Every year for Christmas my husband surprises me with a new ornament. This is the newest kind of reminds me of the "Cat on a Dresser" painting that I recently painted. I just hope my real cat doesn't break it! Have a great Christmas everyone!

Fox Hunt

This was painted from a photo that my mother took at a fox hunt. Don't worry, no animals were harmed during the hunt, it is only for sport. Every time I planned to go with her I had to go somewhere, there was bad weather or it was canceled, so she let me use one of her pictures. This painting is on 24" x 30"canvas.

Cat and Drafting Table

This is my mom's cat, Preston. He is in her art studio by the drafting table that was supposed to be mine that I never took when I moved out. We believe that Preston is my cat's brother. They have the same eyes and noses. This oil on canvas is 8" w x 17" h x 1" d. SOLD.

Cat on a Dresser

When Oliver's scratching at the blankets doesn't wake me up in the morning, he jumps up on the dresser and threatens to knock my valuable perfume and other breakable items on the floor. Then he likes to scratch at his reflection in the mirror, which we refer to as Bizoliver, because it is like a Bizarro World Oliver. The painting is on 9" h x 12" w canvas panel.

Another Oliver Portrait

It is sometimes very difficult to get a picture of Oliver. It is a game for him to evade the camera. I'll point it to take the perfect picture, then at the last minute, he will put his ears back or look away. That is why his ears are back or tilted in most of my paintings of him. He looks a little surly, but that is just a facade, he is really quite friendly. This painting is on 16" w x 20" h canvas.


Though Oliver is not allowed on the counter he jumps up when we are not looking to either look out the windows or to search for water in the cups and plates that are sometimes in the sink. The painting is 9" w x 12" h. SOLD.

The Hound with Two Hearts

The pattern on this Foxhound looks like a heart. So he has two hearts. The painting is on 9" w x 12" h canvas panel.
