Oh my goodness! I surprised ABC7 anchor Julie Wright live on Good Morning Washington with her own pet portrait. Julie was going to interview me about how healing my pet portraits are to owners who've lost their pets, but I had heard she, too, had recently lost her dog so I decided to paint her a portrait in the weeks leading up to the segment. Watch Julie's reaction as she unwraps her surprise custom painting of her [...]

I love taking my clients and followers, behind the scenes of how each pet comes alive on canvas. Many share how much they enjoy following along in real time via Instagram or Facebook and others prefer the monthly inspirational email (sign up for a chance to win $100 studio credit in our monthly drawing) for a quick summary for a few links to deep dive. Lucy's pet portrait is a german shepherd and chow mix I recently [...]

The Making of Linn’s Bridal Bouquet

Don't you love a good secret? I kept this painting a secret for over a year and once I started working on it it was difficult not to share at least a couple of photos (I knew the client follows me on social media). Instead of sharing the actual painting, I did the second best think and shared a photo of myself with Lola in the background while working on it, and while picking up a few new [...]

The making of Luke

Darling Luke was such a wonderful dog to paint. It was the third portrait this client ordered from me and the first dog, her pride and joy. She had rescued him when he was a little wee one and at the time I painted his portrait, he was 16 years. Sadly he passed away shortly after the painting was complete, and the painting, which was ordered to be a tribute to his long and beautiful life, is now [...]

Here are a few behind the scenes photos from when I created Yellow Ranunculus, which is Painting No 1 in the Spring Art Auction 2013. Maybe this quick iphone photo of it better captures the lovely feel it has? Sure it's bold and colorful but it's also quiet lovely. Very organic. A modern take on an English garden flower. This is how I spent my time creating it - with the actual bouquet right next to me. See [...]
