Exploring RED Exhibition

I am happy to have these two paintings included in a group theme invitational exhibit at Horne Fine Art from February 3 – March 14, 2015. There are works from over 18 artists in styles from traditional to abstract in the show. It was a pleasure to meet new artists and see some familiar friends at the opening night event. All of the artists wore red that night so it was shades of crimson all around!

Pet Portrait Commissions for Wasatch Advisors

Recently, I was commissioned to paint some pet portraits and wanted to share them with you. I really enjoyed painting these beloved cats and dogs and I would love to do more!

These paintings were part of a cool project for Wasatch Advisors’ corporate office called the “People’s Pet Project” and I was one of nine artists commissioned. I painted three of the 23 pet portraits. A charitable contribution was presented to Best Friends Animal Society by the good people of Wasatch Advisors. Now these wonderful paintings are part of the Wasatch Advisors’ corporate art collection where they can be enjoyed every day.
