GQ Cannoli


GQ Cannoli
acrylics on 4"x4" stretched canvas

I do not own a dog. I love them but I do not have to patience to care for one. I am more a cat person. BUT I would grab Cannoli in a quick minute. This is my sister's dog and he is the sweetest animal in the world. When I visit he sleeps right next to me and makes me feel safe. Although, he wouldn't hurt a soul. Ally, my sister, and I have often thought Cannoli is our departed mother. We think she left heaven and inhabits Cannoli to keep an eye on us. Love you, Cannoli.

Doc


Doc
6"x6" acrylics on stretched canvas

This is a friend I made while on a walk at Hilton Head. His owner was kind enough to let me take a pic. I painted this before for a lady who was along for the walk. I decided to do Doc again in acrylics. A very handsome dog, don't you think?

Merry Amaryllis


Merry Amaryllis!
Acrylics on 6.5"x6.5" watercolor paper

I got an amaryllis bulb for Christmas and assembled it as instructed in a tall clear glass tube vase with black rocks on the bottom. The plant turned me into a kid at Christmas again! I looked at it every day wondering when it would bloom. When the bright red petals appeared I was not disappointed. Beautiful! Had to take lots of pictures and then paint it. Love it!

This scene comes from good friend, Yvette's garden. She works hard to make her plants look great. I always leave with good pics. What a proud watering can!

Perfect Landing

Perfect Landing
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper 7.5"x5.5"

It was like it was all planned on purpose. I aimed my camera on this flower and before I depressed the button, this bee floated down and landed just as I took the picture. Yes, it was a perfect landing.

Hello Folly!


Hello, Folly!
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

I am not a big fan of football. Super Bowl is on and I watch the commercials. During the game I paint. This is Wes and Lindsey's dog, Folly. I am warming up to her and hope to do a better painting of her later.
