For an artist, can there be a better subject matter? They're all characters! They make us laugh, don't hold grudges and are always there with a wag of the tail and a kiss on the hand to make everything alright. I love to hear each owner tell their story about their loyal friends and what makes them so endearing. It's my passion to capture not only the unique look of each pet but to capture the special relationship that it brings to the owners.
I started out to be an artist and I somehow found myself not drawing or painting anymore. What I found myself doing was a lot of clicking and complaining doing commercial graphic design. With the help of my wife, Diana, I was fortunate to have been successful enough to be able to move to our vacation home on a permanent basis after both of our kids were in college. And more importantly, I was able to re-kindle my love of creating. I started doing watercolors and some acrylic paintings when I was asked by a local studio to do a large piece. I hadn't worked on anything larger than 12" x 18" for years. I really enjoyed the experience of working on a larger scale and have stayed with the larger format pretty much ever since. Again, thanks for checking out my web site... I hope you enjoy the art. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Currently showing at the Ann Jacobs Gallery in Highlands North Carolina. You can see more samples at www.dog-painting-artist.com
