My dogs are such great models, I love to follow them around the yard with my camera. This is my baby girl, Train. I love the graceful curve of her neck. She is as beautiful as a fairy tale.

I'm so pleased with this Borzoi painting. Below are some work in progress shots, from underpainting to finish.

Sara is a commissioned painting of a lovely white Podenco with one blue eye, a very beautiful, and enjoyable feature to paint.

This is a bittersweet commissioned portrait of a beautiful and much loved greyhound who recently passed away. I wanted this painting to have a sense of peace about it, and I hope it brings his family comfort.
