Sunoco & Lucky Dog | Christmas Ornaments


Lucky Dog

These pups are both rescues. Sunoco is an American Akita and Lucky Dog is an Akita Inu (Japanese Akita). I've been told that they are loving their new home and their people love them. They both have their own personality and it shines through in their eyes.

Holly | Watercolor Painting


12" x 12" 
Watercolor, 2015

I do love going out to HyTyme Drum Horses and visiting with them, especially in the heat of summer. I go after work and arrive about 2 hours before sunset and it's cool there, with the warm smell of horses.

This is Holly. She is the mother of Epic. Holly is a little bit smaller than the other Drum Horses, but just as beautiful. The sun is low and she is gently backlit by dusk while finding crunchy grass in the middle of summer.

This painting is one of many that I created for my 2015 Solo Art Show: Western Gold.

Multnomah Falls in the Fall

Night falls quickly in Oregon now ...

I left a little early from work on day to chase a waterfall in the brisk November evening. I just headed up the historic highway and meandered through the golden clothed trees. I spontaneously stopped at Multnomah Falls. Usually I avoid Multnomah Falls like the plague because 95% of the time it is overrun by tourists. But not this particular evening. The daylight was fading and the temperature made me want to curl up with a cozy blanket and good book in front of a fireplace.
