Boxing With Art

I have finally completed my Boxer portrait. It took me longer than I would have liked but you can’t rush art. I find myself using more and more charcoal as I keep creating new pieces. It makes it easier to get the contrast I like in the shadows. The only problem is charcoal is veryContinue reading “Boxing With Art”

Another Day, Another Dog

I have never had the pleasure to meet a Border Collie in person. They have become quite popular though and are deemed by most as the smartest dog breed out there. As well as intelligent, they also are highly energetic. They were initially bred to herd sheep in England and Scotland. I decided to drawContinue reading “Another Day, Another Dog”

A Farewell to Phantom

“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.” ~Albert Schweitzer~   I’ve been sitting at my computer, at a loss for words. I really don’t know what to say. I have known so many people who have lost pets in the past six months. What can you say? I’mContinue reading “A Farewell to Phantom”

So Pugly

When I was in grade school, my friend had a pug. My dog at the time was Phoebe, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. I adored her. Corgis are the cutest dogs in the world; in my opinion at least. My friend believed it was pugs. We would playfully argue on a daily basis on whose dog was cuter.Continue reading “So Pugly”

Spread the Happy

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” -Roger Caras I love how happy dogs are all the time! They truly understand how to be happy with what they have. They also love nothing more than the company of a good friend(…and good food). I love when dogs smile. Smiles are contagiousContinue reading “Spread the Happy”

They have two rows of heat pits that run along their mouth. Because of their striking appearance, IContinue reading “Beautiful Boa”

Pet Portrait: Jerzey Girl

Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet a great big fluff ball of lovins’ named Jerzey. Her human, Kristine, is a friend of mine I met when I was doing the Entrepreneur Boot Camp in Albany. I just finished Jerzey’s portrait recently and delivered it yesterday. I was unable to meet her before I drew theContinue reading “Pet Portrait: Jerzey Girl”

Dog Days

I am definitely a dog person. Don’t get me wrong I love cats too. I don’t think I could live without a dog in my house though. I mean, they bring a certain cheer to the place. No matter what, you know that there is always a happy greeting when you get home. Whenever you areContinue reading “Dog Days”

Oh, To Be King…

I have a strong connection with big cats. Lions, tigers, and cougars are among my favorites. They have a great power and strength behind them. Lions, in my opinion, live one of the toughest lifestyles imaginable. The lionesses are constantly on the hunt for food. Working as a team, so in tune with each other.Continue reading “Oh, To Be King…”

The Eyes Have It

I’ve been trying to figure out what my niche is. I love drawing so many different things but throughout the years I’ve realized my image is kind of muddy. Each piece is great on its own but when I would put together a portfolio, there was no consistency. I had a little bit of thisContinue reading “The Eyes Have It”
