Featured Artist & Exhibit of Sanctuary One Animal Paintings – Ashland Art Center, June 1 – 30, 2012

I’m the featured artist at the Ashland Art Center for the month of June, which includes a special exhibit of my Sanctuary One animal paintings. The painting I’ve posted here is of Sparky – he and his son, Junior, are available for adoption at the Sanctuary, and he was our “mascot ” for the 3rd Annual Bachelor Auction and Cinco de Mayo Celebration benefiting Sanctuary One this year! If you are in Ashland for First Friday (June 1), drop in, see the exhibit, and visit me in  Studio 3 – I’m working on a new Sanctuary One painting of a cow, with polka dots in the background – I can’t seem to get away from those 🙂  As always, there will be food, wine and live music – The Ashland Art Center was recently voted the best place to go for First Friday!

Most Recent Commissons – Annie and Yogi

These two images are my most recent commission – portraits of Annie and Yogi; we think they are a Lhasa Apso/Basset Hound mix, from the same parents , even though they were adopted from the shelter at different times. They are so sweet together and it’s so wonderful that they are now part of the same family!

New Prints At Sanctuary One, Jacksonville, OR

I visited Sanctuary One again on Thursday to change out my original paintings for framed prints. The originals will soon be on show at the Starbucks in downtown Ashland for 3 months…there has been a bit of a delay on hanging the originals due to their remodel, but they should be up by sometime next week! Here is a photo of the newly framed prints. These will soon also be listed in my Etsy store; however, if you purchase them through the sanctuary directly, you can write them a tax-deductible check for 20% of the purchase price and another check for 80% to me – so they get a 20% donation vs the 10% I usually provide them – a win-win all the way around!

Blog Post from Ashland Creek Press……

Very fun feature in the Ashland Creek Press blog.  This is my painting of Theo, their General Manager. He looks a bit hardened from all his years in the industry 🙂 I’ve been having fun stalking him as he does have his own Facebook page. I changed my personal avatar to this painting of Theo – which I titled “You Looking at Me?”

Newest Sanctuary One Pig Painting – Lulu

I just finished this painting of Lulu on Friday. Of course, her eyes aren’t quite this big, but I thought it makes her look just a tad bit cuter, so I just did it – after a long and hesitant struggle with myself…and painting them small again and then changing them back….just a bit of artistic license that I rarely let myself get away with:)
