This isn't a painting, but maybe some day it will be. It is a close up shot of the window from the cabin we stayed in while visiting the Northwoods in Wisconsin. Needless to say, it was very cold for snow mobiling and cross country skiing. But we prevailed. The temperature one night was -18...and that was without the windchill.  Mother Nature has a beautiful way of painting her canvas in the winter. Need to take lessons from her.

"Titan Bear" 6x6 inch oil on gessoboard

This is a painting that I did for my nephew and his wife. It is a portrait of "Titan Bear." Titan is a mix of Chihuahua, Dachshund and Italian Greyhound. He has the head of a Chihuahua, the legs of an Italian Greyhound and the perkiness of a Dachshund. He was a "rescue" from southern California. He is adorable, all 8 pounds of him. Yes, 8.

"Ally" 8x8 inch oil on gessoboard

This is a portrait of "Ally" my daughter and son-in-law's Greater Swiss Mountain dog. At one time she was a show dog and her formal name is Alameda. She is 90+ pounds and a real sweetheart. Loves people and loves to be petted. She is a herding dog and is very strong. They are teaching her to pull a cart and they hope that by the summer she can pull a set of golf clubs around the course!
