Anyone who knows me, knows I have a special attachment to this girl. She's show me more strength and grace, than many people in my life. She was a great frisbee dog but now doesn't let the fact that she can only use a cart to get around bring her down. So when it was time to choose the subject of my first watercolor on canvas painting I knew who was going to be the subject. 





Artist in Training

Last week I had the pleasure of heading to California to see one of my favorite people in the whole world, Jessica. Jess and I became friends when we were 14. She was there for all my important high school memories, and was a great encouragement along the way, always believing in me, even when I questioned myself. Just as importantly I got to spend time with her beautiful daughter, Cali. Watch out art world, you will be seeing more of this very intelligent and creative girl!

Cali and I painting a watercolor at Chateau Montelana. For those of you who've seen Bottle Shock, this is the same winery. 

Loved Ones...

A close friend asked me to do a portrait for her aunt that lost a beloved friend. I was honored to get to do the painting. So this is for all the dear pets that have touched our lives...
