Beautiful Brutus

Check out Brutus in his frame! The client decided on a double mat, one to bring out the colour in his eyes, the other to bring out the colour in the water. Unfortunately Brutus is no longer with us, but this is a great way for him to be remembered. I think he looks awesome!! Share if you like.

Nina & Ranger ~ A surprise Christmas gift

Nina & Ranger ...... Just one of my graphite pencil portraits commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift, and that had to be kept a secret until now. I can't wait to receive a photograph of the portrait when it is up in it's frame!

Colour Pencil Portrait of Brutus

Here is the portrait I have been working on for the last few months. It is a second portrait of Brutus, the black lab mix I had drawn in graphite pencil earlier in the year. It is the largest colour pencil portrait to date, 10 x 20 inch, and the first time I have attempted to draw water in this medium. I love taking photos of the work in progress and I thought I would share them.

My first outdoor art show this year was the Gallery on the Green in Litchfield CT. I had a great response to my artwork, particularly to my color pencil bird portraits, and I’m happy to say my original color pencil Eagle Owl portrait found a good home.

It's been a while since I have posted on here. Having a baby at the end of last year and moving house earlier this year didn't leave me much time for my artwork. Things are a little easier now and I was finally able to find the time for an art show and a couple of graphite pencil commissions. The first portrait is of an 11 year old black lab called Rufus and the second is a black lab mix called Brutus. Both portraits were given as fathers day gifts.
