December 3 - "OTI" (Owner Turned In)



"OTI" This is a gallery-sized painting, scheduled for entry into the Art Show at the Dog Show. OTI means "owner turned in" and is a common notation on many dog's intake cards at the animal shelter. This young terrier mix may find a new home, but with so many animals needing adoption, the future for others is bleak. I recently adopted a cat from our shelter, and this dog would have come home with me, too, but for our other dogs. Not available for sale at this time. Original oil on linen, 16 x 12 inches.

December 1 - California Redwoods


The first of December, and I paint one of the world's oldest living things--a good thought during this holiday season, to remember how long these trees have been on our earth. Original oil, 7 x 3 inches, comes with its own frame in dark warm wood for $100.

Ocotillo in bloom in the desert of the Southwest. Familiar... and definitely cactus. Quite a switch from the beauty and ocean air of Catalina yesterday!

November 27 - Rolex Horse in Cross Country


I love to paint water. This is Rolex Kentucky, where the three-day eventers do dressage, cross country and show jumping in a marathon of action.
