Dog Days

 This is the time of year when labs do what they like best -  swim! Although it really doesn't have to be summer, labs love to get wet and muddy any time of year!

Play With Me

This is my stepson's sweet dog, Asia, who visits us from time to time. I love having her visits, she is such a nice presence in the house, especially since I lost my own dog Jade last November.

Fergus


One of 3 Boxer portraits that I have been commissioned to do.

Fergus was a wonderful girl that I walked for many years. She was sweet and good natured and loved to lie on her back and sun her belly. She passed away a few years ago, and her owners asked me to paint this picture.

Love you and miss you, little girl.

Gulls on Ice2

These gulls look like they are standing on water, but there is a thin layer of ice on the lake, and some of the gulls catch some rays there on the last days of winter.

University Sunset 2

I did a similar one from a photo taken at the same time (bad driving practice, taking photos while driving!). This one is slightly larger, and a different crop.

Storm Clearing

Facing west on Lakeshore Blvd. in Toronto, there was a dramatic clearing of a rainstorm. I couldn't resist photographing it. One day I will get in trouble for distracted driving!
