a husky until I was told the size and looked closer. Pretty nifty guy!

I hope I helped. This is a great little memorial of a very noble mini schnauzer who died a year ago Good Friday. She was a very special girl. Her mom misses her a lot.

This Persian princes was a gift from a group of friends to ease the loss.

A few years ago I did 6 contemporary portraits of a family's dogs. All but one were just memories so the owners decided it was time enlarge the album and add the two newest members to the family wall. These are 18" wrapped canvas oil paintings

Ms Liberty (again)

Sometimes a dog needs a lot of love. I have painted Libby a couple of times. More human, less undaunted... are dogs human?

As you can see from the well loved face, Granite had been very loved and will be very missed.

After a good cry, I delivered this to a client. Holly left the world a week or so before her picture came to replace her in her very loving friend's home.

Third Pup, Traveling.

The older of the poodles was a real challenge. Whitest dog ever! Hope they like them when they arrive, which should be some time tonight while I sleep!

A Trio Going Abroad!

I just finished three gifts for a client who is taking all three of my next puppies on a trip to Thailand! After things dried out from the flood, they are bound for happy homes (hopefully drier!) The first poodle puppy:
