Four Rotary Garden paintings

Below the paintings professionally framed...double mat, chrome frame (pinkish bronze in color)

A set of four miniature acrylic paintings of the Rotary Garden for my own house...again these where done a few years back. Since I'm organizing all my art, including paintings for myself...this is For Sale.

Monet-ish in style

As I was organizing my art, taking many out of their frames so that I'd have more room and less art clutter.
I arranged all my art according to medium and size, put them in acid-free folders and filed them into storage bins according to the sizes...sure is a good feeling to pack down in size. 
I did this quick painting a few years back and had forgotten all about it...I went to the Rotary Garden in town and painted Plein Air. I had a piece of cardboard and didn't want to throw it away because it looked good to paint on. 
Oddly enough, many Masters painted on cardboard and the paintings lasted to this much for acid-free.

A memory captured...on a Rock

My friend Dr.Pia Salk commissioned me to do a small painting for a friend of hers who is also involved working with Adopt-a-Pet. Her friend had just lost her own adopted/rescue dog, Ms.Estelle.

I added a pocket rock with Estelle's image, this can be carried in your pocket or purse always being with you.

Rocks with a design or pattern of texture

One of the things I like about painting rocks, are the ones with a design or pattern of texture were I can actually see the face or body of the animal I want to paint.
Here are several of these rocks...

Painting over a painting

I was cleaning my boxes with files of small paintings called "Sailing" it's an unfinished 5" x 5" acrylic...I was unsatisfied with the colors and style I used. Thinking of tossing it out I decided to paint over the same scene   using a limited palette and allowing some of the old color to come through.  To my surprise I liked the outcome with quick strokes and muted colors.

Plein Air painting in Paris

We visited Paris this year and I wanted to feel what the artist of days of old felt while sitting out and painting a Parisian scene. I sat in the famous Park and saw this scene, so I did a tiny acrylic painting of it... now I can say I did a Plein Air painting in Paris!

The Eiffel Tower image is a small preliminary painting, just messing with the colors...don't know yet if I will paint it...

Dr.Pia Salk...Spokesperson for Adopt-A-Pet

Let me introduce you to Dr.Pia Salk, she is one of the nicest people I have met on the internet, her love for helping animals is heartfelt and amazing, I really respect and admire her.

Dr.Pia is also a writer and the spokesperson for, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website. She is a professor in the area of diversity and family systems and a frequent guest on national radio programs, speaking on such topics as companion animals being important members of the family. Her extensive involvement in animal rescue efforts and her expertise on animal welfare have been featured on many national shows including The Martha Stewart Show.

Check out the Adopt-A-Pet website and find it in your heart to help.

The painting of "Pickles" is Dr. Pia's dog that she saved and gave a wonderful rest of her life (Pickles had gone to doggy heaven last year) and shown here is my interpretation of Pickles in a painting.

Featured as well is a miniature painting of "Minnow" another Chihuahua that Dr. Salk has just adopted.

Thank You Dr.Pia for all you do for Pets that need help.
