Flowers from Alex

Flowers from Alex
6"x6"x3/4" acrylics on stretched canvas

Nothing says I love you like flowers. I never tire of receiving them. I try to paint them as soon as possible before they wilt. Unlike live models, they do not need breaks and they do not need to be paid. 

Thank you, Alex. You are the best daughter in the world.

In Memory of Peanut

Acrylics on 12"x18" stretched canvas

This was painted for my sister who still mourns the loss of her sweet dog, Peanut. Peanut was very gentle and protective of sis and her partner and two daughters. She was huge in size and heart. I miss her too. It's not the same visiting my sister and not having Peanut nose my hand. I hope the painting helps to heal the loss and replace it with wonderful memories for you, Allyson. I love you, sis.

Met this guy outside a condo sunning on a leaf at Maui. I loved his bright coloring. Beautiful creature on a beautiful island.
