I love the warmth of this picture. This is the same cat (Amy) that I painted a couple weeks ago. I love the pattern in the rug and her yellow toy star. I grew up with lots of cats around. They were the other members of the family. This is a 6 x 8 inch unframed oil painting available in my Etsy shop for $125. Click here to see this painting and others that are available. Thanks to Ariane Kraemer at paintmyphoto.ning.com for the great reference photo.

This rabbit was sleeping in our yard on a frosty morning. The light was cool and it looked like a blue ball because it's ears were flat against its head. Then as the sun got higher, the light and the rabbit got warmer. I watched it as it woke up and ran away. This 5 x 7 inch framed oil painting on a canvas panel and is available for $125 at the John Deaux Gallery in Pueblo, CO. Call the gallery at (719) 545-8407 to purchase or contact me via email.

These paintings are a series I did of a young Western Kingbird. I love the color of this bird. Its yellow belly and purple-gray back feathers are perfect complements. Birds are cute and comical to watch in all their different poses. These unframed 4 x 4 inch paintings are available in my Etsy shop for $45 each.
