A gift of a very dear friend and that amazing smile.  Whose life would not be brighter with this face around!

This is a memorial of a great jumper.  One of the set I did recently.  Commissioned but not actually paid for.... but a great horse no less

This horse has such amazing personality!  Henrich is his real name, but Ricky is how sweet he is!!
Another that is awaiting payment.  If you happen to see him, let me know....there is unfinished business.

This was a loving gift as a memory for a little pug who had to leave this world recently.  Hopefully his owner will have nothing but sweet dreams of his memory.

Lost Masterpiece!

As confused as my studio is, I try hard to at least keep thing in GROUPS... but looking for some framing materials I cam across an old sketch book and between the white pages this fell out!   A pastel, 9x13".  When I die, remember to look through my old sketchbooks please!

Tango is reputed to be one of the most wonderful giant schnauzer on earth.  There is something about the way his whiskers lay on the carpet that makes me believe them!

More of those ENORMOUS dogs with hard feet.  Okay I am going to be sneaking in more of my western portraits.  Anything with eyeballs these days.  This is the second of four in a family I have done.  Well, it is the second of the SECOND.  A terrible accident befell the original (earlier in the blog) and this is the redo.  Although the client understood the first one was not my problem, that the work was done and the destruction their fault, there seems to still be some issues with compensation.  That aside, this is a wonderful horse and I don't hold it against him.

Santos by the Pool

This dog was so sweet, he deserved two memorials.  This is his favorite hang out, in the chair by the pool.

Kia the Mini Pup

I was invited to demo at the Fiesta Cluster Dog show this week in Scottsdale Arizona.  This is my little miniature Miniature Schnauzer model Kia.  Apparently she is much older in person.
