Commissioned Portraits by www.LightPixieStudio.com

A selection of my portrait work side-by-side. How revealing! I knew color is "my thing" and that the "eyes" are key. I have a favored color palette, a "look"…

Here’s a tender scene, grandson learning bee culture from his grandfather who is a beekeeper. This new painting is companion to last year’s On the Road that featured the boy’s sister walking a country lane beside a loyal and loved black dog. Each child is engaged in a joyful moment that becomes a favorite memory. Paintings of brother and sister now hang side by side, gifts to celebrate fleeting days of childhood. Tiny blue flowers remind them and all of us to remember the happy times. Childhood, Rafting, Country, Dog, Kids On The Block, Grandfather, Child, Bee Keeping

This is my newest painting, On the Road, for a grandfather who fondly recalls when his granddaughter was barely taller than his favorite dog. The big, lovable Lab cast himself as protector for the small girl as they walked down a country road. The dog is patient and she goes confidently by his side because it’s a partnership of love and trust.  Whatever path you choose, may it lead to good places! Be productive and joyful. May you share your path with others you admire, trust, and love. Children

One of the most famous homes in America, the Carson Mansion is spectacular architecture. It catches the eye and begs to be photographed. Newsom Brothers Architects used elements of several vernacular styles to embellish this Victorian masterpiece in Eureka, California.   A photo of the building as it looks today accompanied an invitation to join in the fun of a bragging rights Halloween contest and sparked inspiration for the witchly hand on a wicked crystal ball!

This is a new painting. It can take a long time to get to know the subject and the painting won't come together until I do! So it seemed like a really good subject, a variation on the tried and true messages about love, to explore for Valentine's Day.  True love isn't a one day event each year. Wherever there is a pair of loving hearts it can flow and grow. Raeven in this painting is a very loved dog and she returns the same to her humans with total commitment.

Thoughtful Explorer 2014. This painting tells an amazing story, hinted at by the boy's quizzical look and the bat bridge in Austin, Texas, in the background. I spent very satisfying four months during the winter of 2013-2014 completing this commission. Texas, Winter, Austin Tx, Artist, Studio Portraits

Golden Retrievers At Play in the Northwoods: Meet Champ, Max and Sam. I like the overall scope of this, my most recent painting, very much as it tells a story and preserves a history. The dogs intrigue me as they interact with one another while retaining their separate lifetimes. It is an imaginary day based in real memories. I like rich color but also the dusky shadows behind. It's about the dogs! I believe my client will come to appreciate At Play in the Northwoods even more as time passes. Golden Retrievers, Large Dogs, Play, Golden Retriever, Canine

2013 Let the Feasting Begin - A Corgi Merry Christmas. A white and Merry Christmas is upon us. Here we have two other Pembroke Corgis, Lu Lu and Aggie, who were invited to the holiday table. Through the back window cold snow and freezing rain lay heavily upon the lawn. This pair waits patiently for what they hope will be more than savory smells but a true Corgi Merry Christmas! 2013 Corgis, Celebration, Christmas, Snow, Merry Christmas, Merry, Corgi, Holiday

This 2012 painting, The Frog Whisperer, shows what really happens in this child’s day-to-day world, not once, not twice, but over and over again. Yes, she is patient beyond anything you’ve ever seen. And she’s quietly purposeful enough to gentle a bullfrog into her hands. Children’s Day, Gentle, Frog, Bullfrog

Leah Collected shows a bay-colored Morgan who was several times over Grand National Dressage Champion also known as horse ballet. The highest level of skill, intelligence, strength, and difficulty is called Collection and at the peak of her career Leah was a master. This scene in the river really happened and the way Leah’s family wants to remember her--running freely, full of life, soaked with the joy of plunging headlong into river water—a permanent, tangible memory of Leah.
