A few more miscellaneous paintings.  These were for a show at a coffee shop and two weeks in, they closed their doors. 😯 Very sad indeed, they had great coffee!

Pet Portraits!  Here are a couple handsome pups I've painted recently.  One for a gift and the other for a commission.

I haven't posted new work in a long time.  I have been painting though, when ever I get the time.  Here are a few new pieces.

This is Sunny, one of the sweetest dogs I know.  I painted his portrait during a class with Kat Corrigan at Wet Paint in St. Paul.  Pets are really fun to paint.  They make great subjects.

Evolution of a Chair

This chair came to our house in really bad shape. It was nicked, scratched and smelled like smoke (don't get me started on the old upholstery).  I sanded it, and used a home recipe of chalk paint then went to work on the cushions. I had some left over fabric from a drum shade that I'd just made so I think I have about $15.00 into the cost of materials.  Hope you like! (P.S. On this piece I used a coat of polyurethane instead of wax.)
